Reading for Thursday, 28 May
The evening with Pierre, Marya and Natasha continues as they sit around the dinner table discussing things. This time, the conversation revolves around Pierre, and he shares his story. Even though, in a sense, it’s rehashing the story that we alreadyhave read, it’s the sense of healing that comes from talking about everything that is so interesting.
Also, another thing that I think is worth mentioning, it’s one of the few times in the book where people actually have honest conversations about what they’re feeling. Most of the time people talk to each other in mock politeness or coldness or there’s some tension going on.
This is just three people, good friends, becoming even better friends. And who doesn’t like that?
