War and Peace - Leo Tolstoy,  Henry Gifford,  Aylmer Maude,  Louise Maude I've tried to read this one twice. So far without any success; I can't get past the first 100 pages.

It may be one of the greatest novels in any language but for whatever reason it simply does not "speak" to me in any way. For the moment. Perhaps there may come a time when I will appreciate it but for the nonce my attention will remain focused elsewhere.
