Simon Vance is perfectly matched to this classic fiction by one of history's greatest writers. Vance's sensitive and lively performance preserves all of Tolstoy's wry humor and insight into human nature, as well as the breadth and sparkle of these spiritually uplifting, inspiring tales. Though these pieces are meant to instruct, they also maintain full color and presence, thanks to Vance's wise and restrained delivery. The timelessness of the stories is brought into stark relief as we are pulled deeply into each nuanced reading. The recording quality is clean, the narration transparent, so that Tolstoy speaks through the reader as if the author himself is present in the room.
