Anyone read War & Peace?

I've been feeling really weird lately. I studied really hard for my finals (unnecessarily) , have been working out again, and I've been taking on extra work at my jobs. I dunno. But now I really know I've gone crazy... I've decided to read War & Peace in my spare time, and I'm actually looking forward to it. It just arrived in the mail a few minutes ago, and I truly underestimated the size, but for some reason, that made me happy... I'm contemplating Atlas Shrugged too... I have no idea if I'm even intelligent enough to read them properly, but I'm going to try.

I'm also eating a lot of veggies. This must be how my brother felt before he turned vegetarian.

Well, has anyone read it? Did you like it? The impression I always got is that people were forced to read it by their diabolical English 201 professors, and it nearly killed them... maybe someone here likes Tolstoy?

I heard it makes a really good door stop
I used to be a voracious reader but for some reason I just stopped. I haven't picked up a book in at least 3 years. I really miss it sometimes, but Tolstoy is not someone I would want to get my feet wet with again. Maybe re-read the Tao of Pooh

I thought I would "up" my english grade my senior yr of high school...I only made it about 100 pgs... :roll:

I wish you good luck! I found it a terribly daunting task!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

1 Chronicles 28:20
