Yes, do give it another shot; perhaps I am simply blinded somewhat from critical examination from having to look for 3-4 odd years to find the book to think of it properly.

My only complaints thus far is that the translator decided to leave the occasional phrase in French, which is tempting me to get Post-it notes and read through the book again entirely and stick notes on the pages so I can translate and understand the phrases.
And that, much like real life, I find that there are no really relatable characters to which I can connect to much. The only characters which come close are early Prince Andrei/Andrey and Pierre (insofar as I have read).
I could not stand "War and Peace". Or, anything else from Tolstoy.

I've never been able to appreciate those Russian novelists.
