    Interesting Read

    I enjoyed this biography. Having read almost every biography of Alix written in English, I feel like in this one, she is somewhat vindicated. I liked how the author used more psychological reasoning as to why she did some of the things she did. For someone who "knows the story," it was a fairly quick read. If one was not familiar with the story of Alix of Hesse, one would no doubt want to find out more--not only about her, but her family and the political situation of the time.

    Well told story of a sad life.

    Interesting account of the Russian Revolution through the eyes of the doomed empress.

    Presents a less judgmental, more rounded portrait

    Same sad story, but with new insights. Alexandra's miserable in-laws, the vicious courtesans, the hatred thrust upon her from the very start of her marriage...

    Another 'good read' from C. Erickson!

    Erickson explores and relates a more psychological analysis of the Empress Alexandra. Instead of writing her off as a control freak, Erickson provides an insight of Alix's nature. The information on her early life and its relation to her development was most enlightening.
