War and Peace: 2019


#321

Come on and tell us why Boris’s mum is knee deep in a lawsuit already, Tolsters!

I’m quite enjoying it now. Chapter 15 on the Steve version done.

I’ve lost track of everything.

Powdered wigs fell off

No idea where I’m supposed to be with this by now but I’m up to chapter 19 of the Gutenberg and it’s back to boring Russian parties again. Don’t like many of the new characters; Anna ‘lend us a tenner’ Mikhaylovna, Marya ‘she tells it like it is!’ Akhrosimova and the boring Rostovs. The military types are all fairly interchangeable as well. Bring on the WAR!


#325

This has done me


#326

Today’s chapter in my version ended with Lend Us A Tenner and one of the Rostov’s(?) crying, and the sentence “but both of the women’s tears were sweet” or something.

Toltoy’s really a bit weird about women eh?


#327

Also what was up with boring Rostov Dad. He has a collection of Turkish pipes but he doesn’t smoke them himself?


#328

Some sort of pipe voyeur.


#329

Caught up yesterday after missing a few days. Quite enjoying all the social niceties and Anna’s shameless grifting. Still maintain it’s quite funny, Tolstoy is a very arch narrator.

Haven’t pinned down who all the Rostov kids are though.

Pierre is so endearing although he’d do my nut in in real life

Edit: ffs autocorrect

Think I’m up to date, but not 100% sure. Read a chapter a day anyway.


#336

Needs an option for “screw it, I’m deep into part two already, the war is ON”


#337

SEMEN! DO YOU KNOW THE DANIEL COOPER?


#338

Realised today I can play the Daniel Cooper at the Russia-themed silent disco I’m djing next month


#339
