The Czar’s Madman by Jaan Kross

Czar's Madman

This is a fictionalized account of nobleman’s imprisonment under Czar Alexander I, due to an honest criticism of the regime.  Unfortunately, either the translation is just plain terrible, or the story itself is lacking.  At halfway through the book, I decided to abandon it.  Life it too short and there are too many good books out there to continue with tedium.
