    interesting book.worth reading. hints of where Tolstoy would go later in life with his political and religious ideas; shows an astute observer of emotional and mental lives of young people.

    SO sorry, but I will not be able to attend the meeting tonight. 'really do like the group, but there are some major household issues to attend to. I hope to see you at an upcoming meeting.

    I finally finished Demons; it took me long enough. (I did take out some time to read Rudin.) Since many of us had not finished Demons when we had our meetup, I was wondering if others might like to get together to discuss the whole novel.
    I'll be out of town (with no email) July 17-24. But please let me know if you're interested.

    Hi Jack, will it be possible to pick books a few months in advance? Trying to fit it all into my busy schedule ;-)

      The next novel will be The Shooting Party by Chekov and his play Uncle Vanya.
