War and Peace
Well, at least attempting to. I had to re-read the first page 3 times which I don't think is a good start. But then it doesn't leave you with much confidence when the last few pages of the introduction is an introduction [read: list] to all the characters and their relations within the novel. I'm looking forward to the moment when the story falls into place.
The other four books in the list include; Anna Karenina, Madame Bovary, Lolita and The Adventures of Hucklberry Finn. I went for the Time top five as it seemed to be the most consistent.
