Hi,

It is great to see so many people opting for such timeless classics. Kudos.

My favourite book is a longer one and is on a slightly serious side. The name is
War and Peace- Leo Tolstoy

This book is considered by a majority of critics as best ever novel. Its the story of 3 rich Russian Generations, depicted on the background of the War between Russia and Napolean.

With due respect to Pride and Prejudice which is a great novel, I read Pride and Prejudice just after finishing War and Peace and honestly, felt like reading something which does have no weight. ...more
