War and Peace

War and Peace Summary

Perhaps literature’s greatest epic, War and Peacetells an astonishingly ambitious, profoundly personal, and vastly extensive story of Russia in the age of Napoleon. A work of historical fiction that is at times a romance and at times an adventure, Leo Tolstoy’s novel is, simply put, too big to fit into any literary genre. It features a cast of hundreds, yet paints intimate portraits of their intersecting lives as they move between prosperity and despair. The actions shifts back and forth between Moscow, the city of the people, and the decadent St. Petersburg; and shifts from royal ballrooms to brutal battlefields. Few writers have ever attempted to create a work so massive in scope and complex in themes, and none have succeeded quite the way Tolstoy has.

The story is definitely one that you can read if your aiming to go to bed soon. If you’ve got a busy day ahead of you, read it at your free time. If you’ve got time however, that’s spectacular. I personally really enjoyed the book and for other readers who have read the book, I recommend Harry Potter. Although it is not as advanced, it is a very nice book series. For all my “i’ve already read harry potter” fans, read on!55

Highly recommended5 star

Even though I am in 6th grade , I loved it. My parents didn't think I would but it was amazing. Tolstoy's use of description is perfect.55

One of the greatest pieces of literature ever written. A classic anti war book as well as a look at the Russian aristocracy of the early 19th century.55

This book actually seems interesting. However, I don’t think my reading level is this high. I’ll probably try to read this again in two years or something...45
