Yes, I am addicted to the lolcatbuilder!
I am 944 pages into War and Peace - which means I only (only!) have 500 to go. My cat is not amused - he has actually taken a bite out of the cover. It's so big, it must be a toy, it can't possibly be something to read!
Don't get me wrong, it's a good book. And I enjoyed Anna Karenina. But man, does this guy need an editor. How many different ways can you write a battle scene?
Who chooses what makes a book a classic, I wonder?
And did you know - his wife copied his manuscripts by hand, by candlelight! Then again, they had about a dozen kids, so he must have been doing something for her.
