Reading for Monday, 22 December
And in this chapter, we find out what Nikolai Rostov has been up to. Despite all the goings-on in his family, he still likes the non-responsibility of the army life.
There’s not much to comment on in this chapter, but the story of the general and his two sons crossing the bridge is a highlight moment of the chapter.
However, there was a mention of Denisov in this chapter, in that the young soldier Ilyin is now to Nikolai what Nikolai was to Denisov seven years ago. I was just trying to remember, did they specifically mention what happened to Denisov? I’m assuming that, unless I hear anything otherwise, that he probably died in the hospital of the disease he had when Nikolai visited him.
Not sure . . . We may find out?
