Listener Opinions

    " When Tolstoy tells his character's stories, this book fairly sings. When he lectures on military tactics it's a snooze fest. "

    " Read the Garnett translation. It's less Anglicized. There is an even better revision of Garnett
    The three volume format of the Everyman's edition is easier to hold in bed or anywhere. "

    " The old Signet Classic, 1968 first printing that I read was not listed in goood Reads
    Was Translated by Ann Dunnigan with an Introduction by John Bayley

    I agree, War and Peace is the greatest novel ever written.

    " The best novel ever written.
    I read War and Peace regularly, and I've read several different translations. This is the best.

    " this book was recommended by one of my friends... i have been reading it for the past 3 years and i am only through half. to say its a slow read is understating the situation. its my goal to finish it this year. "

    " I found Pierre Bezukhov irritating and unlikeable. The character I identified with was Prince Andrei. Of course we all know what happens in the end. "
