It's very very long but still good
Worth the effort
Parts of this book flow very fast and others are tedious but it is worth the effort.
Well worth it!!
All should read this famous book. Much of it is stunning and riveting because Tolstoy crafts characters and events that are stunning and riveting. It is a wild roller coaster ride of a novel which turned out to be surprisingly easy reading. Well worth it!!
