Often called the greatest novel ever written, War and Peace is at once an epic of the Napoleonic Wars, a philosophical study, and a celebration of the Russian spirit. Tolstoy's genius is seen clearly in the multitude of characters in this massive chronicle-all of them fully realized and equally memorable. Out of this complex narrative emerges a profound examination of the individual's place in the historical process, one that makes it clear why Thomas Mann praised Tolstoy for his Homeric powers and placed War and Peace in the same category as the Iliad "To read him . . . is to find one's way home . . . to everything within us that is fundamental and sane."… (mere)

    La Lumière des justes af Henri Troyat (Eustrabirbeonne)
    Eustrabirbeonne: Well, Henri Troyat is no Tolstoy of course, and he did not pretend he was : he described himself as a mere "storyteller". Yet some of his fiction is real good, and this "cycle" is certainly his best. And of course, Russian-born Lev Aslanovich Tarasov had in mind the never-written sequel to "War and Peace" about the Decembrist uprising, which Tolstoy initiates in the final chapters of "War and Peace" with his hints at Pierre's active participation in a "society". Would Natasha, already a mother of four in 1820, have left her children behind to follow Pierre in Siberia, as other convicts' wives did?… (mere)

    The Dynasts af Thomas Hardy (CurrerBell)
    CurrerBell: Hardy's "Immanent Will" has much in common with Tolstoy's historical determinism. Personally, I'm in that probably quite small minority that prefers The Dynasts over Tolstoy's novel – partly because I find in Hardy's "The Road to Waterloo" scene (3.VI.vii) one of the greatest of antiwar poems.… (mere)

"El 12 de Junio de 1.812, los ejércitos de la Europa occidental cruzaron las fronteras de Rusia y la guerra comenzó: es decir, se produjo un acontecimiento contrario a la razón y a toda la naturaleza humana."
  joanra21 | Jan 7, 2021 |
This is a very long book. I can't remember when it last took a month to read a book but it is an interesting book. What you get at the superficial level where I live, is a story about humans constantly seeking happiness in a changing world. You also get a lot of Russian history and long rants against historians or anyone trying to explain why events actually took place.

The characters are interesting. There is Natasha whose love of life is so contagious that it can barely be contained. There is Pierre who desperately tries to find a meaning with life. There is Nikolai Rostov who I never quite got a grip on. There is Prince Andrew and Helene and Denisov and Berg and dozens of other characters who all try to find happiness in their own way.

All this happens as the Napoleon wars keep coming and going and the characters get swept with the tide.

Some sentences in the book are in French and my weak school French was not quite up to the task but luckily someone (translator?) had added translations. I guess this is similar to how someone might drop English phrases in a Swedish book today.

War and Peace could probably be an exciting thing for a book club where you discuss where each chapter brings you because there is a lot of philosophy in the book. I do doubt that any book club would sign up for a 1,500 page book though.

A general thought about classics like this. They are often classics because they broke new ground, but objectively speaking, there are less well known successors that are superior in many ways. Not that I can think of anything quite like this but that is probably because I'm not classic enough.

I'm giving it 4 stars for the trip, but the second epilogue, about 100 pages of rants, I should have skipped and almost sank my star count. ( )

I understand that the popularity of this book comes at the price of having 4 interleaved narratives - something for everyone. There's history, action, ballroom dances and philosophy. Personally I could do without the ballroom scenes and the prerequisite amount of suicide attempts but no section is overly long. I found Tolstoy thoughts on war really interesting though his contempt for Napoleon goes quite far (not that he spares the Russian generals either). The fictional parts have Pierre at its centre (with an abundance of other characters) and following him through his coming of age and adult life we see how he turns from a principled young man, through motivated searching idealist and eventually broken by his war experiences into an aimless husk letting life happen to him without opposition (god being behind every action).

Tolstoj verknüpft die Familiengeschichten dreier russischer Adelsfamilien mit den welthistorischen Ereignissen der napoleonischen Kriege und schafft dabei eines der bedeutensten Werke der Weltliteratur.

Anfangs verliert sich der Leser noch in einer Vielzahl von Handlungssträngen mit mannigfaltigen, detailreich gezeichneten Charakteren, doch geleingt es dem Autor, die Erzählfäden allmählich kunstvoll zu verbinden und so ein buntes und sozialhistorisch wertvolles Sittenbild des russichen Adels und des Zarentums zu Beginn des 19. Jahrhunderts zu schaffen. Dem Titel gemäß schildert der Autor einerseits das opulente und ausschweifende Leben des russischen Adels in Friedenszeiten anhand der individuellen Erlebnisse und Liebschaften der Hauptprotagonisten, andererseits widmet er einen Großteil des Buches aber auch den Schrecken der napoleonischen Kriege, die er mit historischer Genauigkeit darstellt und mit erstaunlicher Scharfsinnigkeit analysiert.

The balance between tradition and reform, of the long influence of French culture and simmering Russian nationalism through the course of the Napoleonic Wars is seen through the eyes of numerous noble Russians from 1805 to the end of the French invasion in 1812. War and Peace is considered Leo Tolstoy’s greatest work as it follows the lives of youthful and idealistic Russian nobles as they attempt to find their way in society and the world during times that would be defined by one man who spanned across Europe to their doorsteps.

The saga begins in the Russian Empire in 1805. When Pierre Bezuknov, Natasha Rostov, and Andrei Bolkonsky are first introduced with all their youthful ambition, despite their privileged circumstances, is to find meaning in their lives. Kind-hearted but awkward Pierre, the illegitimate son of Russia's richest man, wants to change the world for the better. The spirited Natasha is searching for true love, while handsome and gallant Andrei, frustrated with the superficiality of society, seeks a higher purpose. At the same time, the French army under Napoleon edges ever closer to Russia's borders. Natasha's older brother Nikolai joins the Imperial Russian Army immediately and matures during the war against Napoleon. Like Pierre, Natasha, and Andrei, he also experiences romantic vicissitudes: despite his childhood love for his cousin Sonya, his impoverished parents insist he marry a rich bride like the superficial Julie Karagina or the religious Marya Bolkonskaya. Having begun with Napoleon's military campaign against Russia and Austria in 1805, the story concludes in 1812 after Napoleon's invasion of Russia has failed and he has retreated and withdrawn from Russian territory. The families at the center of the saga have undergone major changes and lost members, but those remaining have experienced a transformation and a new life, with new growth and new families started.

The sprawling narrative that Tolstoy constructs around his characters and locations varying from Moscow, St. Petersburg, various Russian estates, and battlefields spanning Austria, Poland, and Russia is wonderful. Unfortunately it is marred by Tolstoy’s decision to lecture the reader on his view of history as opposed to other interpretations not only took me out of the book—even though half my reading is history—but allowed me to think about the characters and the narrative he was having them go through resulting me quickly finding them fools and idiots who essentially deserve all the bad things that happen to them, except Sonya who is Tolstoy’s emotional whipping horse. The introduction by Pat Conroy and the afterword by John Hockenberry in the Signet Classics edition are completely worthless and if you get this edition ignore them.

War and Peace is a great book if not for Tolstoy’s narrative disrupting historical lecturing that takes your attention away from large tapestry that he created thus exposing foolishness of his characters. ( )

The novel is not just a masterclass in fiction, Ms Li believes, but a remedy for distress. At the most difficult times in her life, she says, she has turned to it again and again, reassured by its “solidity” in the face of uncertainty.

Tolstoy’s singular genius is to be able to take the torrent of conscious experience and master it. There are countless moments in the book where this happens ...
