The battle at Waterloo was particularly striking, so much so that I had trouble adjusting when I came upon the chapter after that, which was good as well, though in a different way."

100.0% "I don't know why, but for many immensely long books, the ending is always the best part to me. No matter how much I rail at the slow and boring parts that have come before, reading the last thirty pages or so will be therapeutic and I would be sorry to see it end. It's the same for this. Also, I thought the book would end unsatisfactorily, (having taken a peek before) but I'm glad to say it felt just right."
