I’m reading War and Peace right now. I’ve recently finished part nine and must admit that it is a far different experience than I expected. Often regarded as high-brow and large enough to intimidate even the fondest of readers, I have found it overly-dramatic, trashy, and endlessly amusing. I find Tolstoy’s wry sense of humor charming.
Have you read War and Peace? I’d love to know what you think about it. Hit me up on Twitter @DevourLit and we’ll have a chat.
Like the cover mock-up above? It's the cover for the new Penguin Classics Hardcover release of War and Peace due out in February.
