10% done with War and Peace

I know this says too much about the kind of person I am, but Prince Nikolay Bolkonsky (the father) will always be my favorite character.

The first time I read War and Peace I had to re-read the first few chapters of book 2 I think about 3 times before finally ‘just going with it’. This time around I still find it hard to ‘hang onto’ exactly what’s going and so I’ll assume Tolstoy wants us to feel ‘out of place’.
