My first Tolstoy.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I was prompted to try Tolstoy based on the Mini-series "Genius" where I learned that Einstein and his wife, Elsa, were devotees of this great Russian writer. I wasn't ready for 71 hour War And Peace so I found this magnificent short story, 33 minutes of pure Genius.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I have been looking for God all the time. Yesterday I gave 5 bucks to a homeless man. First time, I swear, and it wasn't until I saw rhe homeless man that compelled me to reach for my wallet as a result of this great story.

Any additional comments?

I don't think I'm ready for W&P, yet!
