Format: Hardcover
One Saturday morning about seven months ago, my parents dropped in for a visit; and so to find something to do before lunch, we went to a local consignment shop to browse for kitschy/vintage things. (And whenever I go to a shop of this caliber, I always firstly look for signs of the existence of books there.)

It just so happened that on a bookshelf in the back of the store was an ex-University of Washington library copy of "War and Peace: The Inner Sanctum Edition," translated by Louise and Aylmer Maude and approved by Tolstoy himself before he passed away. Not having read any Tolstoy, I was unaware that there were so many translators and variant translations, but I just knew that "War and Peace" was on my "To Read List"; plus, for $2.00, who could go wrong?

Well, folks, I can't speak comparatively about which translation is superior for "X reason" or "Y reason" or blah blah blah...but I can say that as I've read this book on and off since July 2010, and have finally gotten past page 1000 this week (with about 350+ more to go), that it is probably the best fictional work I've ever read. And since the Maude edition is all I've read, to me it's the best edition.

The development of the various characters and their families over the span of about twelve years is done so well..whether in peace and love and intrigues or in times of war and battles with Napoleon Bonaparte...that you actually begin developing a type of affection for them.

And "War and Peace" doesn't de facto have some agenda hidden throughout its pages in order to influence/indoctrinate unsuspecting readers, i.e. as Twentieth-Century authors were very wont to do with controversial socio-politico-religio-economic topics.

Great book! I'm already half way through and it's listed "in transit". Did I mention quick delivery. I'm really enjoying the story. First time reading this version. Have read 2 others. Best read so far!

It had the extremely useful and removable 12 page Reader's Guide in it, which is the only reason I bought it. I am reading the far better translation by Pevear and Volokhonsky which I bought at Barnes and Noble.

Also, a tiny quibble, the copy of the Inner Sanctum edition which you sent me is green, not red as shown in your website. It was surprising but immaterial.
