I’ve set aside the Russian for the moment (but don’t worry – I’ll come back to it) and what a difference it makes to my stats. I finished Never Let Me Go on the weekend and I’m zipping through Your Voice In My Head. As much as I’ve tried to shake off the damage the Russian has been doing to my +/- in the interest of reading and appreciating a classic work of literature that has long been on my to-read list, I haven’t been able to quite let it go. I want to immerse myself in the nuances of 19th century Petersburg society but I’m bugged by my slow progress. However, now that I’ve dug myself out a little bit, I’m feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and ready to revisit the Russian.
