This is one of the best books i have read in the the last 12 months.

Rasputin’s Daughter is considered historical fiction. it is based around Maria, one of Grigori Rasputin’s daughters. The book covers the time frame of up to a week prior to Rasputin’s death.

Rasputin himself has been world renowned as a charlatan, a genius, a monk, faith healer and psychic. in folklore, his powers were limitless, his ability to manipulate was matchless, and it took a whole lot to kill the bastard. most of the world knows him as one of the most evil and untamed humans ever to live.

Maria is a different person all together. she is mellow and loving, sweet and kindly. she sees nothing but purity in her father. Maria herself is confused, she is lonely and sad, but she has high hopes for her future. Maria is a daddy’s girl through and through.

the book reads well. the dialogue through out the book is excellent and persuasive.

RD leads you down som interesting thought paths. what happens if you remove the demonized perception of Rasputin and instead review the history of his culture in Siberia? was he really as evil as they all make him appear, or was he nothing more than a pawn in a political game, murdered and defamed in order to regain control during a coup? Maria’s perspective does exactly that, it allows him the luxury of “innocence” and allows the reader to see this historical figure in a light that would never normally be possible. we have all learned the legends too well to question them otherwise.

for anyone who cares for historical fiction, this is a great book. those who enjoy general fiction or romance thrillers, this is also a good choice.

~~

yes, for those who are interested, there is some detailed discussion on the size, length,girth of Rasputin’s cock.. no conversation pertaining to him is complete with out at least mentioning it.. it is is supposedly in the Russian museum of erotica, after all. the book even makes mention of his penis’s powers to heal, though it was still attached to his body during the time frame in the book.

go magic cock and undying men!
