Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 1993

Travel back to the time of the last Tsar of Russia; to the most publicized mystery of the empire, the death of Nicholas and Alexandra; to the days of Lenin, revolution and murder. Edvard Radzinsky has painstakingly researched and compiled this narrative, weaving first-person narrative, historical documentation, and myth, all made available because of glasnöst. David McCallum reads this complicated chapter in Russian history using little inflection or differentiation of characters. The scenes flow one into another as the listener attempts to attach names to personalities. Unlike a Russian novel, there is no list of characters and their nicknames; thus, it's difficult to remember who is who. Although the narration is clear, this work is better suited to print or performance without abridgment. M.B.K. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 93]
