War and Peace

Book Review   by:Positron     Original Author: Leo Tolstoy
ª
 
War and Peace. A Classic A Masterpeice A Love story Rostovs adventures Perries philosophy Natashas transformations What is not there in War and Peace? It has deceit, hatred, anger , love , misery , poverty, disillusion, melancholoy, pride and prejudice. A book i read in 3 years. Because it was too much for me as a 22 year old unmarried to really see light of social parties. Bur once i am married i was more intrested in reading war and peace. What a wonderful love story! What a portrayal of war! I really liked reading War and Peace. It is verya real and very dreamy. All those palaces, Russians, Czars, French one can only dream of in their nights. What a deptiction of war in its details. How wonderfully Leo tolstoy talks about the movement of masses and movement of battalions. Who is Napolean to win the war, asks Tolstoy. Militiary genius and Tactical mastery are of no use, where hardly battalions reach their intended destination says he. Leo Tolstoy says it is the spirit in the people which moves the war, not the generals or any particular event or force. I will rate war and piece at 9/10, what it could have more is maps, but event the absence of maps provide such a rich abstraction to details, developing the story further. It costed me only INR 90 in Paperback of Penguin. You can download for free the e-book version. A must read for any novel reader. War and peace gave me courage and confidence, by showing what can happen in life. After living with Rostov, Pierre and Natasha, it is very easy to grasp the wide offerings of life. Pieeres melancholy is wonderful. I really gained reading War and Peace.
