I don't remember what the last few pages were about. The television was on. I got distracted.

Enjoying it, but putting it down for a while. There are other books in the world who need me.

Finished Book 3! Prince Andrew is captured... Yikes. But left behind. Probably good for him.

Boys are just as ridiculous as girls. Here's Rostov: "Oh, Dear Heaven. I do so wish I could lay my wide doe eyes upon the Emperor once again. Oh. Sigh. If only. Tomorrow I shall ask to be sent into battle. I just KNOW he'll notice me then! Oh and I just KNOW he'll choose me as his one and only best soldier. And we'll live happily ever after, side by side, on our beautiful and graceful horses!!! SWOOOON!"

I keep reading and reading and I get to really liking some of the characters, but then two pages later, they do something dickish to make me not like them anymore. So I start to think to myself, "Geez Tolstoy, be consistent!" But then I think, "OMG, this is how people actually behave in real life. Even people you like do dickish stuff sometimes. Is Tolstoy a genius or am I deluded into hoping he is?"

1. That Tushin is a lovely guy. Gentle and tough and funny and talented at war. 2. Dead and dying horses. PETA would not like this book.

Poor Rostov. He is wounded and delirious.

I know I sound a little bitter about all the silly war stuff and how Tolstoy is kinda like, "blah blah blah" all the time, but to be honest, there are some bits of this book that are just lovely. This Rostov guy is finally catching on about the seriousness of his situation. A gorgeous happy sunshine and one millisecond later, a fearful prayer for protection.

War and Peace was found in a paper bag underneath a bunch of stuff. Anyway, in case you're wondering what this book is about, the War part is about people walking up to other people and saying stuff followed by different people walking up to people and saying stuff. It is also about not knowing wtf to do during a war, which I believe is probably pretty true to all wars, unfortunately.
