Kudos on finishing War and Peace! I have a lot of respect for those Russian writers (and by that I mean my copies of Anna Karenina and The Idiot are still untouched on my shelves), because those books are huge and written in a way we aren't really used to anymore. At least I know I'm not! Well done on the read and thanks for the review. :)

Thanks :). I guess the translation is the most important aspect of it. I read the Vintage edition. translated by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky, and it´s a brilliant translation with a very modern feel to it. Should you ever consider to read War and Peace, you should pick this one up.
