Book Review: The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons


The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons was my November Book Club read that I only just finished this month, yep 2 months later which was a big fat fail on the homework there! I honesty think I read it so slowly because I didn't want it to end - yep it was that good. I went to the Book Club meet up and had to cover my ears so I didn't hear the ending but at least I got a heads up on all the sex scenes that were coming up!

The Bronze Horseman is written in 1941 wartime when Hitler invades Russia,  it shows the cold harshness of the war and how the rations killed so many people through starvation. It is also one beautiful love story about unattainable love, between the innocent Tatiana and the handsome soldier Alexander. It is a powerful love story with just the right about of sex, romance, desire, more sex, to keep you reading it with a beating heart and fighting off the tears all the way to the end.

This book is a sequel with a few more books to read in the series. There are also rumours of it being turned into a movie.

I would recommend this book to everyone, not just the romantics, but also the cynics because this book will  move you I guarantee, its a very powerful read. I give this book 5 stars - sorry Johnny I'd rather a date with Alexander than you this time!

Jarrah Jungle's Star Rating:
1 Bad - I'd rather eat brussel sprouts topped with anchovies than read this again
2 Not Good - I'd rather watch re-runs of Neighbours than read this again
3 Ok - I'm sitting on the fence - its not great but not terrible either
4 Good - I'd pass up a pack of tim tams for this read
5 Great - I'd pass up a date with Johnny Depp for this read

  1. I was wondering whether you would be happy to put up a link in my brand new monthly series called “Books You Love”. The idea is for people to link up posts about a book they loved – it doesn’t have to be one they just posted about. It could be an old fave. I am hoping we will end up with a nice collection of books that can go on our reading lists. Here is the link Books You Loved May Edition
