Calling this historical fiction is a bit of a stretch It s a romance novel not my preferred genre that happens to be set in St Petersburg

I was very disappointed in the book I had high hopes for it as I love historical fiction and pre revolutionary Russia is a fascinating time However I did not like or understand the main characters motivations And I found the book dragged on I literally fell asleep reading it a few times Normally I wouldn t finish a book like this and therefore not write a review but I kept hoping it would turn around for me and it just never did

I can t really rate this one There is not real driving plot elements and some parts are well done while others are not so much It was like driving on a road where some of it was paved last month and some was paved in the last century The level of rockiness in the storytelling can vary I guess I was a bit disappointed than not since I was expecting a gritty and honest telling of life for Jews in pre revolutionary Russia but instead we just got all this love triangle BS and the history seemed almost a bit trivialized He was an almost comically unlikeable character this Lenin as Horace told his fellow workers at Faberg He d lived abroad until April and hated all the home grown revolutionaries he d found here on his return and wanted to steal their triumph from them His head was polished smooth like a billiard ball and who hated music because he said it made him want to say kind stupid things and pat people s heads when what you wanted to do nowadays was beat them without mercy Needless to say this one was historically accurate than Tsarina but I wish it had that book s plot constancy but please no magic eggs thank you very much I m not sure whether to applaud Bennett for not giving a definite position on certain issues just as her characters would have been confused by a man such as Grigori Rasputin or if it would ve been better she showed he did have affairs but not with the empressEverything regarding the romance in this book also seemed a little rushed I can excuse a little instalove between Inna and Yasha but I didn t really get the chemistry between Inna and Horace Like I get the plot importance but it would ve been nice if we d gotten used to the fact that Inna and Horace were married instead of skipping five yearsAnother thing I noticed is that Inna doesn t have a lot of personality She s like one big plot device only there isn t a lot of plot Considering everyone seems to know she s a Jew the characters seem a bit too nice to her Judging from the treatment the Rabinovitch family faced in A Countess Below Stairs the English at that time were also kind of anti Semitic too so I m not sure if Horace would ve really been so easily attracted to InnaOne particular part that confuses me is that when Inna and Madame Leman visited the bread lines and laughed the whole time Was this commonplace or is there something the author doesn t uite getDespite this there are some good observations made about life in revolutionary Petrograd but no clear mood is set for the duration of these scenes What Horace said whenever the conversation turned to the Revolution was fine words butter no parsnips And he was right Inna couldn t help noticing that Madame Leman cooked soup for midday on good days if there were cabbages or potatoes on salePavlov a Nobel scientist growing his own carrots and potatoes poor old professor Gezekhus blown up with hunger or Nastya the teenage daughter of the family upstairs who d taken to hanging around outside on the street not with the icons and pearl brooches but with her cheeks boldly rouged and a pinched look on her face How long before Agrippina went the same way How long before she herself The one character here with definite traits is Yasha the only one who s perspective really gets into the motives of the revolutionaries but like Kestrel in The Winner s Curse I did not like him with Inna having sex for no apparent reasonI m not totally against sex in books I loved The Blood of Flowers and Empress of the Night but when it s not necessary to show a part of the plot it seems cheap I mean Perhaps it was only because of her secret with Yasha that snatched other life with her lover experienced in minutes and whispers and kisses in that roon in the dust and dark by lamplight which she hardly dared call to mind here in front of her husband that Inna could even begin to understand that in a different way she also secretly yet profoundly desired that Stradivarius of Yousoupoff sOverall I was disappointed but I see potential in this author with a better story to tell hopefully with less love triangle
