I have read a number of books on Rasputin because he was such an interesting story and indeed had such an impact on Russian history. This book sheds more light on the mystery of the man and the real mystery surrounding his murder. This book focuses on Prince Felix Youssoupov who it is believed was most instrumental in that murder. It was interesting to learn more about this man and I was amazed at the wealth he commanded, and of course lost in the revolution. The murder itself still by and large remains unclear in detail. Not much more is offered in this book as Youssoupov's version though probably close to the most accurate has to be measured against his motives in relaying it. The actual truth we will probably never known. One thing that comes clearly into focus is that Rasputin did not really seem to control as much influence in governmental affairs as has been widely believed. The Czarina on the other had certainly did and probably contributed most to the downfall of the Romanov dynasty. ( )

2948 The Man Who Killed Rasputin: Prince Felix Yousoupov and the Murder That Helped Bring Down the Russian Empire, by Greg King (read 22 Jan 1997) This book does a workman-like job telling of Felix Yousoupov, the principal assassin. What happened is not certain, but the traditional account is close to true. Felix' life in exile is related--he lived till 27 Sept 1967. ( )
