It's been 20 years since I read this book but I remember it so well. I was hooked by the third chapter when Pierre goes to see his dying father and his Uncle and beautiful young cousin conspire to steal his inheritance. Natasha grows up in the course of the story, loved by Prince Andre, and she has her own brush with cads and ruinous scandal when she makes the error of eloping with a dishonorable man. One of the most memorable scenes takes place when the Czar has ordered everyone to evacuate Moscow and rather than take their possessions with them Natasha's family loads their carts with wounded Russian soldiers. Pierre later tries to assasinate Napoleon. Full of memorable characters. Really a great reading experience. Don't be afraid of the size of the book. I couldn't put it down.

War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy is a very involving and intricate novel about the struggle for victory between the French and the Russians with more of a focus on the private lives of the Russians. The story is extremely interesting and thought provoking, but you should only try to read it if you have a lot of free time on your hands. If you have the time and patience I suggest that you read this book. This book shows the every day struggle that comes from a war whether you are a soldier, poor man, or rich land lord, and that it effects everyone equally. The book follows numerous people through out the book and doesn't focus on one perticular person, but it does tell what happens to many different people. The story is a very hard to read book and if you don't stick with it and try to tough it out you'll have to start over continually, so if you want to read this book just keep at it and you'll get it. I really hope you'll read it because it is a really good and interesting book.
