Audiobook. Mary Susan's recommendation of Rasputin's Daughter was a bit less enthusiastic than for his book The Kitchen Boy, but I found it equally intriguing. It was really a good book to hear; in particular, I enjoyed hearing the correct pronunciation of all those Russian names. I was moved to pick up a biography of Rasputin in our library by Brian Moynahan which I suspect Robert Alexander used in writing his book. One day I read about the heresies of that day, especially the khlysta, and the next day heard a similar description as part of the novel. What an amazing story, and what a character he was.
