So far this book is pretty intriguing to me. I've never read a Russian literature book yet and reading about the time period (mid to late 1800s) is SO INTERESTING. If you know me personally, you are probably aware that I find Russian and Japanese history immensely enthralling ever since the beginning of my AP World History class. Learning more about the way society worked in this time period following the emancipation of slaves in 1861 and the creation of more liberal reforms is so much fun. Also, the writing continues to impress me with some of the metaphors Tolstoy crafts and beautiful imagery he depicts. In addition, the numerous complex relationships and characters always keep things fresh. I just wish there was a tiny bit more of editing done because I want to focus less on farming techniques and more on the plot (but that's just me).

Okay, so I don't know what's going on here. This book is very intriguing with a brilliant plot and dark characters. But, for some reason, it's taking me forever to get through it? Maybe it's because I started it at the end of January and the whole of February was a slump for me? I don't know but I'm inching through it slowly but surely. I've heard so many wonderful things about it so HOPEFULLY it won't turn into a DNF.
