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.

This is the greatest book ever written. If you have not read it, take the plunge. Don't be afraid of its size, by the end you may wish it were even longer.

BonBon46, January 28, 2010 (view all comments by BonBon46)
An epic novel of how free will and fate move Tolstoy's three central high-society characters through every experience of life while the Napolean invasion of Russia seeps in and then invades each of their lives. It's like losing a friend to finish this 1,400 page book (Anthony Briggs translation) but at least one can pick it up again and again and again (as I have) to re-read so many truly amazing passages. My husband read W&P as I first read Anna Karenina while vacationing in Mexico, and we both felt such fulfillment to be swept away by these masterpieces while lying under a palapa on a white sandy beach and a warm golden sun overhead. The books made the trip one never to forget.

A great book, and a great translation. Everyone should read this book, and have it in their library. One of the best books ever written.
