Often called the greatest novel ever written, War and Peace is at once an epic of the Napoleonic Wars, a philosophical study, and a celebration of the Russian spirit. Tolstoy’s genius is seen clearly in the multitude of characters in this massive chronicle—all of them fully realized and equally memorable. Out of this complex narrative emerges a profound examination of the individual’s place in the historical process, one that makes it clear why Thomas Mann praised Tolstoy for his Homeric powers and placed War and Peace in the same category as the Iliad: “To read him . . . is to find one’s way home . . . to everything within us that is fundamental and sane.”

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book #plumreview If viewing the most recent televised miniseries, please give the novel a chance. The adage that great books don't necessarily make great movies bears out as the book far supersedes anything from the tv version.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meh I may sound like a philistine, but I just couldn't get into it. I did finish it, but more out of just wanting to say I'd read it. I loved Anna K., and like the "society" parts of this book, but was bored to tears with the "war" parts.
