    "I like reading about history, and I liked the way this book presented facts about the Russian Civil War. Usually, there isn't a lot of information about this topic, and I'm glad this book did a decent job covering it."

    "For those who aren't aware, Singapore is basically like a melting pot of different Asian cultures, usually people from the Southeastern part of the continent and from the various Pacific islands. This book presents a historical account of the Chinese "coolies" - migrant laborers who strove to have and provide higher education for their people, but were often at odd with the greater society. This is a fascinating read, although I will warn you, the early chapters are a bit random and unfocused, so you may want to skip ahead to get to the really good stuff."

    "Tsarina is a fun fantasy book. I really enjoyed the setting in Russia and the imagination of the young lead character. This was quite a magical journey and more interesting with the historical backdrop. I found this to be a real page turner. The book is also very attractive with solid red cover."

    " What makes this book great is it's human aspect. The story is told as if you are there. Listening in to conversations, hearing gossip, and reading newspaper headlines of the times, all concerning the Romanov family and it's members. It's a story about people, with all their flaws and strengths. Almost Shakespearean in nature. At some times, it's a tearjerker, the gloomy hopes of a mother hoping her children and grandchildren are alive and safe. At other times, it's a humorous recounting of the escapades of rich playboys, with all the R-rated deeds involved. Other times, it's a desperate struggle for one's own life, hiding the incriminating fact of your own last name."

    "It is an attractive work and it contains an interesting story but in the personal I think it needs more personification so that readers can feel attracted by the story"

    " This is non-fiction rather than historical fiction. It is about the fans of the English football team. In particular, it is about their reputation for violence. It consists mostly of stories from fans about various things they did that made it into the news. There is a particular focus on the riots during the UEFA Euro 1996 tournament. I found the stories interesting even though I am not particular interested in English soccer myself."
