The Czar's Madman

By Jaan Kross

I needed to take a book to Costa Rica, and I didn't want to take a library book, so I took this one, since I own it, read it a while ago, and remembered it was good.
I didn't have much time to read while in Costa Rica, and it took me a while to finish it (though I did finish it a week ago!), but the more I got into it, the more interesting it became. The book has "a novel" as a subtitle on the cover, yet it's written as if the author just displays a journal written by someone else. To confuse you even more, there's a whole section on evidence that the author found for the authenticity of the journal. [368 pp.]
