7% done with War and Peace

The death scene of Count Bezukhov (not a spoiler) is one of the most haunting and beautiful scenes I have ever had the pleasure of re-reading.

Started in on book 2 and I love the touches of humor : a one eyed General reviewing the troops with their poor boots and gray jackets (after switching them) is quite funny (in a lit-nerd sort of way, that is).

This novel is beyond brilliant.
