Okay, so I really enjoyed the first part of this book, but this second part was not as amusing as I had hoped it would be. Don't get me wrong, its still interesting. We have a kid who bites Alyosha and then we have Ivan declaring his personal ideologies regarding God to his brother Alyosha and then we learn about the elder Zosima and how he found his faith. All in all, some fascinating events, diatribes, etc - however, as far as trying to get through these pages, well that was a bit difficult. I found myself not as immersed in the text during this part, which made me wonder how the upcoming Part 3 would fare - hopefully better. I'm off to try and read a bit more. Fingers crossed that I get more engaged with this text, because I'm seriously considering putting it on pause.
By the by, I know that this wasn't an actual review of Part 2 and more of a whinge about reading Part 2, but I couldn't help it. However, if you want a review to find out about Part 2, then check out this site or this one.
