Reading for Monday, 19 January
I can’t tell you how happy this chapter made me. I really had thought he’d died there.
And there he was, proposing a plan to Kutuzov! Great stuff. Also, I loved the little ironic description of how Denisov knows Andrei proposed to Natasha, and thinks back nostalgically to when he had a crush on her – not realising that it was far more traumatic for Andrei than a little crush . . .
Obviously, we find out a bit more about Kutuzov in this chapter, but I can make my comments on him in the next chapter.
