Books #13 War and Peace

War and Peace. Beyond being REALLY long, it’s also REALLY good. The only complaint I had with it was Tolstoy’s insistence on plugging in several essays on the nature of history/ free will, etc. In theory, they’re interesting, it’s just after a while they become just too numerous and too lengthy. Other than that, it’s just an amazing work full of… basically everything. If you were an alien looking to read one book in order to learn about humans, this might be the best candidate, since it practically touches every aspect of the human condition. Great stuff.

I’m going to read some short books for a little while.
