    War and Peace is one of the greatest monuments in world literature. Set against the dramatic backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars, it examines the relationship between the individual and the relentless march of history. Here are the universal themes of love and hate, ambition and despair, youth and age, expressed with a swirling vitality which makes the book as accessible today as it was when it was first published in 1869.

    Story

    War and peace is not a book it is a journey!

    As someone who loves to read non-fiction primarily books on history and military strategy, listening t war and peace was very different. But yet it has changed my outlook on history and life. The questions raised by Tolstoy over hundred years ago are still fresh and makes you stop and think. Neville Jason has done an awesome job with narration I do not think it could be better.

    Overall there are so many moments that I stop and go "WOW". The observations on human emotion at the the time of war and its contrast with peace is vivid and eye opening. I would highly recommend this book!!
