  • War and Peace

    • UNABRIDGED (61 hrs and 8 mins)

    Story

    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.

    "Terrible narrator"
    Overall

    This classic book is supposed to be fantastic, but I never managed to find out because the narrator is extremely annoying. He has a combination of monotonous and over exagerated theatrical voice. I guess I will have to read it myself instead..

    The Brothers Karamazov tells the stirring tale of four brothers: the pleasure-seeking, impatient Dmitri; the brilliant and morose Ivan; the gentle, loving, and honest Alyosha; and the illegitimate Smerdyakov: shy, silent, and cruel. The four unite in the murder of one of literature's most despicable characters - their father. This was Dostoevsky's final and best work.
