I found The Romanov Sisters to be a little dry. I know this is a very niche history book, I get it really. At 381 pages it’s not that long, but it was just too much detail for me. I did fear from the beginning that it might be a little slow for me, so I started “reading” this book via Overdrive a tool that my local library subscribes to which enables me to download an audiobook to my smartphone where I can listen to it. I had I think 10 or 12 days to finish the audiobook. But I just couldn’t do it. I had to re-borrow this audiobook again after a forced period of absence. It was on hold by other patrons, so I had to wait my turn in the queue again.
I’m glad I finished the book, but this would not be one that I keep in my personal library even if I had purchased it. I’m glad for the free lend from the library in this case. I gave the book 3 stars. I was interested in the mystery of how the family was murdered, but the story was all about how they grew up and even quite a bit in the beginning about their parents. If you have a deep interest in this family, you will probably appreciate the thoroughness of this author. If like me you are just interested in the mystery around this family, this book will probably bore you.
