Catherine the Great By Robert K. Massie

I’ve never been one to read weighty biographies, but after cracking this one, I’m a convert. It helps that this particular story reads like the most literary of novels. The pages whip past as you absorb Catherine’s childhood with her cold, ambitious mother, her marriage to the strangest of princes, her voracious and intelligent mind, and her adjustment to royal life and ascension to power. I’ve yet to meet a character like this in a novel.
