Publisher Description

"Impressive."
THE WASHINGTON POST BOOK WORLD
Spanning 1800 years of Russia's history, people, poltics, and culture, Edward Rurtherford, author of the phenomenally successful SARUM: THE NOVEL OF ENGLAND, tells a grand saga that is as multifaceted as Russia itself. Here is a story of a great civilization made human, played out through the lives of four families who are divided by ethnicity but united in shaping the destiny of their land.
"Rutherford's RUSSKA succeeds....[He] can take his place among an elite cadre of chroniclers such as Harold Lamb, Maurice Hindus and Henri Troyat."

NoBrainerToMe ,

Russia

Great research and solid history. Book did not flow well and some of the interesting characters just ceased to exist instead of engaging us with their remaining exploits and demise.

This book is about ALL of Russia!

It took me a period of 7 months of on and off reading to finish this book, but it was worth it! There were many interesting characters and I now feel like I have a better understanding of the complexities of Russian history and culture.

Gave up

As a book lover, finishing what I start is important. I couldn’t get into this one, managing just a third. I loved London and Sarum, but not enough depth and continuity in any of these characters. Wanted to like it but moving on.
