I'm having so much fun! Passepartout is a very resourceful guy, lol. I never thought it could happen, but this one might kick down 20.000 from it's first place as my favorite Verne

I'm exhausted. I'll roll, post, and take a nap. Then I'll see whether I dare to coble a review from the multitude of post and notes I have.

Onto the final stretch, and wow is Anna around the bend.

 

Her though process has always been flighty, and annoyed me with it's weak tendency towards full denial and looping, but it's turned scary now, like a cornered, wounded wolf is scary, all teeth and desperation.

This interview between Stiva and Lidia, while looking at Landau, keeps hitting higher and higher on the creepy scale. Like she hadn't sound deranged enough the one chapter we followed her. This is religious fanaticism of the truly scary variety. Last push, huh?

 

Lol, even Stiva, the genius social butterfly, is totally stumped.

 

*sigh* my very sparse, and poor, French is getting a work-out

"Men need occupation, and Alexey needs a circle, so I value all these people. We have to have the house lively and gay, so that Alexey may not long for any novelty."

 

And in the midst of all that lengthy recitation of guests and neighbors and chattering (seriously, she speaks for more than a page non-stop), the truth.

 

I was mostly engrossed through the first half, but now all the meandering down society gazing lane is becoming a drag. I want to finish it already.
