War and Peace has anyone ever read this masterpieceWar and Peace has anyone ever read this masterpiece Tawanda #review
No I hope I will one day but the sheer size of it I find a bit intimidating and it is a commitment to read it I think. Interested to see what others say about this book
Yes, I read it during January and February
Yes, it is currently my favorite! 🙂
I’d echo Jamie – Probably my favourite book.
Kind of like The Beatles though; it’s a shit answer if someone asks for your favourite…
This is my “laptop bag.”
& the inside flap, which is the first page of “War and Peace” printed onto the leather.
Let them think me pretentious. The Beatles are great, too.
Really enjoyed it!
I have! I didn’t particularly enjoy it, but I’m glad I read it.
Yes. I highly recommend Anna Karenina but War and Peace dragged for me.
Yes. May reread this winter.
Yes years ago – good book!
Read it in college and enjoyed it. I was glad to have the prof guiding us through it. Loved Anna Karenina more!
Yes! will read again one day.
Several months ago, over the holidays. I read the Pevear/Volokhonsky translation
Yes. Absolutely loved it. Was dissappointed when it was finished. The length as a detriment to the book is a red herring.
I read between my junior and senior year. Ugh what a wasted time. That was 40 years ago.
@Darla since then there’s been a very good translation done by Peevner
Yes. Good book to read in colder months.
Well worth reading.
Yes , excellent book
Got so engrossed in the book that I missed my commuter stop more than once.
I’ve been debating reading it
Working on it now
@Christopher LOL, it shouldn’t be work.
A little Freudian slip there I guess 🙂
Yes! It was better than I thought it would be ?
Yes, enjoyed it
Yes. I was a teenager. Started it on a Friday after school. Finished it in the early hours of Sunday morning. It was a quest.
Yes, of course.
Read in its original language. Captivating ?
Unfortunately I cannot speak Russian or French so I have to content myself with the English translation
Excellent (get the Pevears translation if reading in English)
Am now on Book 4 but I think I need to revisit the previous chapters
Yes, first novel I read that made me fall in love with Russian Works
The characters of the novel stayed with me for so long after I had finished reading it…
Yes. It is one of my absolute favourites. I was a bit bereft when I finishedit
Yes it was very good.
Started in 06/2007, finished in 01/2008. Much underlining in this one! 1455 pages with tiny print in this Signet Classic volume. ??
Yes, years ago. Need to read it again with a notebook in hand.
Yes, reading now. Lots of drama.
Read it last year and I’m so happy I did it!
Literally everybody. Otherwise probably wouldn’t be here
