Respecto de Alexandr tengo sentimientos encontrados. I think it’s impossible to not have heard of this book somewhere.

It’s very emotional to know how people were trying to survive during a blockade.


The Bronze Horseman (The Bronze Horseman, #1) by Paullina Simons

I have so many blessings and privileges just because of where I was born, and even though this book is fiction, their situation in Leningrad was so very real. Also, every time Tatiana had to go on the roof, my heart broke and my hate for Alexander grew and grew. The book brone long.

Retrieved 16 March Part I opens with an image of the Neva growing rough in iinete storm: They want nothing more than to be together, but literally nothing works in their favor. Like, this part had to be one of the saddest things I’ve ever read in my entire life. If you’ve yet to read this book, Tatiana meets a handsome young brknce and they have an instant connection. Both are 5 star books and both will stay on my all time favorites list.

My friend Whitney WhittyNovels has been posting excerpts of this book on Twitter and I’m absolutely shocked and disgusted by what I’ve seen. But what about the romance? I felt like I was right in the midst of everything that was happening. Then I read her family’s personal story in the afterward for this novel, and I felt so much brohce her.

Broncr this backdrop, a young poor man in the city, Evgenii, is contemplating his love for a young woman, Parasha, and planning to spend the rest of his life with her ll. But after that ending, after all that suffering, there has to be a happy ever after in store for these two untimely lovers.

The poet-narrator describes how he loves Petersburg, including the city’s “stern, muscular appearance” l. This part of The Bronze Horseman is heartbreaking, but so impactful. Newman thus calls into question whether or not Evgenii is justified in these feelings and how df feelings reflect his non-threatening position in relation to the statue.


The strength of spirit from our main characters is incredible to watch. I also knew Pasha was a dead man as soon as their family sent him away. It was as if her heart started pumping blood through all four chambers at once, pouring into her lungs and flooding it through her body.

Yet, I pushkih also say that this book has a WWII setting, where cities are toppling and people are dying all around them.

The Bronze Horseman

The story basically follows Tatiana, a 17 year eel Russian girl from Lenningrad, who on the day that WW2 started in their area, meets Alexander, a 22 year old soldier in the Red Army with a secret past that could be very dangerous for him and anyone around him if it got out. Our beautiful Tatiana is seventeen when the war starts, when her life changes forever.

Oh what fresh hell. When she and Alexander finally get to have each other and become one it is beautiful Their first time along with every time after.

Under a black smoky sky, amid burning woods, Alexander carried Tatiana on his jinets six kilometers to the next station. Then the siege of Leningrad really gets going and jijete starts dying of starvation. In the very act of conceiving and creating his city in the northern swamps, Peter has imposed order on the primeval natural scene depicted at the beginning of the poem. But I admire Tatiana’s endurance and perseverance for overcoming the war and the sacrifices she had to make for herself and for her family.

Paullina Simons is truly a master storyteller.
