  • War and Peace

    Story
    (615)

    Often called the greatest novel ever written, War and Peace is at once an epic of the Napoleonic wars, a philosophical study, and a celebration of the Russian spirit. Tolstoy's genius is clearly seen in the multitude of characters in this massive chronicle, all of them fully realized and equally memorable.

    Diana says: "Glad I finally decided to read it"
    "Ten Stars!"
    Overall

    If you, like me, have never had an opportunity to sit and read this book from cover to cover (it's MASSIVE), here's your chance to finally appreciate its genius. The narrator, Frederick Davidson, is amazing. He was able to perfectly capture the dialects and diction of that earlier era. Five stars! I only regret I can't give him a "10"!

    A new Tolstoy fan is born! I'm going after "Anna Karenina" next.

    No matter how sophisticated or wealthy or broke or enlightened you are, how you eat tells all. Geneen Roth's masterwork, Women, Food and God explores the relationship between how we eat and how we see ourselves in the world.

    A Signature Performance: Tim Curry rescues Charles Dickens from the jaws of Disney with his one-of-a-kind performance of the treasured classic. Our listeners loved this version so much that it inspired our whole line of Signature Classics.
