Who's read it?
I've tried it about 5 times in my life, last being ages ago, and picked it up again in an attempt to make it all the way through. I know it's a classic and all, but 100 pages in and it just feels like work.
When does this actually get interesting? The first handful of chapters seem like nonsensical banter between characters with zero background information. :\
I got to the exact same point as you, with the exact same feeling. There's only so many russian dinner parties I can read about.
