5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Maginot on July 5 2000
Format: Hardcover
It takes an act of courage and determination to begin reading "War and Peace"-- not only because of its size but also because of the staggering reputation that precedes it. If you have the time to read a 1400+ page novel and the patience to sift through a large variety of Russian characters, then I promise you won't be disappointed.
"War and Peace" is many things to many people. It is a love story, a heroic military epic, a vast panorama of Nineteenth Century Russian society, and possibly the most incisive spiritual essay produced in the West to date. The core component of the story is the adventures of three characters, Count Pierre Bazukov, Prince Andrei Bolkansky, and Natasha Rostova. Prince Andrei is a cynic whose battlefield experience in the early Napoleonic campaigns has left him bereft of his idol, Napoleon. His dour outlook on life is changed when he meets Natasha at a ball and falls in love with her. Pierre is also smitten with Natasha, but his close friendship with Prince Andrei prevents him from revealing his feelings or acting on them. Prince Andrei and Natasha become engaged, but this turns to disaster when Natasha attempts to elope with a man who has beguiled her. Pierre intervenes to save Natasha's honor but the damage is done and the heart broken prince Andrei exiles himself to the countryside.
The lives of each character are irrevocably altered by Napoleon's invasion of Russia. Prince Andrei is mortally wounded at the Battle of Borodino and transferred to a field hospital outside of Moscow. Natasha and her mother arrive in the same location as refugees while Pierre remains in Moscow and attempts to assasinate Napoleon.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Chris Willett (cwillett@math.uiuc.edu) on May 10 1999
Format: Hardcover
This is Tolstoy's longest work, but is very readable. In fact, the book should be quite accessible to high schoolers, although it helps to know a little 18th and 19th century European history. There are plenty of summaries here, so I won't waste time with that. Tolstoy makes the mistake of including too many main characters, which is the largest contributing factor to the length. There are essentially six main characters, one of these being the war. Tolstoy must divert attention to too many places and hence War and Peace is more dilluted than Anna Karennina. Anna is a better book and I would recommend that to be read before War and Peace.

Was really surprised at how good the quality of the binding is. For ~$33 total, that works out to about ~$11 a book, which is well worth it. Font is legible, decent size, now just need to put aside a few months to read them :D

Very happy with this beautiful yet inexpensive and handsome looking set. I own an older copy of War and Peace, which is rather heavy while the print is small, so I took advantage of this attractive offer to read Tolstoy's masterpiece again. You won't regret buying it.

Format: Hardcover
tolstoy went all out to write this;the significance of the whole book is self definition,in which the characters struggle through death, love, war, and the changes they encounter. war and peace is the struggle for the meaning of life which you find when andrey dies(best part of the book)and when pierre's mentor dies
