Descrição

Award-winning author Carolyn Meyer introduces readers to the unforgettable Anastasia Romanov, whose idyllic life is forever changed with the coming of World War I.

In this fictionalized journal, Anastasia Romanov lives again. Through her eyes, we witness the day-to-day splendor the czar's family experienced before the onslaught of the Russian Revolution. However, one senses also that crowding the outskirts of Anastasia's ornate diary are hundreds of thousands of teeming serfs, just beginning to percolate.

    Historical fiction, the diary of Grand Duchess Anastasia, describing the way her family lived and the events leading up to the Revolution. A great series for young girls!One feature of the Royal Diaries series is once the story is finished, the author includes a section which is only facts: pictures/portraits of the main characters, family trees, a "What life was like in (insert name) lived" to help the reader distinguish between what we know about the characters, what we assume from artifacts found, and what the author made up to help the story along.

    This is a great series for middle grades to get a taste of historical fiction and to maybe become interested in history. The diary format is usually easy to read and gives information in small doses with a personal feel to them. This one seemed choppier than others I had read in the series. I have read other fiction and non-fiction books about the Romanovs so I was familiar with the story. I'm not certain that someone completely unfamiliar with the story would have been able to follow the storyline. The epilogue did wrap things up nicely and summarize the events and legends though.

    I know this is a series for young girls, but as someone with a strong interest in Russian history and in the last of the Romanovs, this book seemed very...tepid. The character of Anastasia just never really came alive, and the circumstances around the royal family is not made very interesting. Compared to Karen Lasky's fictional diary of Marie Antoinette, I would say this one is a dude.

    Good Book. An insightful story that brings her to life and gives one an idea what it was like to have been there.

    This tells the story of Anastasia, the youngest daughter of Tsar Nicholas II and Alexandra of Russia. It is told in diary format and starts in January 1914. At the beginning of the book, Anastasia is a carefree rich 12-year old, with not too much to worry about. As time goes on, her diary covers Rasputin, World War I, and her family's imprisonment. There is then an epilogue to cover the end of her story and a historical note that, in a short version, covers much of Russia's historyI really enjoyed this YA telling of the Romanovs' story from Anastasia's point of view. It's definitely an interesting way, especially for someone young, to learn about that history.

    I really liked this book more than the last one I read in the series, though I could definitely tell this book was written for a younger audience, which once again, made me wish I had known about these books when I was in the proper age group, but such is life. The story line is good, I connected with Anastasia and her family and there was a part of me that grew upset during the epilogue even though I knew it was coming. I learned a lot as well. It was worth the read. 4.5 out of 5 stars.

    I just read this book yesterday.I cried in it. it is one of the most saddest stories.And it is a true story.If you do research you can learn more of what happened to the ROMANOV FAMILY. I recommend this book if you do good with really sad stories but if you don't I wouldn't read it. SPOILER ALERT The massacre of the ROMANOV FAMILY was very tragic!!!!!!!!!!!!! Some people thing that Anastasia and Marie or Alexie survived the massacre but I don't believe they did.If you have this book called Days that shook the world you can read about the ROMANOV family.In that book they believe that Anastasia may have lived. But if you do alot of research it's clear that they all died!

    Grades 6-8Written from Anastasia’s perspective through her journal entries, we get a look at what the last years of her life might have been like. It gives us a good look at the struggles of a country and family during a war; however at many times I was bored with the story. In some ways we see that the royal family was not all that different from a normal family, having to study and take care of family. However they still were royalty and had servants and a father that was gone a lot because of the war. The story was more interesting when we start to see the war affect the family more closely and they have to struggle and eventually leave. I felt the best parts of the book were the Epilogue and Life in Russia in 1914. There is information about the Romanov family, their family tree, photographs, as well as what happen to them from after they leave Tobolsk.

    I used to love all of the Royal Diaries when I was about twelve and couldn't get enough of them. This one, about the mysterious Anastasia Romanov before her disappearance, is a great way to learn about the famous Russian family. It contains little-known and fascinating historical detail. (But beware believing everything as fact - it IS fiction, after all).However, if you are not interested in the Romanov's, you are unlikely to find this book exactly thrilling. Written as a diary, the book spends pages and pages of the main character talking about trivial, tedious matters like clothes and current events.This book is average reading quality... not awful, but not amazing, either.

    Ever since I saw the cartoon movie, "Anastasia", I have been obsessed with learning about the Romanov family, and this book was fantastic for that!As I've come to expect from all the Royal Diaries books, "Anastasia: The Last Grand Duchess" was full of interesting details and characters from the tragic story of the family of Russia's last tsar.Some of my favorite elements were the family's holiday traditions, Anastasia's tribulations with her sisters (and their OTMA plays), as well as the creepy presence of the sinister Father Grigory, or as he is better known, Rasputin.As always in this series, there is a section in the back with photos, family trees, and other historical background to add to the diary.Highly recommended!

    Reviewed April 2001 As far as I can tell this diary is historically accurate - I enjoyed meeting Anastasia's family and what her last years must have been like. You think you have a lot of knowledge about a person or event and then you read something like this that fills in the details and makes the people real. Who cares if her maid was a personal friend named Eva of if she loved to eat salmon, what matters most are the events in her life. We know that the women did have the family jewels sewn into their dresses and in this diary, the girls sit down and sew them into the clothing. I really enjoyed hearing about Rasputin and his influence over the royal family. Also the overview at the end of the book which tells the true historical opinion of the Tsar and his ruling style is very interesting. This book is different from the other young adult books, so far in that it has many actual photos inside. These type of books make good reading on vacation...this time in San Francisco for Caspian's birthday. 8-2001
