I've re-read War and Peace in just over a month. Wonderful it is indeed until I come to the Second Epilogue, with Count Lev going round and round in circles about a Philosophy of History. He seems to be saying that any existing philosophy of history is wrong. Frankly, I couldn't care.

These turgid self-indulgent pages by someone who was no doubt a good, imaginative and humane man are something I find terminally boring.

I totally agree with you. The first epilogue was great, like the rest of the book, but I found the second one absolutely useless and boring.
