So yesterday I finally succeeded in finishing a book that I have been trying to finish for years. War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy. Now if you read at all or enjoy historical dramas you have probably heard of War and Peace and considered picking it up. Unfortunately, for the average reader, it is a really, really long book. It is actually several average-sized novels combined. Plus two epilogues. In short, it is a really long book and a whole lot of effort to take in. But also an amazing classic that should be read by every reader at least once.
Most of us however do not have the time to take on this kind of book when we are expected to meet our daily deadlines. So I turned to my favorite audiobook site Audible and decided to see what options there were. I found quickly that there was a few old readings of it, but they seemed a bit dry. Finally, I found an Audible exclusive reading by Thandiwe Newton and upon listening instantly fell in love with her performance of this classic novel.
It still took me weeks to finish because I had to listen in my downtime but it was entirely worth it. I strongly suggest that you take a look at this reading and marvelous novel via this link! https://www.audibletrial.com/zavdQG You will enjoy it as much as I did I just know it!
