A part of Tolstoy's soul is in each of his books and plays so you lways feel connected and empathetic towards the characters in the book. The theme of death and salvation is recurrent in his works, especially in War and Peace where each character gains some profound understanding on life before he/she dies. Do not start with this book if you are new to Tolstoy; rather finish eith his novels and then read this so that you can get a clearer idea about the gradual change in the author's tone and writing style over the years.

Whereas this is not a happy read, it is enlightening and thought provoking. It is worth reading.
