How a book about a fascinating event in a fascinating time can be so boring is beyond me. Poor narrator doesn't help.Repeating same info over and over doesn't help. The worst thing is Nelipas habit of never describing an event from start to finish. Sometimes she starts in the middle some times at the end of the event. I wanted to scream. I take exception to the title of this book. The aristocracy in Russia work long and hard to cause their downfall ,so I don't think we can blame Rasputin. Miss Nelipas should listen to Great Courses RUSSIAN HISTORY . I don't go along with this white washing of Rasputin .I'm sure most of the tales about him were grossly exaggerated, as is true of other bad guys in history, like the Borges and the Claudians. Still he probably was no saint.
