  • This book, for me, was mediocre The history behind this story was fascinating, but the way the story was executed, was ill conceived There were two alternating story lines that were asynchronous to one another, which made for a pretty confusing reading experience However, with all that being said, I still really enjoyed the story and the history This novel chronicled the final days of the Romanov family, shining a light on Anastasia Did she die in Ekaterinburg with the rest of her family or This [...]

  • 4 engrossing stars to I Was Anastasia Being approved to read an early copy of I Was Anastasia was like winning the lottery to this historical fiction fan Not only because of my love for the genre, but also because of my interest in Anastasia Not because she was a princess necessarily, but because growing up I remember discussions about Anna Anderson and if she was or was not the real Anastasia Romanov Ariel Lawhon ambitiously tackles this notion in a genius structure through writing 4 engrossing [...]


  • Those unfamiliar with the Anastasia Romanov Anna Anderson story will find much to like in this fictional novel It s an effective introduction to the bizarre controversy surrounding two historical people My experience was a bit different As others have mentioned, Anastasia s story is told chronologically while Anna s story is told in reverse order Given that this is well worn material, I understand that the author chose this structure for dramatic effect However, I found it to be a contrivan Thos [...]


  • 3.5 I am fairly familiar with the last days of the Romanovs, having read a few non fiction books about the subject The woman who appears and tries to prove that she is a Romanovs daughter Anastasia, I was less familiar In alternating chapters we follow both stories The one of the Romanovs imprisonmrnt and eventually murder is written in a linear timeline, the story of Anna is told backwards in time, even within the same Chapter, we go backwards.I did like learning about the girls persona 3.5 I a [...]
