Reading War & Peace Just another WordPress weblog


And I’ll be joining in.

I'm sharing in the War and Peace attempt.  This time, I'm armed with flashcards with all (well, most) of the characters' names so I can try to keep them straight.

Seriously, Tolstoy, who names one character "Dokhturov" and another "Dolgorukov" and yet another "Dolokhov"?

No really, it’s going to work this time

So I failed miserably at my attempt to read War & Peace. I was the reading equivalent of running at full speed into a brick wall. I was not prepared for the density or references I would need to look up. I tried one other time and made it further but I wasn't really mentally in the game. Now I am ready to make another serious run at it. I started today and hope to finish in about three months.
