    Having read some of the negative reviews of this book in the past I didn't expect to like it but I rather did I thought it gave a fairly balanced portrait of the grand duchess the positive and the negative traits hence the whole person as well as of her sons their wives grandchildren and others in her family circle I would have preferred there was less about Anna Anderson whose photo they even included in the book but on the whole I enjoyed this book and even learned a few new things

    Not exceptionally scholarly but a very pleasant read about the younger sister of Czar Nicholas II

    Just finished reading the biography of Olga Romanov the youngest sister of the last Russian Tsar While it is a fascinating story because she ended her days above a storefront on Gerard Street in Toronto the biography sadly doesn’t do her life justice Too often the author’s florid prose interferes with Olga’s incredible life However it is an easy and uick read for anyone curious about the last Grand Duchess of Russia

    I'm sort of a fan of all things Russian especially all things Imperial Russia so it was no great leap for me to read this book It concerns Olga Romanova the sister not the similarly named daughter of the infamous Tsar Nicholas II I must admit it was pretty fascinating to read about a historical character so oft overlooked in Imperial Russia's final days especially as it connected to my homeland of Canada as Olga Romanova spent her final years there It's pretty well researched though a few errors Romanov used instead of Romanova etc but nothing too concerningWhy the slightly lower rating then? Well I hate to be a sourpuss but I'm a little tired of how the entire Romanov family is so martyred in every portrayal non fic or otherwise Oh The Horror Olga had to live like commonfolk You know like the rest of us I know I know comes with the territory of talking about Imperial Russia I know I know my socialist views are showing I know I know why should I really expect anything else from a book about the Romanovs? But still it could help to be a little less biasedAlso and while I do realize this is nitpicking for a non fic book some of the creative phrases the author used to convey information were a little overdone and monotonous Yes non fic but you are nevertheless telling a story to the general publicSo yeah some problems but if you're looking for a rather uniue view of the final years of the Romanov dynasty then this is a fairly engaging read

    It was okay Kind of dry and didn't focus on her involvement with the royal family like I wish it did It is unfortunate how the people within the royal family were unable to sustain themselves however because they weren't taught to survive and cannot take certain work because they see it as beneath them because of their royal blood That is something I don't think about and was curious to read about here
