ühmt weil er wie unter einem Brennglas die Zeit von bis aus russischer Sicht in einzigartiger Geschlossenheit darstellt Es wird fast ausschließlich aus der Perspektive einzelner russischer Adliger erzählt die sich wechselseitig beeinflussen Es werden Schlachten beispielsweise die Schlacht bei Austerlitz oder die Schlacht von Borodino beschrieben wichtige historische Begebenheiten wie der Brand Moskaus im Jahr aber auch Teestunden Bälle Jagden Konferenzen und Volksaufläufe Dabei nimmt der Verfasser weitgehend eine allgemeine Position ein aus der er a 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 most of it The novel is far less taxing than I imagined I don t know if that s because the English translation goes easy on us non Russians or because Tolstoy wrote it in a uite light hearted fashion I suspect I shall never find that out for myselfPersonally I think a much better title for this book would be War and People Because though an in depth look at history during the time Napoleon had ambitions to take over Europe this is first and foremost about humanity and Tolstoy observes humanity and all its weirdness with a sense of humour and occasionally sadness I don t like to make too many predictions about the older authors some people will tell you that Bram Stoker was a feminist and William Shakespeare was a humanist I think these are uite melodramatic conclusions to make about authors who lived in societies where they would struggle to be thatHowever Tolstoy may or may not consider himself liberal forward thinking a humanist and I wouldn t state that he is any of those things But I think his perception of the human condition in the nineteenth century shows he is somewhat before his time in his ability to see almost every character as flawed confusing but ultimately human He manages to construct a comphrehensive view of humanity and Russian culture at the time in uestion complete with betrayals and scandals and affairs But though the characters may place blame on one another like calling Natasha a hussy Tolstoy appears to remain impartial Those who stray from the conservative path of the nineteenth century do not do so without reasonAnother reason that War and People is a much better title for this book is because there is very little peace going on in here There are times when the battles aren t raging of course but there is always something eually dramatic happening within the social world of Russian high society People falling in and out of love people having affairs wealthy aristocrats dying and leaving their fortune to illegitimate sons It seems to me that there s a constant war going on in this book just sometimes it isn t on the battlefieldAnd oddly enough it was the real wars in War and Peace that interested me least of all They were probably the reason this book got four stars instead of five and because goodreads rating system is about personal enjoyment rather than literary merit I felt much entertained by the soap opera that was the lives of the Russian nobles than by the tedious and repetitive battle scenes There were guns and canons and horses riveting But thankfully like I said Tolstoy s masterpiece is about people than anything else and this is the reason that I saw this book through and enjoyed the journey

    Before I turned the last page of this massive volume which had been neglected in my bookshelves for 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 timesWell in fact it was something else I have a selective

    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 reuires the constant attention of a newborn baby Every once in awhile it needs a little boost and the intellectual challenge of Dostoevsky or Dickens can really work wonders Now I’ve been told that forcing myself to read books I don’t necessarily lik

    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 experiences I'd just hadI'm now re reading this enjoying it immensely and no doubt appreciating it much than I did the first time Tol

    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 narrative propulsion than the excellent but sometimes slow ANNA KAR
