At a glittering society party in St Petersburg in 1805, conversations are dominated by the prospect of war. Terror swiftly engulfs the country as Napoleon's army marches on Russia, and the lives of three young people are changed forever. The stories of quixotic Pierre, cynical Andrey, and impetuous Natasha interweave with a huge cast, from aristocrats and peasants, to soldiers and Napoleon himself.

In War and Peace (1868-9), Tolstoy entwines grand themes - conflict and love, birth and death, free will and fate - with unforgettable scenes of 19th-century Russia, to create a magnificent epic of human life in all its imperfection and grandeur.

    " This is one of those books you get lost in. As it switches from character to character, each one is compelling. I think the mastery of Tolstoy is his ability to make you feel like you are right there, looking over the shoulder of the characters. An amazing read. "

    " Just as good as everyone says, but make sure you have a lot of time to dedicate to it. "

    " Tolstoy is a genius, what more can I say? "

    " This might reflect on me poorly to intellectuals, but Tolstoy's style doesn't do a lot for me. His characters and stories should be brilliant, but his execution loses my interest. "
