Compared to what it actually costs in a book store the price is quite a steal. The quality is great, didn't find any printing mistake or any kind of error. For the book, at first it might look daunting because it has 1232 pages, it is huge. But the writting is so gripping that the pages will be turned quite easily. It has everything history, love story, philosophy.... A classic! I might sound a little favoured but Tolstoy is one of my favorite.
