"Original Material Remarkable That It "
material remarkable that it survived et alone brought to us now in sometimes gruesome detail the murder of Rasputin the early attempts on his ife the conspirators and their plot and the police investigation that uncovered the facts This I found the most compelling sections of the book in particular the careful way in which Nelipa presents the original evidence and then Love for Imperfect Things lays out what seem to be eminently reasonable suppositions based on that evidenceThe book also contains a vivid picture of a dissolute aristocracy that was behind the plot and that also sought to destroy the reign of Nicholas II The revelation that Nicholas own close relatives including his mother condoned or conspired with the murder and sought to denigrate Alexandra and Nicholas was particularly shockingAnd as well there is in effect woven through the book a biography of Rasputin that dispels the common myths about hisife and character and helps to explain the mystery of how a Siberian peasant became so close to the imperial family and how this access was used by others to attack them The description of how Rasputin came to be autopsied buried dug up and cremated forms an interesting coda to his A Heart of Stone life s story There are many pictures and documents theast one of Nicholas daughter Maria s sketch of the Rasputin family home while on the way to what would prove to be their place of execution is particularly touching It would way to what would prove to be their place of execution is particularly touching It would better if the kindle allowed hot Taking Instruction (Taboo, linking from the text to the document rather than having to manually go to theist of documents at the end but that is a minor issue Wonderfully "immersive well researched and well written account of Rasputin s murder and the events eading up to it DNF about halfway "well researched and well written account of Rasputin s murder and the events eading up to it DNF about halfway had no idea what exactly the author was trying to tell me apart from the fact that Rasputin was poor and misunderstood and the people who killed him were immoral evil monsters Anything else got Divertimento lost by the author throwing every single name and date she could find at us So you know exactly what person X did on day Y but it s not really clear what you should make of that She also doesn tet you forget that she speaks Russian so we get sentences Love Is a Fairy Tale like the masses accused the empress of being a Nemka German pos 1554 Look Nemka just means German woman It s not an untranslatable word with special connotations You could have just written accused the empress of being a German We also get gemsike Guiseva s appearance shows a nasal deformity that exaggerated her coarse peasant appearance pos 799 about a woman who tried to murder Rasputin Because only ugly people could hate that angelic saintly creature I ve always been told those at the very top and those at the very bottom have a Promise at Dawn lot in common The Russian royal family their friends and Rasputin were a perfect if deadly fit Rasputin s death alwayseaves me awed but aughing I mean his murderers did everything they could to kill him and the guy just would not die Ineptitude on their part or immortal on his amazing Nicholas always struck me as an ineffectual eader Wasn t very smart on his part to Bangkok Wakes to Rain leave Alexandra and Rasputin in charge for even an hour Seems to me he would haveistened a bit.
