[Updated to add a strong recommendation for Sergei Bondarchuk's 1967 film version of the book - a mini-series, actually, at 8 hours plus. Great performances, wonderful epic scenes, very impressive book-to-screen translation. I found it via Netflix.]
For a quirky look at the novel and some of the films, see the TV Tropes page.
WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Having succeeded in reading Tolstoy's epic (thanks to the BookCrossing readalong), I'm passing this book on so somebody else can give it a try. I left it on one of the counters near the coffee station of J. Beaner's at around 1; hope the finder enjoys it!
I've read this book in the original Russian. Skimmed through the English translation, but didn't care, so will have to release it again. I have to drive to Michigan through New York State and Canada, so I just might leave it behind in a hotel! Time will tell. Stay tuned!
