Worth the price or credit as this narrator is an absolute pro. He expresses emotion so well and the humor of Tolstoy really comes through. I can't wait to hear the second half.
massively parallel history
It's the story of life, from the intimate to the ultimate scope.
His reading was outstanding. His narration never flagged, became tiresome or got in the way of appreciating the book. His pace was just right.
Identification with the main character in relation to some of my own experiences in war and peace.
It would have benefited from some editing.
Neville Jason's reading makes this classic come to life. His impersonation characters ike the old Prince Bolkonski is particularly memorable. I highly recommend this version.
I love War and Peace, having read it three times and each time it gets better. The reader doors a fine job, but how could anyone do ask of the characters justice? a little allowance and imagination are required, but given that, wonderful!
Tolstoy knows the human condition and heart!
When Anatole Kuragin nearly abducted Natasha...OMG!!
There are so many...truly. The accounts of the battles are so real you feel as though you are there.
Only so sorry I waited so long to read this epic classic. It's truly life changing.
I have tried and tried to get through this book, but it just does not hold me. There are too many Russian names and characters. I mostly wanted to read it because I wanted to learn more about Napoleon, but unfortunately this book did not accomplish that.
This was well done with character and plot delineated. Easy to listen to and enjoy. The reader was engaging while not overly treacle.
