Es muy triste lleno de desgracias pero al final todo tiene su recompensa. Lo importante para mí es la historia. Gracias al interés que despertó en mi la historia del libro me he documentado de parte de la historia rusa. Lo recomiendo.
super romantisch. Eine wunderschöne Geschichte! unbedingt muss man lesen.wunderschön und geschmackvoll geschrieben.Das beste was Danielle Steel je geschrieben hat!
I hate to admit it, but I like Danielle Steel. Sure, we can criticize her prose which can be downright silly but no one can argue the fact that she is a professional when it comes to story-telling. Her novels read like epic screenplays and readers are taken to worlds far away with stories about characters which are moving and keep the pages turning. I have read only 5 of Ms. Steel's novels but "Zoya," to date, is the best. "Zoya" is the story of a Russian girl who flees her Russian homeland with her grandmother during the revoloution. She goes to Paris where her dreams of being a dancer are fulfilled and romance enters her life. The novel moves from Paris to New York where we are allowed to watch Zoya for 80 years. Ms. Steel brings to life all the feelings of Russia and romance eventhough, as we said, they may not be articulated well. This reader felt all the tears, laughter and joy Zoya experienced throughout her lifetime. Novels can either teach or entertain - so what if there is no lesson to be learned from the novels Danielle Steel writes? I can't think of too many people who can come up with stories like she can - so hats off to Ms. Steel!
I would like to thank Ms Danielle Steel for this wonderful book. I read it in 2 days. I've read many books by this author, but this one without a doubt is the best! I am from Russia myself and was shocked by the fact how much an American author knows about Russian history. Are the events described in the book true? In Russian schools in my schooling time (1979-89) they tought us that it was great that Revolution happened; that everyone should be equal and that it was good that Tsar Romanov had to give up his royalty and was killed. We belived them at the time. Now I know how hard it was for the royal family and that they were real people too and had to go throught a lot. I cryed through the whole book. Zoya's life went through my eyes like I was there with her. This book is really wonderful.
This was the first book I read by Danielle Steel.I am not really a reader, because I don't have much time, but I read this book in 2 days. I couldn't put it down. I am intrigued by the story of the Romanov's anyway, but this book put the reader right in the middle of the royal family, in a way that made me feel one with Zoya. I cried when she cried, I rejoiced in her triumph. What a great character and a courageous woman! She is the character that anyone can admire.The book was well written with exquisite description of each detail in the lives of the characters. From Russia, to Paris, to New York and Maine, the settings were perfect (I know because I've been to all of these places). Reading the book was like going on a long vacation. Thank you, Danielle Steel.
I am a college student with a lot of things to read. While on my winter break from school I read this novel. I became interested in reading it when I saw the made for television movie. I find most of the Danielle Steele books I read are very hard to get interested in. This would probably have been the case for "Zoya" if I didn't have a feel for the story line. I loved all of the details in the novel. I felt as if I knew all of the characters. I thought that it was very sad at many times and that maybe it could have been a little better if she(Zoya) did not fall in love so quickly, but maybe that was part of the inspiration of the novel. Zoya overcame MANY obsticals and still led a very happy life.
This book put me where I have wanted to go for a long time. In the midst of the Royal Family the Romanovs. While reading this book I was a part of events unfolding throughout the story. This book is fascinating in every way. I have always been interested in the story of the Romanovs and am even more so after reading this book. The reader feels very close to Zoya and her royal cousins, going through all their heartaches and joys with them. Start this book and you won't be able to put it down! I finished this book feeling as though I had experienced a major part of history personally. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has a taste for compelling reading.
From the beginning of the Russian Revolution in 1917 to Zoya finally going back to Lavadia with her granddaughter in 1975, you are with Zoya during her trials and joys. She will compell you to read more of Steel's masterpieces. Zoya is a down-to-earth woman with real problems. She is a strong and very inspirational woman. Zoya is down on her luck a couple of times, but always finds the insentive to pull through it and survive. Whether it was for her love of Clayton, her children, or her store, you can count on Zoya to find some way to beat the odds, more than once. Definatley a "must-read."
