really liked it

for those who are going to die, for those who are dying and for those who are there in their mother's womb, you death is a already fixed, one who is getting old, from busy job during mid life to a hollow,directionless,failing body in the old age. apart from death the waiting kills so much, tolstoy has captured the intricacies of old age, i remember my grandfather who suffered 3 months at a stretch to leave his body, and to my other grand father who is presently in his last stage of life struggling to come to terms with old age. The death of Ivan Ilyich is a master piece from Tolstoy which inspires me to read his other great works like War and Piece. This particular novel sounds more like a doestovesky novel, it also resembles Frank Kafka' MEtamorphosis , more of old age.
