A Gift to Myself

Just got the 3 volume novel War and Peace from Amazon! What at beautiful treasure I ever had! I especially like the "3 volume" part, because when I read Les Miserable it was over 1400 pages in one volume and it felt great inconvenience to hold it, especially for a slow reader like me.

It will take me long to finish it, but I expect a good time reading ahead.


  1. Congratulations, Yunyi! is soooo worth it. Tolstoy had touched my adolescence mind, and left a deep imprint. Esp the fact that he has one/two characters in each of his great novels, that serve as his mouthpieces - breaking molds, widening our visions. I am sure you will love it :)

  2. Thanks SpringBlossoms! I am looking forward to have a good time.

  3. Enjoy it, yunyi, it's one of the great books. The scene where Prince Andrei wakes up on the battlefield after he thinks he's been killed is one of the most memorable in world literature.
