hi there, i got up to book 5. i'd like to finish the series when i can.
has anybody delved into the question as to whether anastasia is real or not?
i've heard rumors of things, including a court case where a woman in russia, claiming to be the one megre based his books on (i think she might also be a writer or something) took megre to court. to be honest though, she looks nothing like the anastasia in our beloved books would. for one thing in the picture of her, her face is heavily done up with make-up, and for another she is wearing furs.
according to the person who read the details of this (i only have their word), megre admitted in court that anastasia is fictional.
has anyone else researched this?
and whether she is fact or fictional....do you think it matters?
