I really enjoyed this book, so much so that I've read it 3 times since I bought it 5 years ago. There is so much detail given to Catherine's life. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in Catherine's reign.

This book fails to give a general 'feel' of the times Catherine the Great lived in, which I think is essential in any good biography in order to understand the character. It would've been great to know about life in 18th century Russia. The writing is very bland and isn't written with much creativity or imagination; consequently it fails to capture the excitement of the character and the times she lived in.
