Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Julia Emelin, Rustam Kasymov

Fiction • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Julia Emelin's authentic-sounding Russian accent, distinct exotic pronunciations, and halting pacing are the perfect vehicles to deliver this sweeping account of the fall of the Romanovs. The story is seen through the eyes of Masha Rasputin, the daughter of Grigory Rasputin, the "mad monk." As each blunder brings the characters closer to their destinies, listeners can’t help but come to care about them—especially Tsar Nicholas and his family. The relationship between the hemophiliac Prince Alexi and young Masha, who entertain themselves by telling stories of their families to pass the time, is especially tragic. Kasymov's short portrayal of the prince is also memorable. A.C.P. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2012]
