    I have just finished reading:
    Captain Coignet: A soldier of Napoleon's Imperial Guard from the Italian Campaign to Waterloo.
    Memoirs of Sergeant Bourgogne: Napoleon's Russian Campaign and retreat from Moscow.

    A voice from the main deck: Being a record of the thirty years adventures of Samuel Leech
    This one really shows the bad lot of sailors of the British fleet during the age of sail. Especially the barbaric sentence of Flogging around the Fleet with the cat-o'-nine-tails.

    All very good personal accounts.

    Currently reading:
    Eastern Inferno: The journals of a German Panzerjager on the eastern front, 1941-1943

    I'm not feeling the 3rd book of the Altered carbon series at all. I'm still reading it, It seems even worse than the 2nd book in my view. Thinking I might try the Expanse Book 4 and so on. Still got the Jim Butcher Dresden files to work on though.

    And what is a classic? People have different preferences, like music, movies, art, food.

    I read War and Peace once, struggled through it, I hated it, that is one book I would not progress beyond say a chapter now.
    2, 3 pages, perhaps, maybe 10...but then I read very fast....

    If you are not enjoying a book, why persist, despite other peoples opinions, or critics ratings etc....

    if it's written in a different era there's a cognitive headwind to get through if you want to appreciate why people believe/believed it was a classic in the first place.

    2 pages of a book is just nada imo

    Finished the Nevernight series https://us.macmillan.com/series/thenevernightchronicle/
    3 books about a young girl that becomes an assassin with dark powers and seeks revenge.
    While the books are alright, by the third book it felt like the author was just showing off (actually referring to his own books within the series). Also,the third book felt that that the author was more interested in writing about sex scenes rather than the story.
    Book 1: 8/10
    Book 2: 7/10
    Book 3: 4/10
