Started reading this book as an extracurricular novel whenever I need to take a break from my current primary read, Jane Eyre. Love the writer‘s style and I think I am enjoying this book much more than One Hundred Year‘s of Solitude. page 13/348

Page 172/433, unfortunately somehow this magnificent book became boring the moment she became a governess and met our leading man. If a tv show became boring i would move on after a couple episodes left me uninvested; so, i will treat this book the same way, save myself some many boring/frustrated hours, read a different book, and come back to this when i am ready and refreshed and having forgotten the feeling of boredom.

EricJames1 I decided to change the channel to Love in the Time of Cholera and Crime and Punishment and was able to return to Jane Eyre refreshed and with greater speed and vivacity than before. Now on page 182 (edited) 3w

Hands down one of the best or the best books I have ever read. Both the execution and plot/character is perfect. I love this book and something about its personality has brought me back to fourth grade which was somewhat of a golden age of reading for me. I am on Chapter 10, 85/433 pages in.

I am half-way but I only feel compelled to read this because it‘s my brothers favorite novel. I tend to notice in many novels things only get good after the half-way mark. I would hope that I have no regrets having spent my time reading this. We shall see. Let me know if you‘ve read any of Dostoevsky‘s works and what you thought!
