War and Peace

Hi Readers!

I finished War and Peace recently! I downloaded an audio book version from Librivox. I thought "I could finish this in a month!" when I finished one book out of seventeen in two days. I was much mistaken. It ended up taking from May till September - so much for my estimation:).

War and Peace was a pretty amazing book. The plot was quite gripping and the history was interesting. And boy if I did a line graph for the characters of how much I like them it would go from middling, to a sudden dive, then a peak, then a dip, and on, and on, and on.

I would recommend War and Peace to people who like to read and who also like the kind of french aristocracy type of story (Russian, not French though (not much of a difference)).
If you liked Les Miserables then you'll probably like War and Peace. (And vice versa)

I can't wait for 2016, BBC is doing a TV series for it :D

By the way, I won't be writing any post for the next two weeks, though I will still respond to comments and such.

Thanks for reading!


  1. War and, I think that's on my 'list of books to read'. Now I want to read it immediately!

  2. I've always wanted to read War and Peace. I might add it to my list for next year, since I'm a bit behind my reading schedule right now, and it'll probably take me a long time to read! I actually have never read Les Miserable either, but that's on my list as well. :) Thanks for the recommendation!

    1. Sorry I took so long to publish your comment, I've been away.
      I hope you enjoy Les Mis and War and Peace ;)
