War and Peace (Revised) | Leo Nikolayevich Tolstoy

Last minute joining the #whiskyandperseverance read along of War and Peace. Hopefully, I‘ll be caught up by the end of the week.

I‘ve always wanted to read this Russian classic, and a chapter a day is the perfect way. Plus I have a whiskey cast, so it‘s almost the law I join in!

Your favorite book beginning with A

Thanks for the tag @MrsMalaprop and @jenniferw88 🤍

It‘s hard to narrow it down to just one favorite book but in the end I decided that I can‘t ignore this classic which opened my eyes to a whole new world: that of the Russian novels.

#AlphabetGame thanks for the tag @vivastory
I know,some don‘t like to read chunksters but if you do, there is a lot to be found here.I read it recently,Tolstoy had a great insight into the human condition, the consequences that can spiral out from an extramarital affair is a main feature of the novel with 8 parts & more than a dozen major characters,I kept a list! In this time of social change, Tolstoy captures universal feelings /motivations.

Amiable I‘ve been wanting to read this one for ages but haven‘t tackled it yet. 6mo
Leftcoastzen @Amiable I started by reading 3 chapters a day ,but the chapters were really short .So I started reading 25 to 30 pages a day. I read multiple books at a time so I felt I needed a system.😄 6mo
Amiable @Leftcoastzen I also read multiple books at a time, so I understand and appreciate the need for a system! 😀 6mo

The fascination Tolstoy has in describing all of his female characters with “beautiful faces and tiny mustaches” is kind of beyond me. Things no one tells you about War and Peace…. #tolstoy #warandpeace #classiclit #canonlit #catsandbooks #cats #catsoflitsy

RaeLovesToRead Awww kitty! 🥰🥰 I forgot about the mustaches! 😄🙈 7mo
Aaronofthe Aside from the life changing ideas about how the world doesn't care about you and you're just a minuscule cog in an immense machine.. I mostly just remember a cop being tied to a bear and thrown in a river.. and a rather sweet marriage proposal.. but it's been a while since I read it.. I could perceive it differently now. 2mo

Last read of January. Overall I liked this book. It was terribly long though. Thank goodness for audio books. I also found this hilarious summary on YouTube https://youtu.be/wE3mwsi3r_M #100EssentialNovels

I‘‘ve been reading Anna Karenina for the last couple weeks. I‘ve always been fascinated with this book so I‘m hoping I‘ll get through it by Friday. Then it‘s on to another #chunkybook with The Lincoln Highway. That‘s my #lastfirst goals.
