Publisher's Summary

War and Peace broadly focuses on Napoleon's invasion of Russia in 1812 and follows three of the most well-known characters in literature: Pierre Bezukhov, the illegitimate son of a count who is fighting for his inheritance and yearning for spiritual fulfillment; Prince Andrei Bolkonsky, who leaves his family behind to fight in the war against Napoleon; and Natasha Rostov, the beautiful young daughter of a nobleman who intrigues both men. As Napoleon's army invades, Tolstoy brilliantly follows characters from diverse backgrounds - peasants and nobility, civilians and soldiers - as they struggle with the problems unique to their era, their history, and their culture. And as the novel progresses, these characters transcend their specificity, becoming some of the most moving - and human - figures in world literature.

The chapters are not in order

Any additional comments?

I loved War and Peace when I read it last summer so I decided to listen to it in original Russian. This book recording is seriously messed up. Chapters and books are not in order and it is hard to follow. Or should I say it is impossible to follow unless you read the book and know the text pretty well.

The chapters of the book are not in order!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I could have loved it, but the chapters are not in the correct order and it is very difficult to follow the story. It was a struggle and a fairly bad experience! I have read this book in the past, so I have managed to figure the order out. It would be a waste of time for anyone who was not familiar with the book!
