Misha was a tall man who walked with the slightest of limps, but over the last fifteen years, of course, he had grown smaller and his gait more halting as his body had settled and lost muscle mass. He’d always been trim, and it was this leanness that had undoubtedly contributed to his longevity and his lack of major illness.

The Kitchen Boy book. Robert Alexander does an excellent job with the entire setting and feeling of this book. It feels very personal and poignant, and the flow of this novel is astounding. Although we all know what ultimately happens to the Romanov family, the build up along the way is full of tension, anxiety, and fear. There is a heaviness that accompanies this story.

Very good book with lots of details of just how cruel and murderous the Reds were during the Communist Revolution in Russia, I have read many books about the murders of the Romanovs so was surprised at the depth of detail in this book,really well done historical fiction. Was surprised to learn the kitchen boy was executed By the Communists for counter revolutionary activities at the age of 29, if it were me I would have run for the hills as soon as I left that house. I had figured out much of the book but not the relationship between Maria and the red soldier. Quite a good story,highly recommend it.

I enjoyed every minute spent engrossed in this book. In recounting historical facts, the author has artfully woven his own notion of the "might-have-been" of those last days of the Czar and family. Well done.

Another interesting story about the last Tsar of Russia and his family. The story centers around their final months but interweaves the history of how they got there. The story also has this fictional character who is telling the this story in a 'last will & testament' for his grand-daughter. The story has an unusual ending so be ready. It'll blow your socks and then you'll have to remind yourself its just fiction.

I enjoyed this book greatly.

It’s the story of the final days of Russia’s last Tsar, Nicholas II, his kooky wife Alexandra Feodorovna, and their children, as they are held captive in Ekaterinburg, Siberia. The narrator, Leonka, is their 14-year-old kitchen boy, and most of the story revolves around Leonka helping the royals communicate with Tsarists supporters, and planning their escape.

I was intrigued by the synopsis because I’m a sucker for Russian history, historical fiction or nonfiction, especially near the end of the Romanov reign. That time period has become a favorite of mine over the years. But this book was a disappointment on a couple of levels. First, it was a bit short (240 pages), but even worse was the almost glowing portrayal of Tsar Nikki II and Alexandra. Both of these monarchs were horribly flawed rulers - Nikki II was a cold autocrat, and really quite ruthless to his people. Tsarina Alexandra was in my opinion a dingbat, totally obsessed with God. And religious icons. And God. And Rasputin. And more God. I think she and the Tsar were both fools of the highest order.

The kitchen boy, Leonka, gushes on about the love each of the royal family members have for each other. Almost nonstop, and it became beyond annoying. And it elicited no sympathy from me. Add to that the almost breezy style of writing and a truly corny twist at the end, and my cold, black heart just didn’t care. Nope.
It was only so-so.
And soon to be a cheesy movie, too!

I assume this book could be categorized as a historically accurate novel. The subject of this ruling family has been interesting to me for a long time. Most of what I recall is about Rasputin and the mess he made of everything so it is nice to read about them without hardly hearing his name. The family ruled for several centuries before there was a successful revolt and the outcome of new leaders and philosophies of the revolt are still developing today. It is a long read but I stayed with it to the bloody end.

To be honest with you, for the first few pages, I was not sure about this book. I even went so far as to come back to Amazon and ensure that it was worth continuing. And then, suddenly, I was transfixed. I didn't know much about Russian history, but this book compelled me to do a little research, and I was entranced by how studiously researched this book was. If you are a huge Russian history buff, I can't speak to each accuracy. If you are a little more ignorant of Russian history, I think you'll enjoy the story. Even the minutiae was fascinating.

Was every word perfectly chosen? No. Did the story make me want to keep reading? Yes. Was I super excited to see that it was, in fact, the first in a trilogy? Oh yeah!

A new look at the Romanov's last days as told by a "kitchen boy". I saw the royal family as a family a family loving and flawed like many of us. It was quite interesting and a fast read. I believe this is a good book for teens IF you are ok with just one paragraph in the book where the author describes graffiti in a bathroom that is sexual in nature. " Erect penis, big butt" The story teaches and is entertaining. The ending was another scenario to the Romanov story.
One of the BEST books I have ever read...Totally Recommended...this book should be a movie because it would be an Oscar worthy movie, I believe that not all that its released to the public its the absolute truth, so in my heart I wish that what the book describes of what happened on that terrible and bloody night would be the absolute truth.
