“Russia in marathon reading of Tolstoy’s War and Peace on web” —

“Russian film stars, a cosmonaut and French actress Fanny Ardant are among 1,300 people reading Leo Tolstoy’s epic War and Peace live on the internet – a 60-hour marathon spread over four days.

The event was organised by Russian state broadcasters and it is being streamed online.

Places that feature in the novel were chosen as settings for some chapters, including the Borodino battlefield, where in 1812 Napoleon’s troops fought the Russians.”
