TOLSTOY, L.: War and Peace, Vol. 1 (Unabridged) NAX43312

…the best is Neville Jason’s magnificent 62-hour marathon performance. No other word does justice to the inspired way he projects the personalities of the multitude of characters but also keeps the listener’s attention when delivering Tolstoy’s lengthy essays in the second half of the book. © 2016 The Times

Library Journal, January 2016

This AudioFile favorite from 2007, based on the Louise and Aylmer Maude translation, is read quickly, with a great deal of tonal variation flavoring Jason’s wonderful character voices. His emotion and vitality infuse the recording, helping listeners through the massive production (two volumes on 51 CDs). © 2016 Library Journal
