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."

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.
