"The Bronze Horseman" is my favourite book of all time. I am so pleased to release it -- I believe that it's too good to keep to myself. I so hope many others will enjoy sharing it, and will pass it on.

This book had an extremely powerful and profound impact on my life. It actually made me take a step back and look at what is important in life and what isn't. Paullina Simons has written an amazing piece, which should be read by everyone.
I have become involved with a group of people who also share my passion for the book on and I am also thrilled that Paullina regularly visits and involves herself in the daily discussions on the board. I don’t think she realise how much that means to people on the board.
I am very excited about the upcoming sequel to this book and know that other allreaders regulars and myself are counting down the days till Feb arrives.
Thanks Paullina for a wonderful book and thanks to all the guys and girls on the board for sharing the same passion.

I loved this book with such a profound intensity I could not (for months) think about anything but Tatiana and Alexander's love and whether they would be re-united. I was desperately seeking information about whether there would be a sequel (which there is~The Bridge to Holy Cross) when I logged on to I love Paullina's ability to not only "story tell" but to enable me to feel as if I am an integral part of the narrative. I cried when they cried and fought when they fought...luckily though, I did not starve when they did. Words fail to express my admiration for Paullina and her ability to make this fictional world feel real. The Bronze Horseman is the best book I have ever read, it changed my life and my ought to be listed as a Classic.

I thank Alison for donating this book and for Elisa for sending it to me. Thanks also to Nicola for organising this adventure. I hope this book finds Sheri (my
American counterpart) in good health and brings with it my best wishes for the future.

All the best, and happy reading.

It is an honor and a pleasure to be apart of this book crossing. From the moment I opened this book I connected right away with the characters. They became REAL to me. I can honestly say there were so many times I absolutely could not put this book down. The author actually takes you to where Tatiana and Alexander are. I can visualise everything. Paullina Simon's descriptions of the scenery, the war, the struggles, the starvation, the heartache and the LOVE were all brought to life for me in this book. No book has EVER had an affect on me like this one. I can't explain it. I would give it 1000 stars if I could. Thank you Kristin for sending the book to me. Thank you Alison for letting your book be the one to be released and for helping the US get the Sequel. Thank you Nicola for setting this all up and I will send it to you next. And last but not least thank you Paullina for writing this book and the Sequel. I can honestly say my eyes see the world differently since reading this book. Take Care and God Bless, Sheri Meyer

The Bronze Horseman captured my heart, took over my mind, even in my dreams, and left me desperate for more. It's given me more than any other book including all those friends from who have been there during the long wait for the sequel. Thank to Paullina for writing it, and thank you to everyone on

The book is now being sent to Jenni in Scotland.

I hope it touches many more people on its release into the wild.

Best wishes

The Bronze Horseman stayed with me like no other book I've read. For months after I'd finished reading (and re-reading) it the story was in my head and in my heart. To be able to touch so many people through words is a very powerful gift indeed. Thanks to Alison for releasing her copy of The Bronze Horseman into the wild and to Nicola for organising its journey. Now onwards to Cassie.

With very best wishes, especially to everyone at,


Journal Entry 8 by Faye from Faversham, Kent United Kingdom on Tuesday, February 11, 2003
This book had the most amazing effect on me like no other. I too experienced what Alexander and Tatiana did and felt what they felt. It surprises me sometimes that Tatiana and Alexander are characters and did not live through what they did because they seem so real to me. But they are real, because in all the hearts of the readers they touched, they live on.

I also want to say a big thank you to Paullina for writing this book and to tell everyone at all.readers that it has been so nice getting to know you over the last two years.

The book is now onward to Nicola and then Australia,

All the best,

The Bronze Horseman is one book that has forever stayed in my mind. An incredible story of love, war, and of two characters that were so.....strong! Thank god the wait is over and we can now read the next part.
Thanks to Alison for passing on this copy to me and also to Nicola for organising it's trip around the globe.
It is now going to find it's way back to Paullina this week.

Happy reading!


Journal Entry 10 by Hulk1941 from Northport, New York USA on Thursday, April 7, 2005
This is my book. It was given to me by a lovely woman named Alison in Brisbane, Australia, two years ago, when I had gone to her town on a book tour for its sequel, THE BRIDGE TO HOLY CROSS. For the last two years her copy of The Bronze Horseman has sat under my desk where I work, and every morning when I sit down at my chair and see it in a little pink floral gift bag under the table, I say to myself, I must release the book today, this afternoon, tomorrow, this weekend. Well, I've released it now, in Northport, New York, pristine in its little spring bag into a coffee shop. I hope a kind soul picks it up, takes a gander, can't put it down. Not a day goes by in my life when I don't think about Tatiana and Alexander. Not least because I'm still writing about them, all these years down the pike, still mulling, consuming, imagining, figuring things out, living their life side by side with them. Because of the Bronze Horseman, I have been touched by the lives of thousands of people who have written to me, come to see me, started up websites, forums, picture galleries, went to St. Petersburg, read Pushkin, became interested in Russian history. My universe is seemingly so small, just me in my little office, my chair, my computer, my pens and my notebooks, day in, night out, weeks, months, years, but yet...not small at all but vast because other people picked up a copy of this book, and something in Tatiana and Alexander's story moved them the way it had moved me, and continues to move me still. For the great gift of my readers––young, old, married, single, male, female, Australian, New Zealander, British, Irish, Russian, French, Polish, Spanish, Dutch, German, Chinese, Greek, Brazilian, South African, Nigerian, Philipino, Canadian, American, people who have no inkling of the sufferings of Leningrad and people who have lived through their own Leningrads––I bow my my grateful head to you all, and thank the Author of Life for you. Please enjoy my book, and if you want to drop me a line, I'd love to hear from you on

With my warmest wishes,

Paullina Simons
