    One thought on “The Bronze Horseman”

    1. WARNING: F-BOMB LADEN AND SPOILER RIDDEN RANT AHEAD. READER DISCRETION IS ADVISED. Jesus fucking rollerblading Christ. No. Fuck no. I can’t do it anymore. You wanna read a historical love story with imperfect main characters? Go read Karleen Koen’s Dark Angels. You wanna read a story about how fucked up Stalin and the Soviet Union were pre, during and post WWII? Go read The Gulag Archipelago 1918-1956. You wanna read an in-depth history of the European campaigns of WWII? Go read The Guns at [...]

    2. Seeing how highly rated “The Bronze Horseman” is, I guess I’ll be one of those very few who don’t care for this book and brace myself for negative backlash. Oh, well, I just can’t stop myself from writing this review.First of all, I am not sure why people love this story so much when there are so much better books/movies out there about: lovers separated by war (“Atonement”), surviving through a war (“Gone with the Wind”), Russia during its communist era (“Doctor Zhivago”), [...]

    3. 10++ bright shining stars!!Wow. WOW.WOW. !! This is themost intense and epic love story EVER told!! It's exquisitely written, achingly heart wrenching, deeply heart warming, and utterly beautiful, unforgettable and incomparable in every way!!!Quite simply, there is no other series like this.The author has a truly uncanny gift for really making youFEELeverything that her characters are going through. IFELTTania and Alexander fall in love, IFELTtheir longing, IFELTtheir desire,FELTtheir heartache, [...]

    4. This book was wonderful, intense, and quite frankly exhausting. It truly was a ride. I had some minor problems with this and I mean MINOR so I am giving it a 4.85 haha Those problems were pure maiden trope got slightly old and happiness was so closely related only to sex which got a little repetitive. I might/ probably will be doing a mini review on this~2017 update~ lowering the rating because the maiden trope mentioned earlier is more problematic than my naive self picked up on 3 years ago. It [...]

    5. I'm really quite confused.This book came very highly recommended. I picked it, along with a few others, from ' top 100 romance novels. It has been recommended to me many times over the years, from people on and from those I know in "real life". And it has an average rating of 4.40.While I didn't loathe the book - and enjoyed some parts - the truth is that more than half of these 600+ pages were excruciatingly boring.Simons takes some steps towards goodness, but then it is ruined by the prolonge [...]

    6. “At the start of war, on June 22, 1941, the day Alexander met Tatiana, there were three million civilians in Leningrad. When the Germans blockaded the city on September 8, 1941, there were two and a half million civilians in Leningrad. In the spring of 1942 a million people remained.”This is a historical romance that takes place during World War II in Leningrad, Russia, and even though the characters are fictional, the events are very, very real. I'm not going to lie; this was a really hard [...]

    7. The Bronze Horseman is one of my all-time favorites! I decided to re-read it, for probably the hundredth time, and it still moves me just as much as it did the first time. The story of Alexander and Tatiana is so beautifully told and gripping that I can never put it down once I start. To think, I nearly passed over this book because I don't usually read historical romances. That would have been a tragedy! Thank God, I finally gave it a shot after hearing so much praise for it. I really would hav [...]

    8. Full thoughts appear on my blog: whittynovels.wordpress/20The bottom line is that this book normalizes and promotes unhealthy and abusive interactions between a husband and a wife. Never once did Simons denounce any of Alexander’s actions as abusive, violent, or wrong; instead, Tatiana is constantly apologizing for upsetting his husband. It’s sold as a love story, but the main character is only given this love when she’s behaving like a perfect doll for her husband, following his commands, [...]

    9. ❝Good-bye, my moonsong and my breath, my white nights and golden days, my fresh water and my fire. Good-bye, and may you find a better life, find comfort again and your breathless smile, and when your beloved face lights up once more at the Western sunrise, be sure what I felt for you was not in vain. Good-bye, and have faith, my Tatiana.❞Reread (04/13/2017): God, I love this book so much. It's far from perfect but this book and these characters are just so near and dear to my heart. It's be [...]

    10. One of the best books I've ever read, so heart wrenching but that's the beauty of it. Tatiana and Alexander's story was truly memorable and amazing.

    11. Oh what fresh hell. I thought this book would never, ever end. I never knew how important perfect white teeth could be, that there was such a thing as a slight case of TB, that this many mentions of blueberries could be squeezed into a single book, or that I could ever get bored with/by sex. But these things have all been achieved by Bronze Horseman. She even manages to throw in some scurvy.The description in this book is endless. Buses, walks, dinners, ice cream, cabbage, love session, buses, w [...]

    12. 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? This. Right here. Boom. Read it, or miss out on the best hero/heroine combo EVERRRRRRRRRR!*lyrics by Bradi*Sung by Tarryn

    13. 1.5 stars. And that .5 is for the historical elements which I found to be the redeeming quality of this book. I SUFFERED through 800 pages (which were unnecessarily drawn out) for nearly a MONTH reading this book with flat characters, a horribly toxic relationship, and a plot that goes in circles. It's been a while since a book has made me this angry. A lengthy video review will be upcoming on my channel. OMFG.

    14. ♥ 5 BREATHLESSLY EPIC AND MEMORABLE STARS. ♥"Love is," she repeated slowly, "when he is hungry and you feed him. Love is knowing when he is hungry.""Love is, to be loved," said Alexander, "in return."The Bronze Horseman is probably the most EPIC love story I've ever read. There just aren't any words adequate enough to describe how much I loved this book! 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 s [...]

    15. "He wanted to explain but felt shattered. He was shattered." - Yes, I know, Alexander. Me, too. Review to follow when I feel less shattered. On to Book 2!! ^_^ 12+ Hours later….5+ Stars!!! - Also reviewed at:Lady Jayne's Reading DenOkay, I figure there is NO WAY I can ever do this book justice, so, I just need to pour out this “review” now, and hopefully in the release of my swirling thoughts and emotions I’m not too nonsensical. Firstly, I would like to THANK my GRs friends, Viola and Q [...]

    16. 5 stars is not enough!This was probably the most beautiful, heart stopping, tragically EPIC love stories I’ve ever read. EVER. Talk about FEELING when you read I felt EVERYTHING reading this story. It took me days to complete, which isn’t my norm, and I was a wreck the entire time. It consumed me. Utterly and completely consumed me. I can’t begin to express how wonderful this book was. I’m not even going to attempt to summarize the story. This story is impossible to review properly. No m [...]

    17. 3.5 stars. This is one of the hardest reviews I’ve ever tried to write because I really can’t deny that I was infuriated with the characters for most of the book… but every time I tried to set the book aside I’d find myself picking it up again a few minutes later. I was so completely wrapped up in the story and honestly couldn’t put this down! I don’t remember the last time I was so engrossed in a book, so I’m going to chalk up my strong reactions to the story as a good thing becau [...]

    18. "Taniayou and I had only one moment" said Alexander, "A single moment in time, in your time and mine instant, when another life could have still been possible."This might very well be the most exquisitely-written blend of historical fiction and romance in one book that I have ever read. 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 favorites list. [...]

    19. AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING REVIEW TO COME <3 I'm so jealous, I saw that many of my friends were reading one of the most amazing books I have ever read and I couldn't resist!! Re-reading and I will post a new review!!!

    20. No matter what I write for this book it won't be enough. The bronze horseman is definitely a unique book. Tatiana's and Alexander's love story will take you into an emotional rollercoaster but I dont think that you will regret what you read,at least I didn’t.“A bus came. 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 [...]

    21. SUBLIME. ❤️EXTRAORDINARIA. EXCEPCIONAL. GLORIOSA. GRANDIOSA. MARAVILLOSA. BELLÍSIMA. INOLVIDABLE. Todas las estrellas son pocas. Todas las palabras son insuficientes. Todos mis sentimientos son indescriptibles.Y Tatiana Ay, Tatiana, Tatiana, Tatiana. El alma, el corazón, la esencia de la historia. Qué maravillosa protagonista. ❤️

    22. THIS REVIEW CONTAINS MINOR SPOILERS -mature content reader discretion is advised. 5 STARS out of 5Genre: Romance“Tania,” he whispered passionately, “you are naked and underneath me!” As if he could not believe it himself. “Alexander,” she said, still trembling, “you are naked and above me.” She felt him rubbing against her. They kissed. “I can’t believe it,” he said, his breath shallow. “I didn’t think this day would ever come.” He paused and then whispered, “Yet I [...]

    23. NEVER IN MY WILDEST DREAMS COULD I HAVE IMAGINED HOW THIS BOOK WOULD CHANGE MEI just have no accurate words to describe how I'm feeling right now after reading this book. I had NO IDEA what I was getting into when I started it, I just knew everybody who read it adored it so I was almost certain I would probably be feeling the same way. 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 existin [...]

    24. [2.5 Stars] I think my updates pretty much sum up my feelings for this book, but let me go into a little bit more detail here. I'm going to begin with the things I liked: the world building for the historical setting, pretty much any of the parts about Tatiana and her family dealing with the hardships of war, and the writing. I loved getting to know this Russia, seeing the struggles of Tatiana's family and everyone else in Leningrad, and it was just overall really interesting being thrust into t [...]

    25. UNBELIEVABLE DEAL! Save 78%! Purchase -> amzn/T364Zi5/31/2014~~~~~~~~~~A.M.A.Z.I.N.G Every once in awhile a book enters our life that changes the way we think and feel.Reading this book but felt like watching a WW2 documentary that included a love story. The Bronze Horseman could be categorized as a realistic historical fiction. The whole scenario felt real. When the characters suffered I suffered along with them in my everyday life. Watching this family struggle to survive in Russia during t [...]

    26. BREATHTAKING!It's hard to write a complete review when I'm not yet finished with trilogy, but I will say that I LOVED this book!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 charac [...]

    27. One day, Tatiana's childhood life changes forever and it's not the beginning of the War that I'm talking about. It's the moment she was sitting on a bench in the sunshine eating ice cream, yesat moment, the moment she saw Shura for the first time and her life would never be the same. Okay, I'm sure you've seen it all before and you've maybe read a few reviews or at least a comment here or thereI think it's impossible to not have heard of this book somewhere. And you've thought, hmmmmmance during [...]

    28. NOTE: I have not read this book. I will never read this book. 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. There is no way to misconstrue these passages. The cover of this book proudly boasts that it's a love story and none of what I have seen has even a modicum of romance. What I've seen has left me feeling sick. TW: rape, toxic relationships, mental and physical abuse, and probably much moretwitte [...]

    29. ★★★★★ 5 Stars ★★★★★I was absolutely consumed by this series, for 8 straight days, I lived and breathed these characters and devoured their epic, but also tragic and heartbreaking story. I can't remember the last time I felt so connected to a story. This book, in fact all three books, are not for everyone. This is a forbidden and angsty read, with many moments that will make you feel many sad and angry feelings, but the story is contrasted with some of the most beautiful and w [...]

    30. You want me review this??? Are you kidding me? How the hell do you review a book like The Bronze Horseman?!I read this book until 2.45am last night. I said to myself, 'I'll read until I finish this book and then I'll sleep.'So I read until I finished. And I cried. And I tossed and turned and I couldn't help starting book two! And I read that until 4.30am!And then I dreamt about Alexander and Tatiana. And then I woke up at 7am (On a Sunday!!) and couldn't sleep, so I read again. And now it's 11am [...]
