    Like pretty much all literature to do with Russia, I find it almost impossible to struggle through the pages. I've never managed to sort out what it is, but Tolstoy and most Dostoyevsky and biographies of Lenin all fall into the same category - I just find it incredibly difficult to read.

    That being said, this is a great book so far.
    Of course, its written by an Oregonian

    Yes, well, so is Chuck Palahniuk. You can't win them all, I guess.

    I am now reading Robert Service's biography of Lenin. It's excellent - neither fawning nor overly antagonistic.

    Purchased the Hellmann bio of Oscar, and the Murray one of Bosie.

    Can't wait to get my nose buried in it.

    Just starting this and I'm pretty excited about finally getting around to reading some Lovecraft. It's a shame the picture doesn't show it but the pages have an awesome roughly hewn quality to them to emulate an old tome or something. It actually makes the pages a little difficult to turn but hey, sometimes you have to suffer a little for aesthetics.

    Finished Crime and Punishment by Dostoevsky a few days ago. It was very good, even if it took me a good bit to get through it.

    Now reading Wizard and Glass (Dark Tower #4) by Stephen King. I love this series.
