The rest of the introduction is in the first person and reads as an ode to the city of Petersburg. For all the shit Pusukin talked about her constantly, it broke me. It’s definitely the longest book I’ve read and I’ve successfully read it within a day.

Alexander was a bit more complicated to understand. The war has not yet touched this city of fallen grandeur, or the lives of two sisters, Tatiana and Dasha Metanova, who share a single room in a cramped apartment with their brother and parents.

Again, I love angst and it helped that the other woman was incredibly dislikeable throughout the majority of this book, too.

Sin embargo, ambos son capaces de torcerle la mano al destino y logran robarle un poco de tiempo para ellos. I’m not going to lie; this was a really hard book to read.

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

Think up a situation that would create a “forbidden love” scenario. I just spontaneously decided to read a war romance and stumbled upon The Bronze Horseman even when I was already reading two other books.

It will have your heart twisted up six ways to Sunday, and then some. Simons takes some steps towards goodness, but then it is ruin I’m pushiin quite confused. Buses, walks, dinners, ice cream, cabbage, love session, buses, w Oh what fresh hell.

If you’ve yet to read this book, Tatiana meets a handsome young soldier and they have an instant connection. I loved getting to know this Russia, seeing the struggles of Tatiana’s family and everyone else in Leningrad, and it was just overall really interesting being thrust into this time period.


The sacrifices that people make for one another in the name of love is so incredibly emotional to watch. University of California Press.

On the positive, Alexander really stepped up at the end of this and truly acted like the hero the book claimed him to be from the get go. But these things have all been achieved by Bronze Horseman. The statue is lauded for its ambiguity; it is said Pushkin felt the ambiguous message of the statue and was inspired to pen the poem. Todas las estrellas son pocas. ce

In a fit of rage, he curses the statue of Peter ll. Also, I’m assuming this story was meant to be a love story but 1. And the way she loved him?? It is simply an epic experience!!

The Bronze Horseman

So many people compare The Bronze Horseman to the jiente Outlander series when the only things that the books have in common is that they are lengthy historical fiction books featuring an epic romance. You will read about people fighting through injuries and deaths of loved ones and holding on after going weeks on end without but a scrap of food. For a year, he roams the street as a madman ll. The bottom line is that this book normalizes and promotes unhealthy and abusive interactions between a husband and a wife.

And if you haven’t read Outlander and want to but are put off by the length of the series and it not pusukin finished, then, this is the series for you! We all know that women who get it on with their sister’s boyfriends have a very special level of hell reserved for them, so Dasha must be portrayed in a way that will make us forgive Tatiana for her relationship with Alexander.

Alexander is emotionally abusive, physically abusive at times, overly controlling, and really manipulates Tatiana’s emotions for his own selfishness. On to Book 2!! I didn’t like the way it was handled.


While Tatiana is out and trying to actually find some food, she meets a soldier who will forever change her and her family’s life. Briggs praises the poem “as the best in the Russian language, and even the best poem written anywhere in the nineteenth century”. On top of the fact that Tatiana goes from an unhealthy relationship with her entire family, to an unhealthy relationship with Alexander.

I began to see her in a different light eventually her strength and determination caused me to see only the woman she became right before my eyes and not the young ignorant child she once was. This book is about getting up when you don’t think you can. The care that Tatia gives her Shura in return is just as much of an effort. View all 71 comments. View all 3 comments. This book devoured me and haunted me even in my sleep for 24 straight hours. She was every inspirational word I know, and I’ve never put on a pair of warm winter boots and not thought of her.

I even felt bad for Dasha, Tatiana’s sister, at first, because it’s not like jinte knew what was going on.

I want to jump right into the second book, but I need a little time and I want to spread out the greatness of Tatiana and her Shura. On top of that, fantasy has been my preferred genre of books to read. The city itself, “graceful yet austere” in its classical design, is, as much as the Falconet statue, Peter’s uinete monument, carrying on his struggle against the “wild, tumultuous” Finnish waves.
