5 Star Review of Rasputin and The Jews

February 19, 2013

5.0 out of 5 stars A Different View on Rasputin, February 18, 2013

 Amazon Verified Purchase

I am a lover of historical books and readings, and particularly enjoy eastern European history. My earlier readings that touched on Rasputin painted quite a different picture of him. This book made him a believable person with some enduring human qualities, not the madman of prior history books and historical fiction. If we are to believe these writings, we see a kind, humane Rasputin who disliked intently the persecution of the Jews in Russia and who had strong religious beliefs. The author offers enough sources to read further if one wants to check the veracity of his own writings. I am eager to research more, but I, like so many others, find myself reading more of the books on my “bucket list of books.” Hopefully, some day I can do this. Rasputin was a character not easy to forget and so enjoyable about which to read.
