Voyna i mir [War and Peace] | [Lev Nikolaevich Tolstoy]

Voyna i mir [War and Peace]

Neither by its scale nor its structure does War and Peace, a world-famous epic by Leo Tolstoy, resemble a classic novel. There is no love triangle or romantic or social conflict as a plot foundation. Historical scenes and scenes from private or family life are equally important. Still, for many years, readers encountering this classic have found pages that have touched their very souls.

    "The chapters are not in order"
    Any additional comments?

    I loved War and Peace when I read it last summer so I decided to listen to it in original Russian. This book recording is seriously messed up. Chapters and books are not in order and it is hard to follow. Or should I say it is impossible to follow unless you read the book and know the text pretty well.

    "The chapters of the book are not in order!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I could have loved it, but the chapters are not in the correct order and it is very difficult to follow the story. It was a struggle and a fairly bad experience! I have read this book in the past, so I have managed to figure the order out. It would be a waste of time for anyone who was not familiar with the book!

    Please edit the recording and fix the order of the chapters!

    Story
    "Life itself"

    It is no accident that War and Peace has been called an epic novel - events and people's lives unravel with astonishing detail. However how could it be any different when Tolstoy writes about life itself and it is in the detail, as well is in the significant events. I gave 4 stars for the story simply because for me, for all its length, it finished rather suddenly. I understand that the story of the characters was not the primary goal of the novel, but rather the monumental events that took place and the characters were there to serve as an explanation for why the Napoleon invasion of Russia developed as it did; they simply revealed the spirit of the Russian people. However, a reader needs closure and it felt like there was not much of that. Nevertheless, what a story - I would recommend to everyone to read it.

    "Brilliant story and outstanding narrating"
    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved how narrator read the story quite "matter-of-fact"ly, leaving the story to raise all necessary drama and emotions. Very good job done by narrator indeed.
