The End of the Romanovs | Victor Alexandrov

I‘ve always had a fascination with the Romanovs, and apparently my grandfather did too. This was from his personal collection and has his bookplate inside. Published in 1966, the price on the inside bookflap is $6.50. 😆

The most iconic theme song from the original Star Wars movies! It‘s the song everyone thinks of and hums when they think STAR WARS!

#ImperialMarch made me think of this book, which I read for college. Not exactly imperial, but it made me think of the struggles one family witnessed as Vietnam changed leadership and foreign control, and, ultimately, a look at how divided the country came. It‘s a narrative filled with sorrow, but yet also with hope. It‘s even more touching as the author wrote about her family. #SoaringScores

4thhouseontheleft I read this in college too. 2mo
Cinfhen This looks just like the types of history books I find most fascinating/ engaging. Thanks for sharing 2mo
CrowCAH Definitely part of a dynasty, which is imperial. 2mo

I assume the reference is to Wagner's Kaisermarsch 😂

CarolynM @Cinfhen I'm not a fan of Wagner but I am a fan of Simon Callow, both as a writer and an actor. 2mo

Libby1 Simon Callow is spectacular. We saw him in a one man show in London. 2mo
CrowCAH Can‘t say I‘ve read any of his work. 2mo
CarolynM @Libby1 What did you see? We were lucky enough to see his Dickens show when he toured Australia with it quite a few years ago now. It was wonderful! There was an extraordinary silence and stillness in the audience you only get with a really exceptional performance. 2mo
CarolynM @CrowCAH I think all his books are excellent, but my favourite is his first memoir 2mo
Libby1 We saw his Shakespeare show. We were in the second row and it was magnificent! 2mo
CarolynM @Libby1 I'm green with envy🙂 2mo

Cinfhen I‘ve yet to read Noam Chomsky but I hear he‘s brilliant 2mo
CrowCAH Oh, a 9/11 novel. Based on the cover thought it was a WWII book. 2mo
