The Charterhouse of Parma - Stendahl
Well, readers, it was bound to happen - after a streak of liking all the books I was reading, I hit one I just couldn't get into. Maybe it was the translation, who knows, but this book just didn't send me. It seemed like it was about twice as long as it should have been, and the characters didn't seem like people I was worried about or cared too much about. Maybe it's just my mental state, maybe it's the aforementioned translation, but this one I can't recommend, unfortunately.
