The Bronze Horseman--Movie

April 13, 2013 update on the progress of the film (and our thoughts) here.

Now that you have read the book, how would you feel about it being made into a movie?  Do you think it would work being condensed to two hours?  Should it be an HBO miniseries?  Are there particular scenes and personality traits that you feel HAVE to be included?  What songs remind you of T & A?


The Bronze Horseman--Book Review

Rating: 5
April 3, 2013 update on the progress of the film (and our thoughts) here.

Hello Everyone!  Our first book review and what a book to kick us off! I realize there is so much to discuss regarding this book, so to keep things semi organized, I have brought our list of questions.  Once we have answered those, we can move onto other questions you may have (which I hope you do!) and jump from topic to topic.

Here are some pictures to enjoy and bring this story more to life.  

This is the statue of The Bronze Horseman that sits inside the city of St. Petersburg, as a monument to Peter the Great.  As Paullina mentions in the book, the statue was surrounded by sand bags to protect it during the 900 day siege of Leningrad.  It is in Senatskaia Square facing the Neva River and surrounded by the the civil and religious buildings of former Russia and St. Isaac's Cathedral.
