Grandiosa epopea storica, accorata riflessione filosofica, ritratto di una società in fermento, dramma di amore e morte, straordinaria sintesi esistenziale: ogni definizione è calzante per Guerra e pace, romanzo che si ripropone da una generazione all’altra con immutata immediatezza e commozione. L’intreccio del racconto storico e di quello fantastico genera una rara quantità di grovigli tematici e ideologici che si compongono in un ritmo maestoso, ogni personaggio esprimendo la ricerca di Tolstoj della verità etica essenziale e contemporaneamente stagliandosi come toccante espressione poetica dei caratteri più oscuri e più luminosi dell’animo umano.

So, I know you've all been on edge these past two months, and since I should be studying for the social work licensing exam tonight, it seems like the perfect time to put an end to your suspense. After all my agonizing and the thoughtful suggestions below about whether I should mutilate my gorgeous h Leggi tutto
When I was growing up, the conventional wisdom was that War and Peace was the sine qua non of difficult books: the scope, the length, OMG the length! Conquering this Everest was The Test of whether you were a Man/Reader. I have now read it. Thump chest and make Tarzan yell. Actually, you know chump, Leggi tutto
Before I turned the last page of this massive volume, which had been neglected in my bookshelves for more than six years, War and Peace was a pending task in my mental reading universe knowing it to be one of the greatest Russian or maybe simply one of the greatest novels of all times. Well, in fact, Leggi tutto
Whatever else I am, I am the type of person who reads classic novels out of a sense of obligation. Also, I must admit, out of a sense of vanity. My ego, after all, is as fragile as a goldfish and requires the constant attention of a newborn baby. Every once in awhile, it needs a little boost, and th Leggi tutto
This is one of those books that can be life-changing. I read this as a teenager and I remember exactly where I was (sitting on my bed, in my grandmother's house, in southern Germany) when I finished it. I must have spent an hour just staring out the window, in awe of the lives I'd just led, the expe Leggi tutto
So... I did it. I finally convinced myself to read War and Peace , partly because it's just something everyone wants to say they've done, and partly because one always needs a good excuse to procrastinate during the exam period when I should have been studying. And, you know what, I really enjoyed mo Leggi tutto

In this frightening, isolated time, let me direct you to War and Peace. People resist this book - they do it because it's something of a punch line as a monolithic, difficult novel. But this is one of the frothiest soap operas of a novel that I know of, with far more narrative propulsion than the ex Leggi tutto
Holy cow! I am done! Not sure what to say . . . I feel like I should write a 1000 page review, but I will keep it short. I finished the book while a passenger in a mini-van stuck in horrible Atlanta traffic. The book was not quite as readable as some other BIG books I have read, but still pretty good Leggi tutto
