This is a very readable book about, well, Catherine the Great.  Generally the book reads like a novel, or rather like a soap opera, with all of Catherine's various romances.  While of course the main events of her rule--legislation, rebellions, wars--are discussed, they are not the focus of this book--the spotlight is firmly on Catherine's "portrait as a woman".
