"Thanks to British narrator Frederick Davidson's performance, it is safe to say
that there will not be a better recording of Tolstoy's masterpiece for some time....the genius
of this book is everlasting. The impressive dialog sparkles with humor and wit, and the vivid
scenes of battle are riveting. An entire universe is created by one of the foremost thinkers of
the 19th century, and Davidson's exquisite narration heightens the perfection of this novel,
regarded as one of the greatest in literature."--Library Journal

Often called the greatest novel ever written, War and Peace is at once a historical war
epic, a philosophical study, and a celebration of the Russian spirit. Noted for its mastery of
realistic detail and variety of psychological analysis, it follows the metamorphosis of five
aristocratic families against the backdrop of the Napoleonic wars. Individual stories interweave
as each of Tolstoy's memorable characters seek fulfillment, fall in love, make mistakes, and
become scarred by war in different ways. Out of this complex narrative emerges a profound
examination of the individual's place in the historical process.

Thomas Mann praised Tolstoy for his Homeric powers: "To read him, to be played upon by the
animal keenness of this eye, the sheer power of this creative attack, the entirely clear and true
greatness...of this epic, is to find one's way everything within us that is fundamental
and sane."

Have you always loved reading but sometimes find it hard to find the time? Theres nothing quite like curling up with a good book but many of us cant do that as much as wed like. We sacrifice this special time because we have so many other things to do each day. Its a common problem and its the reason why people on average are not reading as much as they once did. Audio books bring the story to life just as the storytellers of the past did. They allow you to experience the book in a whole new way; in the way the writer felt and heard it in their head. You can feel the emotion when you allow audio books to let the story come to life.
