Engrossing

I tried to read War and Peace a few times but never stayed with it until this performance. The description of war were amazing- you really felt that you were on the battlefield.
I highly recommend.

Brilliant adaptation of very great novel

A superb adaptation, gripping and moving in equal measure. Fine performances from the whole cast, which includes some of the greatest actors around.

FANTASTIC SUPERB ADAPTATION of WAR and PEACE

I love ❤️ this superb adaptation of Tolstoy’s War and Peace which I listened to and thoroughly enjoyed in one sitting. Much respected adaptation true to the book as much as one can in a radio production. Fantastic full cast who gave this story as if it were a film, my imagination was seeing everything as if it was happening before my very eyes. An intriguing long complex piece of historic work, the writer and the actors brought this book to life in a way the films have not for me. I LOVE THIS ❤️ Thank you, so much, that I am reading the book all over again. I was sorry when this production came to its end. This is much better than the latest modern production. This adaptation holds much more of truth, of love, family, feeling and the strategy of wars and humanity, it shows the horrors of wars. This is one I will listen to over and over with pleasure.
