If I were omniscient, I'd listen to hunting dogs talk too.

I'm on page 197 of this tome. Out of 817. I really won't be reading much else lately huh?

There's a horse race going on right now. Actually kinda interesting (much better than farming).

But the thing I wanted to point out was, when Oblonsky went to visit Levin and they went hunting, there was a moment where Tolstoy had us slip into the DOG'S mind!

'Found a fine time to talk!' she thought. 'And there's one coming... There it is, all right. They'll miss it...' thought Laska.
--[pg. 165, Anna Karenina]

Wow, I mean, when they call it the omniscient third, I guess it's REALLY omniscient.
