Characters ↠ War and Peace (Timeless Classics Collection Book 3) 106 In Russias struggle with Napoleon Tolstoy saw a tragedy that involved all mankind Greater than a historical chronicle War and Peace is an affirmation of life itself `a complete picture as a contemporary reviewer put it `of everything in which people find their happiness and greatness their grief and humiliation The thing that most people know about War and Peace is that it is long In fact it is very long to the extent that its length has become a byword to describe any other great tome of writing and has passed into the modern vernacular how often do we hear terms such as I was not expecting War and PeaceI started reading this printed version of this and it soon became clear that the sheer weight of the book and I mean actual physical weight rather than the density of the plot meant that my forearms were aching after a few hours I found a good way to counter the impact of the pain in my arm was to intersperse the reading with the Kindle edition and I recommend purchasing both There are literally hundreds of characters in the story and these are listed in the appendices of the book and it is useful to have this at hand to refer to Tolstoy does not make things easy and some characters are known but two and sometimes three or different names and he uses these seemingly indiscriminatelyI always prefer an actual physical book but in this case it was of a need than a want I found that this works best when you completely immerse yourself in the world that Tolstoy describes here and read not only the book but the history of the period and also watch the film and TV adaptations of this epic story I will not go into the actual story of War and Peace suffice to say it is completely epic and you live rather than merely read this classic of world literature Having researched the various translations it seems that this Vintage edition with the Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky is the one that is best regarded for modern readers and is the one to go forIf you want to totally immerse yourself into the world of 19th century St Petersburg Napoleon the heroic Pierre Bezokhov and the beautiful Natasha Rostov I would thoroughly recommended this version It would certainly suit anyone who might be for example cooped up at home for several weeks with nothing to do
