War and Peace

Perhaps you read this book in high school or maybe at the university, I did not.  During December 2017, I consumed the book, War and Peace, by Leo Tolstoy.  587,287 words, 30 1/2 hours of concentrated listening to the narration by Neville Jason.  Wow! What a journey.  It’s the most eloquent word usage of any book I’ve encountered.  It is a long, long philosophical story about life in Russia during the period 1805-1812.  Listen to this 81 second clip of one notable point in Tolstoy’s own words by clicking below.

I think you might enjoy this audio clip from the Audible book "War and Peace, Volume 1" by Leo Tolstoy. You can listen to it here: http://a.co/eer0BNb
