Excerpt:

"Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.

Everything was in confusion in the Oblonskys' house. The wife had discovered that the husband was carrying on an intrigue with a French girl, who had been a governess in their family, and she had announced to her husband that she could not go on living in the same house with him. This position of affairs had now lasted three days, and not only the husband and wife themselves, but all the members of their family and household, were painfully conscious of it."

- Anna Karenina

Meet the Author

Leo Tolstoy, or Count Lyev Nikolayevich Tolstoy, was a Russian writer of realist fiction and philosophical essays. His works War and Peace and Anna Karenina represent, in their scope, breadth and vivid depiction of 19th-century Russian life and attitudes, a peak of realist fiction.

Tolstoy's further talents as essayist, dramatist, and educational reformer made him the most influential member of the aristocratic Tolstoy family. His literal interpretation of the ethical teachings of Jesus, centering on the Sermon on the Mount, caused him in later life to become a fervent Christian anarchist and anarcho-pacifist. His ideas on nonviolent resistance, expressed in such works as The Kingdom of God Is Within You, were to have a profound impact on such pivotal twentieth-century figures as Mohandas Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr.

Many consider Tolstoy to have been one of the world's greatest novelists.

    TRULY OUTSTANDING - WORTH IT FOR THE CRITICAL COMMENTARY ALONE

    This is truly outstanding. It has ALL of Tolstoy's monumental novels, a great index, as well as first rate critical commentary and historical essay. That alone would be worth th eprice for this volume.

    Highly highly recommended.

    Breath-taking

    The Cossacks, by Leo Tolstoy
    Brilliant ending. I needed some education of the setting and history of the Caucasian war to understand the setting and the circumstances between the Cossacks, the Russians, and the Chechens/Tartars (called Abrecks). It was a comprehensive portrait of the Cossack people in the simplicity of their world that brought the main character Demitri Olenin to a realization of the meaning in life through first a disgust for the society and culture he left behind, onto a fulfillment by the pride of helping others, to the realization of the emptiness of that pride to justify living an empty life, and finally to the realization that love was the answer to fulfillment and happiness and was worth chancing all to achieve that happiness. Even in the defeat of winning that same love in return he no longer denied it as the path to happiness. I found the lack of a so-called “happy ending” to most strongly enforce that though he seemed to lose all again he had in reality gained all in terms of perspective. And the fate of the other characters left unresolved reminds me of the reality of the relationships we end or allow to end without a look back for the knowledge of the futility of it.
    War and Peace, by Leo Tolstoy
    A beautiful marriage of what could have been 3 separate books, into an amazing look at the Napoleon’s rise and fall and the soap-opera of the lives of individuals amidst the history all topped off with an analysis of the fault in how we view history. The multi-faceted personalities of the characters and the in-depth look into each of their soles is amazing in Tolstoy’s ability to move form an outside perspective of watching a day in their lives play out to the inner-most thoughts of various characters in the room in relation to one another and reflection upon their selves. To be able to describe what it is like to be so many extremely different people requires some insight I cannot fathom. How Leo Tolstoy can express each point of view so vividly that you feel as though you are one moment Natasha, the next Sonia, then next Pierre, the next instant Andrew. And to covey it so as that the reader can empathize at each turn what it is like to be that person, and then another. Beyond this he paints a picture of the circumstances of the war so that I felt I could imagine life at this time that I had no real previous grasp of. To feel like you could see the battlefield, Moscow burning, a loved one dying in front of you, men killed before your eyes in the seemingly senseless plunder of war. It held my attention at every second to know how all the characters lives would play out and the culmination was all that could be expected and hoped. And to top it off with such an argument as to the laws that govern life, and particularly history and such an eloquent argument for the inverse proportion of free will and inevitability that it is hard to imagine that life the truth could be any other. It brings to me a resignation to an idea I’ve struggled to submit to. Call it fate and I am tempted to scoff at it, but reason it out to me as inevitability and the skew of perspective and I am ready to submit, weather I like it or not, and I do.

    Tolstoy writes long stories. These classics should be good for a long time.

    To Leo

    If you really like this girl, just tell her. If she says that she does not like you back, at least you tried. It will take you a while to get over her but eventually you will. Are you sure of your sexuality? If you are not, then go for a boy next time!!! But if you are, then you will find a girl who likes you for you!! There is a lid for every pot and you will find your lid!!! This girl deserves to know your feelings because if she does not, she may take your flirting (?) as mixed signals. If you do not like her, then do not egg her on. But if you are POSITIVE that you like this girl, just go up to her and say "Hey ------ (enter her name)!! I really like you...... As more than a friend.... I think that you feel the same way, but I am not sure. Would you please tell me if you have a crush on me?" Or if you are too scared to tell her in person, then write her a note that says 'Hey (insert her name)! Um.... I really like you.... Like as more than a friend. Would you like to go see a movie with me sometime? I understand if you do not have those kind of feelings for me, but I just thought that I would give it a go! Thanks!! Signed, (insert your name)'. If this chick does not like you, then it is her loss because I bet that you are a great girl. I hope this helped you!!!! ~Your Helper

    To leo from~havok3 (aka lj 3)

    Hey leo! I read you problem. Those are really hard to deal with . And belive me, i speak from experience. If your friend really is like that and tries to ask you out, tell her that you think it would be better for your friendship if you are ,well, just friends. If she is the emotional type and starts to cry, use the secret weapon. Say " you are and alway will be my best friend. Don't worry, will still be the same. We will still have the fun we used to have. Nothing will change". Make sure to say this very gently. If you have one tiny bit of anger in your voice, it will only make it worse. Once, i had a friend at school that tried to ask me out on a date. I used the exact wording in the gentlest voice i could. And it worked. As a guy, it is way easier ,but, i am 100% sure it will work. If you have any other problems or questions go to the book magpie warrior and write you problems and i promise i will answer. See you there! : ) ~havok3
