91% done with War and Peace

Tolstoy may have claimed the War and Peace isn’t technically a novel, and even I could argue that it’s not one either, yet a character such as Pierre can only exist in a novel.

Pierre IS the novel as much as Russia IS the narrator. Pierre changes the most, embodies the themes of the novel more than any other character and is a total fiction among a cast of real historical figures.

He’s remarkable.
