War and Peace is a novel by Leo Tolstoy, first published from 1865 to 1869 in Russkii Vestnik, which tells the story of Russian society during the Napoleonic Era. It is usually described as one of Tolstoy's two major masterpieces (the other being Anna Karenina) as well as one of the world's greatest novels. War and Peace offered a new kind of fiction, with a great many characters caught up in a plot that covered nothing less than the grand subjects indicated by the title, combined with the equally large topics of youth, marriage, age, and death. Though it is often called a novel today, it broke so many conventions of the form that it was not considered a novel in its time. Indeed, Tolstoy himself considered Anna Karenina (1878) to be his first attempt at a novel in the European sense.

    I did it!!!!!!! I did the #ayearofwarandpeace challenge but I finished the two epilogues in one go rather than going a chapter per day. I am surprised that I finished this book and find a good part of the book quite enjoyable to read even the second epilogue. I really cared about these characters, though I may not agree with how some characters are portrayed, and was looking forward to what they are up to. It’s really long and dragging at the end, and the fictional characters all of a sudden I did it!!!!!!!

I really cared about these characters, though I may not agree with how some characters are portrayed, and was looking forward to what they are up to. It’s really long and dragging at the end, and the fictional characters all of a sudden disappeared; but I agree with a lot of the things that Tolstoy was saying about history and power. I like this as an epilogue much more than the bits he throw inside the middle of the war chapters. The constant changes of narrations and the details with those war chapters were definitely a grind to work through this year.

    Although this has been called a blended work, I believe that Tolstoy wrote is as a philosophical observation on history and human agency. You must be interested in that to get through the work, but the rest--the family stories, love interest, comedy of manners--is also charming. Perhaps we can learn something about the Russian ability to persist from the novel. The Garnett translation, with all its old-fashioned idioms, is vibrant.

    This was one of my bucket list books. To write a book this long and keep it interesting, and flow so well, is nothing short of extraordinary.
