Overview

Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy (September 9, 1828 – November 20, 1910) was a Russian writer who primarily wrote novels and short stories. Later in life, he also wrote plays and essays. His two most famous works, the novels War and Peace and Anna Karenina, are acknowledged as two of the greatest novels of all time and a pinnacle of realist fiction.
Excerpt-"Oh, it's awful! oh dear, oh dear! awful!" Stepan Arkadyevitch kept repeating to himself, and he could think of nothing to be done. "And how well things were going up till now! how well we got on! She was contented and happy in her children; I never interfered with her in anything; I let her manage the children and the house just as she liked. It's true it's bad her having been a governess in our house. That's bad! There's something common, vulgar, in flirting with one's governess. But what a governess!" (He vividly recalled the roguish black eyes of Mlle. Roland and her smile.) "But after all, while she was in the house, I kept myself in hand. And the worst of it all is that she's already…it seems as if ill-luck would have it so! Oh, oh! But what, what is to be done?"

I wish the reviews for this book would consist to the Barnes and Noble Leatherbound  Classic I am reviewing for purchase . I am recieving a million e-book reviews. B&N please, please do a better job not lumping all reviews together. We classic buyers want to know if there are problem with the latest editions, translations and font sizes. Thanks.

Barnes and Noble do it again! An excellent product, expertly manufactured and intrinsically beautiful in design. A must-have, must-read book, not a Dan Brown-esque page tuner but high brow literature testamentary of contemporary Russian works. I shipped this product to Malta and it only took 2 weeks to be delivered, excellent stuff!

I have only once had a poor experience ordering with Barnes & Noble as a member. Every other time has been wonderful and this was no exception. I had seen this in store several times and had wanted to get it since it was such a beautiful cover to a classic story and a great classic to have. I decided to treat myself to it for Christmas and am glad I did. It arrived in 2 days, even with the weather delays with shipping and was a wonderful addition to my holiday. Enjoy!

Could someone, who already bought it, tell me the name of the translator for this edition? (hardcover $38 collectible)

Another beautiful B&N book. The ivory leather and Faberge egg theme suits the content perfectly. Keep up the lovely work B&N. P.S. A B&N copy of War & Peace would be a great addition to the collection, and this piece in particular.

The cover of the book was the first thing that caught me - It reminded me of my favorite Yule bauble as a child. When I read the overview, I thought it sounded wonderful, so I got it. It's a tragic story, about affairs and family, mostly. Anna Arkadyevna Karenina married her 20 year older husband Count Alexei Alexandrovich Karenin young, but not out of love, and she finds what she thinks is love in the young and handsome Count Alexei Kirillovich Vronsky; they have an affair, and she gets pregnant. Karenin is of course furious, and takes their young son Sergei "Seryozha" Alexeyich Karenin away from her, but refuses to divorce her, and leaves her miserable. Another story in this novel is about Konstantin "Kostya" Dmitrievich Levin, who wants to marry the young Princess Ekaterina "Kitty" Alexandrovna Shcherbatskaya, who is the sister-in-law of Anna's brother (wow, confusing). So we get to see him deal with his own personal issues as well, which I personally found a little distracting, but okay. Honestly, I wouldn't really recommend this 800-page novel for everyone. I'm usually used to heavy reading, though this was very difficult to read I felt, and I had difficulty in remembering which characters where who - And there are even sentences in conversations in french and german. Though the chapters are very short, only a few pages, so you can get through it. So I would recommend this to adults, maybe specialty interested young adults. Maybe if you liked the movie, and like big books, you should give it a try.

Map: This is the classic Middle Age tavern. Only to storys high, it's set in a large town that travelers pass through quite often. The first floor holds the main room with tables scattered about and a large fire burning on one wall. Not to mention the bar. It covers the whole east wall, with me, Bill, standing behind. Go there is ya want drinks. Second floor houses the rooms. Nothin' more. Other: I've got quite abit of these! ... We are a tavern in the Middle Ages. Before they had guns and what not. If ya want a weapon it has to be a sword, dagger, knife, axe, bow and arrow, spear, ect... You can be who ever you want. Just no nobles. You can be an archer, a knight, a hunter, a traveler, a free lance [Knight for Hire], a assassin [Just don't kill anyone], a warrior, ect... You must be older then 20! Sorry. But you must. If a few girls would like to work for me as servers, then they may. Just come and mingle, drink, eat, sleep, gamble, and fight! Thanks, Bill.

The new leatherbound cover is inexcusably bad. Way too busy, ugly colors, bad design. Was this rushed out because of the upcoming movie? What happened to the clean, simple, stylish covers like Tom Sawyer, Frankenstein, The Scarlet Letter, etc. What an upsetting missed opportunity for the leatherbound collection.
