I have finally finished reading War and Peace. It took me exactly two months and I feel battle weary after reading it.

It was superb but it did drag on a bit and was soooooooooooo detailed that it hurt. I am glad that I decided to perserve with it, but I can now well see why a lot of people don’t make it to the end of the book, due to its dryness and length.

I do intend to try and read James Joyce’s Ulysses before August this year, when I turn the big four-0, but might leave it a little while longer before I start that particular tome.
