Hi Sarushka,

It must be me. When I access the link there is no blue arrows or a pdf file to downlaod. There is a contents page but no links to access anything. I wonder if it is because I am using a Mac for some reason?

Go to your Google Search and put in Google Book Search and then once you are in the Google Book Search Page put in the Title or you may choose to search by Romanov and see all the Books they have on line to read. It is free and some are full viewing and others are snippet.  MAC's are different to use your right.

Like Michael HR, I can't seem to get this book through Google Book Search either. All I get is the review for it. The only book that I have been able to download is a book on Catherine the Great. I get the reviews, the snippets, but that is it. Hmmmm. Wonder what is up with that. I use Firefox as my main browser and I'm on a  new Sony laptop  with Windows Vista. If  anyone out there can help it sure would be appreciated.

Shouldn't be -- I'm using a Mac, too.

I'm stumped!

Does the direct link work?

http://books.google.com/books?id=YxIEAAAAYAAJ

try this

http://books.google.com/books?id=YxIEAAAAYAAJ&printsec=titlepage&source=gbs_summary_r&cad=0

This is really weird, because I can see it and my computer won't even download PDF's. I never clicked on 'download PDF', but the left half of the page already had the book loaded.

Thanks for the link, but still nothing. Oh well.

Nope. Still can't get it. Well, it is not like I don't have other books on the Romanovs that I can read...:-)

Thanks for trying, Helen.

Hi,

I also still cannot access the file. How odd?

Wow, that is weird. I posted it as an image in one of the files on my own website, it's strange that you can't get in there either! I'm stumped.

I suspect the reason some of you can't view the file is because of some security feature in the browser you're using. I have NO idea what that feature/combo/etc. it may be, but I did think of one work around if you allow pdf file downloads. 

Here's the direct link to the pdf:
[url]http://books.google.com/books/pdf/The_Last_Days_of_the_Romanovs.pdf?id=YxIEAAAAYAAJ&output=pdf&sig=2_NEQdOlJ6HfyCguUqz2kfDby6w[url]

Shorty after you download it, you'll most likely get a prompt to accept or deny some service, I forget what, from google. I clicked "deny" and was still able to view the book. The title starts on page 9.

Hope that helps!

There is also another online source to read this book that may be easier to download in various forms i.e. text:

http://www.archive.org/details/lastdaysoftherom008558mbp

for example:
http://www.archive.org/stream/lastdaysoftherom008558mbp/lastdaysoftherom008558mbp_djvu.txt

The reason this is inaccessible to so many on Google Books is because we're not US residents.
Google explains a bit in their F.A.Q., but the general summary is that Google only has permission to distribute the download-able books around in the States.

Much Thanks Joanna for the link!
