Description

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 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 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 home…to everything within us that is fundamental and sane.” ▰▰▰ Download your book directly over Wi-Fi or cellular network and begin listening as soon as the first track downloads.

    Just finished the book. The app worked great as advertised and the narrator was pleasant. FYI, War and Peace is a big novel, which leads to over 60 hours of audio to listen to, but it is worth it!!

    Hyped as the best way to enjoy a book, but disappointed-frustrated by the frequent restarting at the beginning of the chapter or even book and having to refind my place with no help from app. Also about every 30 minutes the audio skips ahead leaving me wondering what I lost. I keep waiting for an update that addresses these issues but none have been offered. I will stick with Audible for now.
