Reading War and Peace: The Effects of Great Art on an Ordinary Life

I made a false start at War and Peace last summer and then picked it up again in December. Last week after three months of reading, I finished it. It was a wonderful experience (I already miss having the book to turn to each night) and I wrote an essay for The Millions reflecting on all the different ways the book came to affect my life.

The essay has since made its way over to Reddit, so if you use the site you can check it out there.
