We've been to soirees, parties, even a casual ball or five during our time with War and Peace. We've watched as The King of Sauce set the dance floor on fire, we've seen kids doing backflips to impress other kids, we've applauded out of fear and amazement as the Blunt Dragon devoured people whole.

Some marry for love.

Some marry for a protracted negotiation around dowry payments, up front deposits, cash incentives and share options.

Some choose not to marry because they don't love someone.

Some choose not to marry because the dowry payments, up front deposits, cash incentives and share options aren't optimal in the current economic climate and the return on investment will be suboptimal.

Dear Diary,
My name's Pierre and I'm in my 20s, maybe early 30s, I'm not really sure. I've had a strange few years, I swapped my wife for a pile of bones and then I built a hospital out of money and sticks. Now I'm a senior guy at a pretty cool secret club, they think I'm pretty cool, but I'm starting to worry all the blood and arguments might not be as great as I first thought.
Anyway sleepy now, night n...

Move over Sherlock, pipe down Poirot, check yourself Miss Marple - there's a new detective in town and he's the real og.

This week we meet the incredible deductive mind of August Dupin - a sexy, forceful and profoundly arogant amateur detective cleaning up the streets of Paris with nothing more than his wit, his assistant and his incredible telepathic abilities.

Written by Edgar Allan Poe in 1841 it is widely considered to b...

"What next?!" You scream.

"I need more!!"

It's time to put your knowledge of Book 5 to the ultimate test. We've got questions about: bones, hands, horses, Smurfs and Freemasons.

It's the end of Book 5 AND the end of Volume 1 of War and Peace - and there are just so many unanswered questions:

Will Denisov escape the law?
Will peace last forever?
Will the surfs ever truly be free?
Why was that hospital so awful?
Will Nicky get an arbitrary promotion for no reason in particular?
Where did all those bones come from?
Who the hell stole all the biscuits?
What was that tiny monkey butler all about?

    This week we're talking Serfs - the indentured workforce of 1800s Russia, bonded to a lifetime of hard labor for zero pay as they slowly die from preventable diseases in their rat infested hovels.

    We'll be asking "Is that really that bad?" and hearing things like "Maybe my Serfs are actually having a great time?" as well as "Even if it won't cost me much to significantly improve their lives, what'...

    We've all joined ultra secretive societies before. We all know the drill: box of bones, blindfold, various sets of gloves with incredibly specific uses, a trowel, some aprons, secret hieroglyphs, an unknowable mystery, various states of undress and of course a very very very large bill to be paid immediately!

    For those of you who haven't joined a secret society I think you're in for quite a treat...
