Lev Tolstoy considered War and Peace his greatest work, which was received with equal enthusiasm by the people of the time. Today the admiration towards the novel is unbroken. Following his hero and heroine’s fate, through passionate love affairs, tragedies, births and deaths, Tolstoy recounts the constantly changing relationship between East and West, Russia and Europe. The leading characters of the family sagas are Pierre Bezukhov, who was once a Napoleon fan but war turns him into a man propagating the holiness of human life, his friend, Prince Andrei, who joins the army in the hope of glory and fame, and the radiant Natasha, who, through love and deception, matures from a teenage girl who blindly trusts her instincts into a grown-up woman. A story of three hopeful lives, three exceptional destinies.
