    Henri Troyat once again tells us the story of a Russian Tsar the enigmatic Ivan the Terrible Ivan the Terrible 1539 1584 lost his parents when he was a small kid and had to learn how to survive in a world made of intrigues, violence and cruelty After he became tsar at the age of 17, he soon showed a very contrasted personality, prone to not only violence and debauchery but also extreme mysticism and devotion to god He probably convinced himself at some stage that, his right to rule coming from G [...]

    Despite the rather upsetting descriptions of the gory ways Ivan chose to torture his victims, this book provides a great deal of helpful insight into his mindset, including letters he sent to his ambassadors and advisers His twisted relationship with the orthodox church and his paranoia are also investigated in depth He was supposedly very pious and he occasionally spent weeks in remote monasteries praying However, he never felt the slightest compunctions about brutally torturing and murdering t [...]

    This book tells of events that happened almost five hundred years ago, but Troyat s writing is alive And boy Ivan was one sick puppy Troyat does not shy away from highlighting the lurid details, but neither is he sensationalistic For me the most memorable story was when a messenger rushed in to give Ivan some important news, and Ivan slammed his spear into the poor messenger s foot, literally pinning him into the ground In fact, Ivan frequently killed and maimed people with his own hand, often o [...]

    I ve been spoiled by so many better biographies The author repeatedly tells us what historical figures were thinking without providing any first person resources I stuck with this book way longer than I should have because I wanted to learn about this fascinating historical figure but I just couldn t get past the writing style.

    IVAN THE TERRIBLE trans 1984 Henri TroyatTroyat was a prolific writer, issuing over one hundred books Most of these were biographies, especially of famous French and Russian writers In this work, he managed to include almost everything he could learn about Ivan IV, later known as The Terrible The life of Ivan 1530 1584 is surrounded by legends, many of which have been passed down from generation to generation and are now accepted as fact Troyat attempts to break through many of these anecdotal i [...]

    Cartea Ivan cel Groaznic de Henri Troyat este o incursiune n via a uneia dintre personalit ile istorice cele mai tulbur toare ale secolului al XVI lea, i anume arul Ivan al IV lea al Rusiei, supranumit nc de pe vremea sa drept Ivan cel Groaznic Aceast minu ioas biografie a unui personaj aflat la limita dintre legend , mit i realitate red cititorilor pasiona i de istorie i nu numai o fa et mai pu in cunoscut a arului Pe l ng prezentarea luptelor, a nfr ngerilor i a cuceririlor lui Ivan cel Groazn [...]

    This biography of Ivan the Terrible is an absolutely fascinating read It chronicles the mind boggling reign of literally a sadistic madman and utter coward I found Troyat s prose particularly powerful because it laid out Ivan s actions in a non emotional, matter of fact manner This somehow made the tyrant s atrocities seem even monstrous Equally shocking was the length of time that Ivan was able to abuse his people from lowest peasants to highest nobles without any sort of rebellion For a weste [...]

    I expected a bigger book when I ordered but instead got a pocket novel sized book which added my suspicion about the extent of the details Mr.Troyat will have on Ivan the terrible.I was right It did not give detailed accounts of the story like his books about Pushkin or Tolstoy May be not much is known about Ivan IV But other than that ,It gives you the general outline of the events of his life if you don t know anything on this subject like me.

    Nice written book, especially for an Eastern European like myself with some knowledge about russian behavior throughout the modern times Vivid descriptions of xvi century russia with its first tsar Ivan Groznyi the Terrible Although a history book you can read it as a novel due to an impressive talent H Troyat A never let go until finished book.

    This was a very readable bio of a remarkably cruel historical figure The only criticism I have is that Troyat spends time telling us what Ivan was thinking about various subjects, in particular torture I m not sure how he comes by his information OTOH, this was a quick and easy intro to Ivan IV.

    I can t believe he would walk around with a little dagger and use it, even on his own son, whenever he felt a wee bit angry A good portrait of a man who thought G d was his equal And a good look at Russia in the mid 1500s.

    Short and sweetI think the author may make some inferences into Ivan IV s mind that imbue the book with a sense of the grotesque which is unnecessary given the subject matter Still, I enjoyed reading itd Ivan was a grease ball.

    I really liked this book, which surprised me, since I m not into historical biographies I found this book to be informative and very interesting I did read another Ivan the Terrible book at the same time and I m glad I did Each author expounded on what the other omitted.

    What Troyat lacks in actual facts he makes up for in titillating bits as well as a unique writing style Interesting to read and forceful, even if it did leave me a little doubtful when I compared facts to other books I ve read about Ivan IV

    Esimene kirjastus Kunst kuldse sarja raamat, mida ma lugesin lapsep lves ja sellest sai alguse huvi paljude teiste eluloodega tutvumise vastu.

    I like how the author is so cut and dried about the man He shows no emotion which is how it should be in historical writing.

    The man was a paranoid monster to the core and a sadist, but years ago upon the excavation and examination of his mother it was discovered that she was indeed poisoned.
