it was ok
Read in August, 2008

Started reading this during my summer job but stopped the next day b/c I was too busy and couldn't concentrate. Started to read it again on August 5th. Finished it today, August 25th. It seems so painfully long. There's so much Russian political blah blah that I really could care less about and didn't really aide the story, imho. It seriously detracted from the love story, which is the point of the story. Also, Part Eight definitely could have been eliminated. According to the endnotes, it was just added because Tolstoy was thinking about it, but it was left out in most editions. I obviously picked up the wrong edition.
