Tolstoy Link to Share

Here's a really good article from The Guardian about Tolstoy and how Russians view him. I really hope the film the article mentions, The Last Station, gets a release somewhere I can see it because it sounds fantastic.

Also, according to the article, Russian schoolkids read War and Peace when they are 14 or 15. Holy crap! When I was that age, there was no way I would have "gotten" that book.


  1. This looks awesome. I just picked up Anna Karenina and I'm really excited about it.

  2. Anna Karenina is quite good. It took me awhile to get through, but it's really worth it - especially the second half.
