Reviews

  • "If you've never read it, now is the moment. This translation will show that you don't read War and Peace, you live it"

    The Times
  • "Reveals Tolstoy in his majestic scope and precision to this reader for the first time, unencumbered by the pidgin archaisms of previous translations, ringing with mastery and truth"

    Times Literary Supplement, Books of the Year
  • "It may sound pretentious, or strange, but I can remember the weeks (three weeks, to be precise) I spent reading War and Peace as a peak experience of sustained excitement and deep delight. Part of the delight was the largeness and strangeness of this world - the sense of the vastness and extremes of Russia, the unboundedness of everything"
