This is supposedly about Leo Tolstoy‘s final year, told from the perspective of his secretary, wife, daughter, doctor, the milkman etc. But really it is just them lot bitching about each other. No one is likeable and there‘s not enough about Tolstoy himself. I‘m out...! (Gonna watch the film instead 😉) #nfnov

Hey @squirrelbrain how are you getting on with this? One day I‘m finding its really interesting then other days I‘m finding it a slog. 🤷‍♀️ I feel like I want to be done with it now but I‘m only 37% through!! 🤦‍♀️ #looseygooseybuddyread

DrexEdit I was going to comment that this book looked interesting to me. But, come to find it's already on my #TBR. So stacking! 😊 📚 3w
squirrelbrain Hey, just the same for me! I‘m reading it on the train (or I was - distracted with something else this week!). Some days I enjoy it, other days I couldn‘t tell you what I‘ve read, even though I‘m turning the pages! 😬 I think I‘m enjoying the personal stuff and not the war / political bits. I‘m about 50% in (Napoleon‘s around) and I‘m hoping it will get more and more interesting the closer it gets to present day. 3w
Caroline2 @squirrelbrain Yeah I‘ve just got up to the napoleon bit so it‘s feeling more engaging now. I think the author gets way too distracted giving details on all the Generals and their love lives....I don‘t care!!! Just stick with the royal family, that‘s hard enough to follow as it is!!!! 😆 3w

Nadia was living in a remote village in Iraq when ISIS invaded. Her story of survival and witnessing genocide is heartbreaking. I learnt so much from this book about the different religions & ethnicities that make up Iraq and it‘s recent history. A thought proving read that has really affected me. #nfnov

So this guy goes and lives in the woods for decades but he‘s not ‘living off the land‘ he steals from all the local residents. He‘s caught & goes to jail...the writer admits to being constantly told to go away and that he‘s causing “serious damage” to the family yet continues to pursue the guy any way?? This was a weird read!!!!! #nfnov

I had pretty low expectations going in given the title and pulpy looking cover (which I also think is awesome btw) but this was actually really good!

ravenlee If it‘s just recently, it could be related to changes in weather. If so, a humidifier could help.

I hope it goes away soon! 2mo

I haven‘t read the Stephen King & Joe Hill novella so I don‘t know how good an adaptation this is but I really enjoyed this film. A good old fashioned horror film! 👍 #scarathlon #teamstoker
