The golden skies, the translucent twilight, the white nights, all hold the promise of youth, of love, of eternal renewal. The war has not yet touched this city of fallen grandeur, or the lives of two sisters, Tatiana and Dasha Metanova, who share a single room in a cramped apartment with their brother and parents.
Campbell Ii. Set in her native St. Petersburg, Russia, Simons's latest thick novel after Tully, etc. As the story opens, Tatiana, the youngest member of the Metanova family, is just 17; she still shares a bed with her older sister, Dasha.
Not long after the country goes to war with Germany, Tatiana meets Alexander, a soldier, and sparks fly. It turns out, however, that Alexander is the same soldier Dasha has been crowing about.
Possessed of a strong sense of family loyalty, and living under conditions that permit no privacy, Tatiana refuses to interfere with her sister's happiness, but the attraction between Tatiana and Alexander proves too powerful.
Complicating matters, another soldier, Dimitri, has information that could destroy Alexander, and Dimitri likes Tatiana, too. In order to protect both Dasha's feelings and Alexander's life, the star-crossed lovers become part of a deceptive quadrangle as war intensifies around them. Taking her title from a tragic poem by Alexandr Pushkin, Simons skillfully highlights the ironies of the socialist utopia.
Despite the novel's sprawling length and its seemingly epic scope, the nearly single-minded focus on dialogue between Tatiana and Alexander leaves other character development shortchanged and the reader with the impression of a peculiarly tiny canvas. Nave and occupying the Cinderella role in her family, Tatiana is certainly a survivor though one who finally outstays her welcome. While her love story is often both tender and fierce, it is also overwrought and prolonged past the breaking point.

This is one of my favourite books, and I have recommended it to so many people. It will have you hooked from the start and I learnt a lot about WW2 and Russian history from this absolutely gripping and heart-breaking novel. I really enjoyed this book. The historical detail regarding Russia, Leningrad and World War 2 was very engaging. The love story theme has some rather unbelieveable moments but I still found myself looking forward to reading this novel every day.
Recommend it highly!!
Now this is a love story I've never read before, with sensual love scenes that puts "Fifty Shades of Gray" to shame. Really loved this story.
I love when a book manages to evoke so many emotions. It was intense, heartbreaking, frustrating at times, but it also had me hopeful and cheering. Tatiana and Alexander will be seared into my heart forever. The sacrifices they make for each other is nothing short of astounding. It is simply an epic experience!!
What is Kobo Super Points?
I went in blind of course and could not have been more awed by what I was reading! Honest to goodness it is just that amazing!! Thank goodness my library has the trilogy available, but this book is on sale right now on Amazon I will definitely look out for it!
This series sounds wonderful! KAS Nicola wrote: It was written ten years ago and this is book one of a three part series. Hopefully your library has a copy of them as it is not inexpensive to purchaseall three books. This book will always reside on my favorites shelf!! Have you ever loved something so much it made you cry? Have you ever needed someone so bad, you can't sleep at night? Have you ever tried to find the words, but they don't come out right?
Haaaave you everrrrrr? Right here. View all 36 comments. And that. It's been a while since a book has made me this angry. A lengthy video review will be upcoming on my channel. View all 18 comments. It consumed me. Utterly and completely consumed me. This story is impossible to review properly. No matte 5 stars is not enough! Our beautiful Tatiana is seventeen when the war starts, when her life changes forever.
Tatia develops feelings for a soldier named Alexander. Alexander is in the Red Army. Sharing secrets, telling stories, they become close. They feel this pull unlike anything else As the war continues, things get worse in Leningrad.
Tatiana is fighting for her life, trying to survive. The characters- endearing, strong and brave. The story- completely unforgettable. This is a book you have to read for yourself. I want to jump right into the second book, but I need a little time and I want to spread out the greatness of Tatiana and her Shura.

From the moment I started reading it, I could not put it down until I finished the very last page. And even then, I just HAD to start the second book right afterwards. Tatiana and Alexander's story is so unique and heartbreaking and beautiful , it's no wonder their story is one the most epic one's out there.
Filled with love, heartbreak, anguish, hurt, betrayal, laughter and tears , The Bronze Horseman is an unforgettable journey unlike any other romance novel I've ever read. And even though it's over pages long, there was never a dull moment in their entire story. You weren't looking for me. I found you. On the first day of war, her father has sent her out to buy food supllies, but on an impulse, Tatiana decides to take a break instead and takes a moment to buy ice cream and eat it on a sunny bench while waiting for the bus.
The Bronze Horseman
And that's when it happens. That's the moment that will change her life forever Whenever they're together, nothing else seems to matter and for a short amount of time they can truly be themselves.
But their hapiness is short lived because life and reality often get in the way of them being together. They want nothing more than to be together, but literally nothing works in their favor.
Not only the war and the awful living circumstances in Leningrad, but Tatiana's own family and Alexander's friend Dimitri prevent them from being together as well. They have to keep their feelings strictly hidden, which is often easier said than done. But most important - ask: I am Tatiana. But even their short moment of reprieve doesn't last long, because war is always looming over their shoulders As a high rank soldier of the Red Army Alexander knows desertation receives the highest punishment, so after every short break he always need to go back to the front.
Everything Tatiana and Amexander go through, all the pain and suffering, they do in order to save each other. But will it be enough? All I can say is that the first part of this series ends in a way that left my heart broken and made me want to start the next part right away!
You won't regret it View all 96 comments. Lovers of epic love stories. Viola and Quinn. For five minutes there was no war, and it was just a glorious Sunday in a Leningrad June.
When Tatiana looked up from her ice cream, she saw a soldier staring at her from across the street. Tatiana normally would have glanced past him down the street and moved on, except that this soldier was standing across the street and staring at her with an expression Tatiana had never seen before. She stopped eating her ice cream. Her side of the street was already in the shade, but the side where he stood swam in the northern afternoon light. 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.
She blinked and felt her breath become shorter. But it is lies, secrets and fears that eat at their souls and will threaten to tear them apart. My GAWD!!
The way he loved her?! Be still my heart! And the way she loved him?? I loved the yearning, the looks, the little touches, the tender and passionate moments between them, and also all their confrontations. This was by no means a perfect book. While Paullina Simons vividly paints pictures with her descriptions, there are times when the wordiness becomes too much, and may have benefited from a bit of editing down the repetitive moments. I can completely see why someone would not like this book for that reason.
There are two more books to this tale: Tatiana and Alexander and The Summer Garden. For those who have read the book: I loved the Kirov trips, Luga, St. What are you waiting for??? Besides some time to surrender over to this epic tale? It seems that people either love it or hate it. Anyway, if you do read it, I hope you love it as much as I do! Because this truly was the most intense and amazing experience. But I won't. Ice Cream by Sarah McLachlan http: The ice cream that I love.
Creamy, smooth. Tatiana is a naive and innocent girl who's almost 17 and lives in a cramped room in Communist Russia with her grandparents, parents, sister, and brother. One day she's told to go to the store to get some food because Germany is invading Russia.
She can't imagine them ever running out of food so she buys ice cream instead and waltzes around town. She runs into a soldier named Alexander and it's basically love at first sight. He helps her back to her home where they discover she's the sister of the girl he's been seeing. She convinces Alexander to keep seeing her sister and it's just this endless ANGST of them being in the same room but unable to look at each other.
They still see each other secretly, though. It's a little ridiculous how mean Tatiana's family was to her, but I guess it helps put her character in a vulnerable position so Alexander can get angry and defend her when her father beats her etc.
Then the siege of Leningrad really gets going and everyone starts dying of starvation. The best plot device for tension was definitely Alexander's "friend" Dimitri. And all of that is only the first bit of the book. The whole scope was seriously impressive. And even though I have no interest in ever going to Russia, I absolutely love stories set in historical Russia. I agree that the book could probably have a few hundred pages trimmed off, but the writing was fine and I was never bored.
But just a few complaints: It was just overkill. Pretty sure the angsty little drama llamas were causing more of their own problems than Hitler was for part of the story. I guess this just isn't my scene. Anyways, a few other comments: The end was super intense! This would make a seriously epic miniseries! View all 14 comments.
Dare I even say that this heart-wrenching and beautiful tale has taken over the top spot from Outlander? I know. I can't believe it myself. Both are 5 star books and both will stay on my all time f "Tania Both are 5 star books and both will stay on my all time favorites list. I honestly didn't think anything else could compare to Gabaldon's epic love affair of Jamie and Claire.
I thought wrong. So many people compare The Bronze Horseman to the infamous Outlander series when the only things that the books have in common is that they are lengthy historical fiction books featuring an epic romance.
Otherwise, these two stories have absolutely nothing in common. The greatest accomplishment of TBH is that the story never falters the way that Outlander tends to in parts. Every single moment is a recorded moment in time. A beautiful moment in time at that - whether the moment is painful, torturous, sensual, or endearing. Because I devoured every word, every page, this gives TBH the edge over Outlander which I admit to skimming in a few parts, even though I loved the book as a whole.
If you tried Outlander and found that you weren't a fan Gabaldon's heavy-handed way of writing, you might find that the style of writing in The Bronze Horseman works better for you. This is a much more fluid and less fussy style of written word. Tatiana and Alexander should have been doomed from the start. There is no way that two normal people could possibly survive impossible obstacle after impossible obstacle.
Everything from an unfortunate age difference, being promised to other people, war, starvation, death, fear of capture Please, God, Alexander prayed. Let her not love me anymore, but let her live. Alexander is a soldier in the Red Army, fighting for a country he does not belong to.
Tatiana is an innocent child, serving all those around her who would take advantage of the girl with a never ending supply of compassion. Be prepared for having your heart ripped out over and over.
This is not an easy story to read, but it is a story well worth following. The details of living among war are not pretty. You will read about people fighting through injuries and deaths of loved ones and holding on after going weeks on end without but a scrap of food. If you thought that the starvation was hard to read about in Laura Ingalls Wilder's The Long Winter , consider that instance to be a walk in the park compared to this one.
The strength of spirit from our main characters is incredible to watch. The sacrifices that people make for one another in the name of love is so incredibly emotional to watch. Under a black smoky sky, amid burning woods, Alexander carried Tatiana on his back six kilometers to the next station. This is not a one-sided relationship.
The care that Tatia gives her Shura in return is just as much of an effort. This is a tale of how the heart will fight for what it wants the most. I have nothing left to say. Just read this book.
There's no way for me to sell it other than to say that if you know how picky I am, this book must be extra special to earn such high praise from me.
If you love historical fiction, read it. If you love epic war-time love stories, read it. How can we have such a connection? Right from the start. We don't have a connection. We have communion. View all 69 comments. Re-reading and I will post a new review!!! View all 48 comments.
Terrible, una historia dura y maravillosa a la vez, hasta que entramos en villa felicidad. A partir de ese momento, la historia decae de forma alarmante. No matter what I write for this book it won't be enough. The bronze horseman is definitely a unique book.
The soldier turned away from her and walked toward it. Tatiana watched him. Even his walk was from another world; the step was too sure, the stride too long, yet somehow it all seemed right, looked right, felt right. It was lik No matter what I write for this book it won't be enough. It was like stumbling on a book you thought you had lost. Ah, yes, there it is.
Tatiana is a 17 year old Russian girl who has the misfortune to experience war. Along with war she also meets her only love , Alexander. He is the soldier who steals her heart from the first minute that she lays her eyes on him. Their love is skinny , innocent and strong. The first book takes us to the beginning of the war and when they meet each other.
We get to know how these two heroes will outlive the destructive and heartless war. It's very emotional to know how people were trying to survive during a blockade. I was never bored with the details ex their bread rations on the contrary I was curious to know more. It was amazing and heartbreaking. War is difficult but when you have a reason to live you can survive everything. In the second book we read how these two young people will try to find the happiness that they both deserve so much.
In the past they had been sabotaged but now nothing can stand against their love. People have to accept that they are meant for each other. Tatia always belonged to Alexander and he always belonged to her.
All the lies that were told in the first book will stop now. Apart from some tensed moments , the beginning is really smooth and so swoon worthy. I want to quote all their conversations. The way they love each other will tear you apart. I swear I dont think I have ever read a stronger love story than this one. All the other stories sound lame in comparison to this book. These two will fight everything and everyone to be together. Tania will always be his guardian angel , she will always save him.
I want to say more but I'll stop here.
The truth is that I'm such a slow reader and it took me a while to finish it but I never regret reading it. It's a heartwarming book that will take you over the moon. You will swoon , cry and even laugh with Tatia's jokes. I only warn you that there is an evil cliffhanger. I hate it! I cant read the second book right away , I need a break but I'll definitely read it.
I want to know the rest of the story. View all 55 comments. I just have no accurate words to describe how I'm feeling right now after reading this book. Saying I adored this book is not really enough.
It was such a surprise for me, such an emotional and heart-breaking read, a complete roller-coaster of all existing human emotions. I know who I am, she thought, taking his hand and turning to the altar.
Time just froze for me while I read this book. Reality seemed to stop existing for me because all I could think about was what will Tatia and Shura have to go through next. I just needed to read more, and how not to when you get right into Russia at time of war, while the city where the main characters live gets surrounded by an enemy who will not let them get out of it, who will not let food get inside it, a city where bombs explode every single day right next to them You just can't help getting hooked as if your own life depends on it.
This read completely took the floor from under my feet, my heart was being squeezed so harshly that I just couldn't breath normally. I have cried, yes, but I have never felt so heart-broken and painfully aware of the characters and their actions.
This read will torture you, but at the same time it will give you such tender and lovely moments that you just can't help but keep reading. It was real, It was everlasting, it was everything I picture as ideal. The time and space might not have been the greatest, but that only made the romance stronger because despite everything the main characters went through their love for each other never stopped existing.
View all 39 comments. Alexander and Tatiana are, hands down, the greatest hero and heroine I've come across. Alexander is the usual gorgeous, possessive male but he has so much more; he is faithful and unconditionally honorable. And Tania is the strongest, sweetest, most selfless heroine I've ever come across. I'm head over heels in love with them both and I've never hurt more for any characters as I have for them.
The writing in this book is exquisite. The tragedy seems relentless, but it is war. Alexander and Tania's unyielding love for each other is like no other- rivaling even Romeo and Juliet.
I must admit to feeling like I was drowning in a sea of sadness most of the time while reading this, and just when I'd come up for air, another horrific event would pull me back under. It was not an easy read, but its strength and beauty pulled me forward. I was amazed. I was scared.
I was deeply saddened. I was mortified. But above all, I was hopeful On to book 2!
