And no I am not talking about the war. Tatiana is a naive and innocent girl who’s almost 17 and lives in a cramped room in Communist Russia with her grandparents, parents, sister, and brother. The Bronze Horseman symbolizes “Tsar Peter, the city of St Petersburg, and the uncanny reach of autocracy over the lives of ordinary people.

The story never dragged for me. I understand that he knew of Alexander’s American past, and that his family were considered Soviet Union traitors, but, like, he knew Dimitri had terrible intentions with the supposed girl he loves more than anything. A passionate love story focused on survival and the tragedies of war. Love story based in Russia during a war boy meets girl but marries older sister and older sister dies and he marries younger sister; long fat book.

Part I opens with an image of the Neva growing rough in a storm: This also effected the plot because most of the book was the two characters running around in circles over each other.

Tatiana and Alexander’s impossible love threatens to tear the Metanova family apart and expose the dangerous secret Alexander so carefully protects—a secret as devastating as the war itself—as the lovers are swept up in the brutal tides that will change the world and their lives forever.


I remember it all. I will never read this book. There had been one such devastating flood in and again induring Pushkin’s time and the flood modeled in the poem, and they continue to this day.

Like, I can’t think of a more romantic thing I’ve read, honestly. Besides some time to surrender over to this epic tale? These two will fight everything and everyone to be together. Saying I adored this book is not really enough.

The Bronze Horseman (The Bronze Horseman, #1) by Paullina Simons

I’ve heard about The Bronze Horseman a few months ago but I never really gave it a second thought because I don’t normally read historical fiction novels. When she and Alexander finally get to have each other and become one it is beautiful Their first time along with every time after. Because I am still in shock And all of that is only the first bit of the book. Well, the same thing can be said about The Bronze Horsemanand all the negative reviews surrounding their relationship are completely valid.

I have it on good authority that the last one ends with a HEA but its a long and bumpy road until then. What I’ve seen has left me feeling sick.

Honestly, I was an absolute wreck throughout my reading of it. Under a black smoky sky, amid burning woods, Alexander carried Tatiana on his back six kilometers to the next station.

The difficulties of construction were numerous, but Peter was unperturbed by the expenditure of human life required to fulfil his vision of a city on the coast.

The action then shifts forward abruptly by a hundred years, and the rest of the poem is set in a time when Peter is obviously long since dead. View all 99 comments. But will it be enough? Sharing secrets, telling stories, they become close.

But most important — ask: You do learn some facts df obviously they live through the war, but its the background.


But to juxtapose it, Dimitri is the worst and I pushkij don’t even understand why Alexander wouldn’t pushmin with him accordingly, but instead kept bringing him around Tatiana. For example, Tatiana and Alexander’s initial flirtations are exciting; it’s easy to get caught up in the angst of young love and all the issues that lie between them being together.

Alexander is in the Red Army. Their whole story from beginning to end was just heart-wrenching.

The introduction opens with a mythologized history of the establishment of the city of Saint Petersburg in Though the length of this book could be debatable, I really think it plays a huge role in the book itself. I honestly can’t believe he ruined everything, and even his death didn’t bring me satisfaction. Then the siege of Leningrad really gets going and everyone starts dying of starvation.

Tania will always be his guardian angelshe will always save him. It’s a heartwarming book that will take you over the moon. Yet, there are also a lot of good messages about the power of love and hope and perseverance in the face of any and everything trying to kill you.

Alexander doesn’t make the best choices along the way. I always thought that The Night Circus, a fantasy novel, would always be my favorite book of all time. I didn’t want to leave this part of the book, because I knew that part III was lulling me into a false sense of security. Anyway, back to convincing you The city itself, “graceful yet austere” in its classical design, is, as much as the Falconet statue, Peter’s living monument, carrying on his struggle against the “wild, tumultuous” Finnish waves.
