It took some effort to keep track of the characters (tons of em), and the book had a tendency to drift into historical text book mode, but other than that, it was pretty good.Annie (Lady M) xhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/00086309578820420578noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-134830813707647265.post-41111936119734278312010-07-07T21:46:42.686-06:002010-07-07T21:46:42.686-06:00I have a copy of War and Peace.

I loved Anna Karenina though so I know I will finish Tolstoy&#39;s other novel some day. Thanks for the tip on the movie.

Have you ever read the &#39;Agony And The Ecstasy&quot; by Irvin Stone? It is about Michelangelo, one of my favourite lines in the world comes from that book. Mikey was commisioned to paint the sistine chapel by the pope so he couldn&#39;t refuse, but he couldn&#39;t get to the chapel. One of the medici&#39;s gave Mike a horse, and you can&#39;t charge the pope so the horse was costing Mike more than he could possibly earn. Mike&#39;s father says, &#39;Never accept a gift that eats&#39;<br /><br />Have I totally bored you yet, trust me the book is excellent. So is &#39;Of Human Bondage&#39; by Somerset Maugham, but it was very long.bmat10http://bmat10.wordpress.com/noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-134830813707647265.post-75645015989515976952010-07-07T18:13:31.352-06:002010-07-07T18:13:31.352-06:00Hey nice!
