War and Peace (Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition) by Leo Tolstoy
War and Peace (Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition)

Severin, January 30, 2013

I really enjoyed this translation of War and Peace. The other copy I own did not strive as diligently to preserve the literary style as this edition does. I do not read Russian, so who knows if this translation is actually a better one or not. Regardless I feel that the meaning behind the work, as well as the readability and enjoyability, make this edition of War and Peace a great winter read.
