Masanobu is on page 489 of 652 of La guerra de la Independencia I (Episodios Nacionales, Primera Serie #1-4)
Le doy 5 estrellas a la escalofriante narración de la revuelta del 2 de mayo, que me ha dejado sin palabras, igual que me sucedió con Trafalgar. Pero tanto el motín de Aranjuez como la historia de Inesilla y los Requejo han sido como mucho tolerables. En resumen, el tercer EN es muy desigual.

"Are you going through Spain to Paris?": At the last moment six or seven had sufficient decision of character to make up their minds to go, and did go, and I felt a sense of relief at once—it was forever too late now and I could make up my mind at my leisure not to go. I must have a prodigious quantity of mind; it takes me as much as a week sometimes to make it up.

Several times the photographer of the expedition [...] gave us a handsome magic-lantern exhibition. [...] He advertised that he would "open his performance in the after cabin at 'two bells' (nine P.M.) and show the passengers where they shall eventually arrive"—which was all very well, but by a funny accident the first picture that flamed out upon the canvas was a view of Greenwood Cemetery!

Wigs on the Green: 3 stars. This novel is more interesting than entertaining. Quite tiresome as a comedy of manners, but pretty good as a window into the lives of the Mitford sisters and into the political climate of pre-WWII UK.

Passages like this one make me cringe: 'I don't know a thing about politics, but I'm sure Hitler must be a wonderful man. Hasn't he forbidden German women to work in offices and told them they never need worry about anything again, except arranging the flowers? How they must love him.

Just starting Wigs on the Green. Will a giant joke about fascism stand the test of time?

I'm still plodding through. Even the dragons are boring. Ugh.

When the book finally starts to pace up, there comes another Tyrion chapter. Ever heard of infodump? ADWD is a prime example.
