    Bewildered is the perfect verb for this book! I am currently in The Lawyer- The factory Owner- The Painter chapter.

    Admittedly, still plugging through Mrs. Dalloway as well.)

    I’m in the same place as April. Last night K. was just heading off to meet the Painter.

    I just finished yesterday. I still not sure I get ch. 9. Did anyone else think it was strange how all the women were throwing themselves at K.?

      Me! I thought it was weird. Especially the parts with Leni.

      Is it worth the read? My husband and I both quit there. We thought maybe it was like watching deleted scenes on a DVD, sometimes they make you say, “Well, you can see why that hit the editing room floor,” and other times they make you go, “Oh! Well NOW that makes sense.” But mostly, we were just being lazy. But if you recommend them I’ll go back and give them a read.
