It surprises me no-one has yet touched on this subject, so here goes !

Just finished this book. Now I’m not a great fiction-reader, as usually the “fiction”  to me is more like “science-fiction”, but this book is the exception ! A véry pleasant read. Once you start you can't put it down.

Well thought-through (and very important: believable) storyline, descriptive enough so you can make it visual in your own mind, flashbacks into Imperial and Soviet Russia that seem so real that you can’t help thinking these  situations actually happened (but you know it’s “just” fiction), and véry lifelike characters (“Can I wear Balençiaga to breakfast” (pg 232)  brought back happy memories! :))

Has anyone else read “Object of Virtue”, and if so what did yóu think of it ?

Hi all,

for my first post: a Czech website with heeps of genealogies of European Royal and Noble families.
Very readable, very informative, and all in English.
I don't think it has been mentioned on this forum yet - but I can be wrong - in that case I humbly apologise :-X
