I’ve always thought this would be a daunting and difficult read – and it wasn’t. It was actually a very interesting look into Russian life during Napoleon’s time. He shows the upper class, lower class, peasants, soldiers of all ranks by weaving an exciting and interesting story. The characters are dynamic and portray Russian society at all levels. Even the names of the characters are fairly easy to follow – for a Russian novel anyway. I was very pleasantly surprised at how enjoyable this book was, and I highly recommend it! (submitted by NB)
