SPOILER ALERT: Don't read unless you have reached page 1 of chapter 1 in "Fortress Pieces" in The Bronze Horseman.
I just made dinner for my family and feel guilty as sin. I cannot imagine going through what people went through in Leningrad in 1941. It is becoming a struggle to read the book because it is just so heartbreaking to watch them starve in such detail. Hear hear to Paullina Simons for doing such thorough research.
Where exactly do I rank on the HPM (Horrible Person Meter) if I keep wishing a bomb would off Dasha?
When Tatiana made Alexander promise not to break Dasha's heart, I made myself promise not to throw up in my mouth a little. Then I cried.
I am already going back and seeking out happier times. Rereading even small parts like Tatiana faking out Alexander in the kitchen and saying "Gotta be quicker than that, Shura" make my heart smile.
I am literally afraid to continue. That's probably why I'm on this damned computer.
I have barely read any of your comments because I'm too afraid of spoilers. To me - saying "Alexander looked happy that day" is a spoiler. I just like to find it all out for myself.
Shannon (from MOP) and I are chapter for chapter (make that percentage for percentage on our damned electronic reading devices) and spent 20 minutes lamenting in my car at school pick up today.
If Alexander ever marries Dasha, I may have to put the book down.
