    Sadly, the Adventures of Kavalier and Clay.

    The Illiad. I'm not sure if twice counts as "keeps trying" but I might try again someday.

    Currently, "The Guns of August" by Barbara Tuchman. I feel like I should know more about the Great War, but I don't.

    I think, however, this was not the ideal book to start with. It's more military history than straight history, and also I keep messing up on names. (Why, why, did some of the French guys have to have German-sounding names, and some of the German guys French-sounding names?)

    Moby Dick, of course!
