War and Peace Leo Tolstoy Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

Perhaps literature’s greatest epic, War and Peace tells an astonishingly ambitious, profoundly personal, and vastly extensive story of Russia in the age of Napoleon. A work of historical fiction that is at times a romance and at times an adventure, Leo Tolstoy’s novel is, simply put, too big to fit into any literary genre. It features a cast of hundreds, yet paints intimate portraits of their intersecting lives as they move between prosperity and despair. The actions shifts back and forth between Moscow, the city of the people, and the decadent St. Petersburg; and shifts from royal ballrooms to brutal battlefields. Few writers have ever attempted to create a work so massive in scope and complex in themes, and none have succeeded quite the way Tolstoy has.

  • Is this book unabridged? I notice it has less pages than the ones you pay for.

    Charlie Brown mentioned this book in the Peanuts Movie. That was funny. But who seriously reads a 1,300 page book? That’s a bit much for me. I’ll stick to Swiss Family Robinson.
  • Just. Wow.

    By mavzman2
    Wow. Historical fiction, philosophy, economics, religion. This book was so much more than I ever imagined it could be. You MUST read this book before you die.

    This book is actually boring and confusing I love how long it is but it is a confusing choice

    The story is definitely one that you can read if your aiming to go to bed soon. If you’ve got a busy day ahead of you, read it at your free time. If you’ve got time however, that’s spectacular. I personally really enjoyed the book and for other readers who have read the book, I recommend Harry Potter. Although it is not as advanced, it is a very nice book series. For all my “i’ve already read harry potter” fans, read on!

    Even though I am in 6th grade , I loved it. My parents didn't think I would but it was amazing. Tolstoy's use of description is perfect.
