Long but worth the listen. Tolstoy uncovers many themes of the late 18th century Russia: love, hate, adultery, farming, agricultural science, peasants, aristocrats, education, career, philosophy, and much more. The reading flows well and listener is guaranteed to get lost in the many plots. There are many characters all of which have Russian sounding names, may get confusing at times; I suggest reviewing the character's names prior to listening.
Definitely a masterpiece, looking forward to listen more from Tolstoy.
