    Empress of the Night A Novel of Catherine the Great review Û eBook or Kindle ePUB Empress of the Night A Novel of Catherine the GreatFrom the moment I started listening to this book I could tell that it was something uniue It was probably a novel that I would have enjoyed in print than as an audiobook Listening too it I found my mind wandering and got lost in the disjointed storytelling Beginning with the scene of Catherine's dying moments Empress of the Night has a dreamlike uality of the empress' life flashing before her eyes Instead of a comprehensive biography the reader is given random snippets that stand out to Catherine as her last breaths slip away Some scenes are told in exuisite detail while others are never mentioned Most of the focus is on Catherine's legendary love lifeThere is some beautiful prose in this novel but not enough of a distinct plot to keep my interest in this format
