War and Peace (Unabridged)
Tolstoy’s epic novel of love and war, in an unabridged performance by Emmy and BAFTA Award-winning actress Thandiwe Newton.
Some call it the greatest novel ever written. Whether it’s your first time, or you’re ready to dive back in, what better way to experience this epic novel than in this exquisite unabridged reading by Thandiwe Newton?
War and Peace is at once an epic war chronicle and an exploration of everything that make us all human: love and hate, ambition and despair, life and death. Allow yourself to get lost in the lives of three Russian aristocratic families, whose triumphs and challenges are every bit as resonant to today’s listener as they were to original readers. Thandiwe Newton inhabits each character with such flair that it is easy to forget that you are listening to one voice.
So cancel all plans, sit back, and let Thandiwe transport you to 19th-century Saint Petersburg....
A Grammy-worthy one-woman performance, embodying dozens of characters speaking English, French, German, Russian and Latin. Thandiwe proves she is the most underrated and under-appreciated thespian in the history of thespianism.
