I've just finished Doctor Zhivago my first book of 2010, and I'm still ummming and ahhing whether to post this post. I thought I'd just say a few quick words.
I read this as part of a librarything group read, I'd voted for it and was quick off the mark to buy it when it looked like it was leading the votes. And I started reading it before the month even started. However I have crawled through this book for the last 10 days.
I found some parts of it wonderful(Lara and Yury living together), some parts okay (his first marriage) and then other bits I was just lost, not concentrating or skim reading (mainly the war section and the epilogue). I know this is a widely loved book, did anyone else have similar problems to me?
