One of the..

.. first 'fat' books that I ever read was Anna Karenina.. One of Mr. Tolstoys greatest book..

Dont know why this quote which I had read on the first page of that book if floating in my mind since morning..

It read, 'Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.'

Was having a discussion with my cousin today, and we talked of the book.. The story, if you know, has a complex structure to it.. Is laced with love, lust, deceit, honor, pride, poverty, opulence and grandeur and many many more things.. We were discussing how books from that era were remarkably similar and reflective of the oppressive times these writers lived in ... People like Tolstoy, Kundera .. never had it easy and it reflects in their stories of fiction... Some of the greatest stories ever told ..

Anyway, went for a run this morning and once again twisted my ankle and am bed bound for this long awaited, finally here, but crap bank holiday weekend. So typical.

I better learn to laugh at this.
