    Description

    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. Their world is turned upside down when Hitler's armies attack Russia and begin their unstoppable blitz to Leningrad.

    Yet there is light in the darkness. Tatiana meets Alexander, a brave young officer in the Red Army. Strong and self-confident yet guarding a mysterious and troubled past, he is drawn to Tatiana - and she to him. Starvation, desperation, and fear soon grip their city during the terrible winter of the merciless German siege. Tatiana and Alexander's impossible love threatens to tear the Metanova family apart and expose the dangerous secret Alexander so carefully protects - a secret as devastating as the war itself - as the lovers are swept up in the brutal tides that will change the world and their lives forever.

    Choix de voix trop décevant

    Pourquoi une voix masculine alors que le personnage principale est une jeune fille. Et quelle voix, une imitation de la voix d’une gosse insupportable. Je suis trop déçue une fois de plus

    Please give us the other two books in the series!!

    I absolutely love this story I fell in love with it from the first chapter Paulina is an amazing writer. It would be an honor for me to listen to the other two books read by this narrator also, James Langton did a marvelous job. His voice brought all the characters alive couldn't stop listening. Please once again the next two books of the trilogy would be wonderful. No one should miss listening to this love story. My Grandfathers were in WWll on the US side and I throughly enjoy these stories, they tell how everyone suffered so much and all is for freedom to live and love under God. Thank You!

    Relieved when it ended

    The story in the first half of this book was fairly good. I can not say that any of the characters were likable-most were actually annoying. But I was able to chalk that up to their difficult life circumstances. The narration made things tougher to get through - the females sounded like cartoon characters and Alexander sounded like a Scotsman ... seriously? An American posing as a Russian that sounds like a Scotsman? THEN, a little over halfway through the book, it seemed we switched authors. Dialogue became silly and the sex scenes were so frequent and unromantic it became maddening (not in a good way). I was actually becoming angry for wasting my time listening to this foolishness and decided to abandon the book. But...as I do not like to give up on a book no matter how little enjoyment I am receiving from it, I resumed listening after a couple of days. The ending was not quite as bad, although there was a disgusting scene where Alexander, lying on what could have been his death bed , has Tatiana shove her bear breast in his face - ENOUGH ALREADY!!!
    I was very disappointed in this book, actually hated the unnecessary and unpleasant sex scenes which took up probably a third of the narrative, and disliked the characters. I can't recall ever being so relieved at the conclusion of a book.
    Sadly, I could not recommend this book nor will I read other books by this author.

    MOST BEAUTIFUL LOVE STORY EVER!!

    Would you listen to The Bronze Horseman again? Why?

    YES!! A THOUSAND TIMES YES!! I'll probably play it out till it breaks!!

    What about James Langton’s performance did you like?

    This story was released a few months ago by a different narrator and he absolutely ruined the story! I don't know why but it was re-done by James Langton and I'm so grateful!!! He did Fabulous! Awesome! Wonderful!! I'll never forget it!! I wanna kiss him!! He brought the best story I've ever read alive like no one else could!!

    Any additional comments?

    So... I read this book like 3 years ago and since then I've read it at least 4 more times. I was never going to review it. Not because I didn't like it but because I'm scared of the inadequacy of my words. There are just no words. Do you hear me? NO. WORDS. That can explain to you the AWESOME EPICNESS that is The Bronze Horseman.

    I use the word awesome because what it means...

    adjective1.causing or inducing awe; inspiring an overwhelming feeling of reverence of admiration...

    That's just an inch of the feelings you get when you read the story of Tatiana and Alexander. For me it was this all consuming reverence that made me feel like my heart was being clutched in someone's fist.

    It was heartbreak and joy.
    Agony and happiness.
    Desolation and reparation.
    Grief and love.
    It was sorrow and adoration.
    Brutality and tenderness.
    It was hunger and it was fulfillment.
    It was regret and it was devotion.

    It's my true love. Like the one person who no matter where they are, or who came before or after, it will ALWAYS be that person. Well for me The Bronze Horseman is incomparable.

    I keep it on my night stand always. Whenever I miss them, I just flip it open and no matter where it falls I am sure to be sucked right back in to the beautiful tragedy of Tatiana and Alexander. It's filled with war that will leave you heartsick and a love so shattering it will leave you breathless. Don't take my inadequate words for it. Read it. I promise you. You'll never find another book thats written in such elegant poetic prose.

    FYI: For the full impact of this story I'd suggest reading it first then doing to audio version :)

    I didn't read enough reviews

    I glanced down the reviews and saw nothing but 5 stars so I decided to give this new author a try. After trying to listen through the second chapter I went back to the reviews and scrolled further down and ....ahh haaa! Like minded people!! I can't remember reading about a more insipid, annoying, vapid character than Tatianna-seriously-she lives with her grandfather who fought in WWI and when news comes that Germany has invaded Russia she thinks it's a lovely Spring day and a good time to buy ice cream? When she is given all of the family's money she thinks it's a good idea to put on her best dress and heels to go shopping? Because seeing all the shops empty of food and of the ones still open having long lines of people streaming from them, knowing the banks have closed doesn't cause her to think maybe something important is happening? I don't know which is more ridiculous-her father for giving her all of the family's money or a seventeen year old who doesn't understand the significance of Russia being invaded by Germany. Originally, the narrator was fine but as the story meandered into the absurd he began to grate on my nerves. What a shame-I thought the subject, setting and time had promise. Apparently there are a lot of sex scenes-I never made it to them-I'm thankful for small favors-

    15 hours too long

    This starts out as historical fiction for the first half that I quite enjoyed and ends up as an annoying sappy love story. Very disappointing. I'm not a prude but the detailed sex scenes were overkill and the constant bickering between Tatiana and Alexander get on the nerves fast!! Their relationship was borderline abusive, he wouldn't allow her to do things or see people she wanted, when he looked at her she HAD to look at him, told her what to wear, ugh it went on and on like that. With 9 hours left I just couldn't listen anymore. The narrator was good but used a Scottish accent for his American character living in Russia. I wouldn't waste a credit on this and cannot understand all the rave reviews. Pass on this one!!!

    Disappointed.

    For starters, the narrarator confused me by having the character of Alexander speak with a Scottish brogue. Then his female voices were aweful. The story was about 20 chapters too long with repetitive dialogue and so much unnecessary sexual content. We get it, they had a lot of sex. I don't have to know every detail of the million times they did. And I'm sorry, but this story was not believable in anyway, I kept listening hoping it would improve and it did not. I definitely will not be listening to the other 2 of this series, I don't think I could take it!

    Really??

    I'm not even half way through this story and I'm just dismayed at the cliches, at the stereotypes, and the poor characterizations. All the wonderful reviews and yet I cannot go on. I just cannot see this evolving into anything close to "A Gentleman in Moscow" by Amor Towles, or "Saphire Skies" by Belinda Alexandra, or even "Lilac Girls" by Martha Hall Kelly, and so many more that didn't heavily rely on the above mentioned stereotypes, all while portraying the same in much better taste - with horror and dismay. The only difference is the ex-patriots from other countries vaguely referred to. As far as I can see the romance is a bit shmalzy and over done, and I haven't even gotten to the good parts yet.

    There are SO MANY other excellent WWII books - oh my gosh I didn't mention "The Firebird" either - that are about Russia, that this tawdry tale cannot hold a candle to.

    The narrator apparently is a second choice, yet... Why have a man try and portray a woman's (girl's lets face it) story? He was not a good choice for this book.

    It is going back ASAP. I have other books to hear!

    Started with a bang and ground slowly to a halt

    The first half of the book was exciting and fact-filled about the Siege of Leningrad. Then half way through the book, there was about an hour and a half of just arguing between the two characters of the story. Why? Why? Why? It was soooo boring. I don't know that I can finish this book.

    interessant., aber....

    Das Buch gefiel mir mal recht gut, mal überhaupt nicht. Ich mochte den Anfang sehr gerne; das Leben der Famiie in Leningrad wird anschaulich und einfühlsam beschrieben. Die Sachzwänge bezüglich der extrem schleppenden Liebesgeschichte ging mir hingegen bald auf die Nerven. Es gibt ungünstige Umstände, die alles erschweren bzw. eigentlich verhindern, klar, aber die Lösungsansätze erscheinen mir wenig zielführend. Das Ganze wirkt auf mich auch unglaublich konstruiert von der Autorin - die Faktoren (Dimitri und Dascha), die die Liebe verhindern. Meine Güte, was winden sich die beiden außerdem in selbsgezimmerten moralischen Ansprüchen - und verheddern sich über ewig lange Passagen. Zumal die Mitmenschen, auf die diese vermeintlichen Rücksichten genommen werden, sich alles andere als hochanständig verhalten. Der ewige rote Faden bleibt jedoch die blütenreine Gutmenschlichkeit Tatjanas - es hätte auch etwas weniger dick aufgetragen werden können. Noch schlimmer wurde es dann, als die Liebe endlich ausgelebt werden konnte - man ist bei jedem zweiten Beischlaf dabei. Sicherlich keine Seltenheit in amerikanischen Büchern und von vielen bewusst gewählt. Für mich stand es in seiner Beliebigkeit im krassen Gegensatz zum sonst wirklich interessanten historischen Rahmen.
    Wahrscheinlich hätte mir das Buch in einer gekürzten Version etwas besser gefallen. ich hatte häufig den Eindruck, dass die gesamte Handlung extrem ausgewalzt und mit Wiederholungen gespickt wurde.
    Zum Ende bzw. im dritten Teil wurde es etwas spannender.
    Der Sprecher war für mich angenehm zu hören. Drei Sterne gebe ich aus dem Grund, dass das Nachsprechen der Frauenstimmen grausam klang und leider dauernd vorkam. Ich konnte die weiblichen Gesprächsbeiträge kaum ernst nehmen, es klang für mich absolut unüberzeugend.
    Ich bereue jedoch nicht, das Buch gehört zu haben. Ich nehme viele interessante Eindrücke mit.

    Eine Kriegs- und Liebesgeschichte wie keine andere, hat mich sehr berührt. Sehr vielseitiger Sprecher. Fortsetzung?!

    Mein absolutes Lieblingsbuch <3

    Die ersten zwei Teile der Bronze Horseman Reihe sind meine absoluten Lieblingsbücher schon seit meiner Jugend. Sie begleiten mich schon viele Jahre und ich lese sie jedes Jahr mindestens einmal. Leider gibt es die Bücher hier bei Audible nicht auf Deutsch also hab ich sie mir auf Englisch gekauft. Der Sprecher war am Anfang etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig aber er hat eine klare Aussprache so konnte ich ihn gut verstehen. Ein paar Wörter waren mir fremd aber da ich das Hörbuch auswendig kenne war das egal. Es ist die schönste und tragischste Liebesgeschichte die ich kenne. Selbst nach sicher über 20 Mal lesen berührt mich diese Geschichte jedesmal aufs neue. Ich kann die erste zwei Teile uneingeschränkt weiter empfehlen. Der dritte Teil hat mir nicht gefallen ich bin nicht über die ersten Kapitel hinaus gekommen.
