This book should be obligatory reading for all leaders that are thinking of starting a war. Tolstoy dissects, with vivid detail, the consequences of arrogance and lack of understanding that so often cause the deaths of thousands of men.
The characters are very real, and, because the book is so long, become almost acquaintances.
I strongly recommend this audiobook. The reader is great, and really keeps you wanting to come back for more.
Hard to say what I liked best about this book. The story is great, the writing is fantastic, the reader excellent. I recommend enthusiastically!
This is probably the most passionate love story I have ever read - of course written in nineteenth century manner. There is plenty of hearlessness and cruelty but deep passion is the undercurrent that moves the book. You may not like the characters, but the intensity of feeling will bowl you over. If you like that, this is the book for you.
I really, really wanted to hear this audiobook, but the quality of the recording was so bad I had to give up. I hope that Audible finds a new version, as this is a book that deserves to be heard...
I really wanted to listen to this book, but the audio quality was prohibitive...
I hope that audible will find a better recording at some point, as this is great book.
