War and Peace (Vintage Classics) by Leo Tolstoy
War and Peace (Vintage Classics)

The best book I read this year; one of the best books I've read in any year. From the sweep of vast battles to the fleeting moments of recognition between two beautiful, flawed human beings -- and back again -- the stories Tolstoy captures on the page are as vivid as life itself.
