Team Tolstoy

22 Oct

Fans of a certain teenage vampire book identify themselves as being part of Team Edward or Team Jacob.

Who’s team are you on?
Team Alexey and Anna… or the other Team Alexey and Anna?
Team Levin and Kitty?
Team Stepan and Dolly?

What team keeps you reading and reading in our latest, lengthy Russian novel?

Share your team and your place in the comments.

    Currently, I’m on Team Levin and Kitty…although I’m guessing that will change, since I’m just about halfway through the book. This is a Russian novel, so they can’t be happy forever, can they? It’s been so refreshing to read about their romance…something good happening for a change!

      Let’s hope their relationship stays positive. Someone needs a “happily ever after”.

    I’m definitely on Team Levin and Kitty. I’m on Part 5, Chapter 18.

      What was that term for reading along with someone? synchro-reading? or something like that…

        Yep. Synchro-reading — it should be an Olympic event!
        Let’s go for the gold Sandy!!!

    Levin and Kitty. Although I have a strange sympathy for Anna…

    Part 6, chapter 12.

      Hmmm sympathy for Anna. We certainly didn’t have much of that for Emma B.

    Can I be on a solo team? Team Dolly. Poor woman! I just finished part six, and I am relating to this woman in a lot of ways, and I just really pity her. But I still am enjoying Kitty and Levin.

      Absolutely. I enjoy reading about Dolly’s love for and enjoyment of her children.

    I keep switching teams every five or six chapters. Wait, that’s Tolstoy, not me. I do like the way he has this whole laid out – it keeps everything fresh and exciting.

    Oh, and I’m on Part V Chapter 15 and despite a weekend full of company and a nasty cold I’m still on meeting my six chapter a day quota. Looking good to finish by Nov. 9.

    I believe that I am trailing you all now, but that what was predictable. As of the the 25th I was in Part V chapter 23 or something like that. I’ll catch you up later.
