  1. Why not read it, if you have the opportunity and free time? Reading the same work at different ages means paying attention to different things, details, and thoughts of the author each time, which means that you perceive the book differently. Even if you may not understand some of your thoughts, this book is about the main things: family and friendship, honor and betrayal, love and hate, and these things are accessible to most, even “immature

  2. No, you shouldn't. I myself am a teenager and just recently read this work. Leo Tolstoy in his novel raises those topics that are quite difficult for us, teenagers, to understand. We can always admire the purity of Natasha Rostova, the eternal search for Pierre Bezukhov and the search for Andrey, but we will never be able to understand them. We, teenagers, have not yet entered adulthood, have not felt its freedom, have not burdened ourselves with responsibility. Yes, and such a word as love (in the novel on this topic, the writer raises very often) we don't know everything yet.�
    Despite the fact that our education calls us to read this epic novel, I would still start reading it much later.�
    Years so in 25, and maybe 30 with something.

  3. As for books – any book should be read only in its entirety, there is no point in simply knowing the plot moves and names of the characters. When you read a good book, you get a kick out of being “included” in the story

    So just grab a book and start reading. If you like it, please continue,

  4. Definitely worth it. I'm 16, and just yesterday I finished reading this novel. Let's just say I've read quite a large number of books, and very few have been able to impress me, but War and Peace has managed to do it.

    When reading, I often got tears in my eyes from the whole range of emotions that the characters experienced. I especially empathized with Andrey Bolkonsky, whose train of thought deeply affected me. I wanted to be like this hero, who managed to find the light in himself, who managed to forgive Kuragin and Natasha after all the evil they caused. I especially liked the episode with the oak tree in Bogucharovo: only a truly great master of speech can convey the inner rebirth of a person through an ordinary tree.

    “War and Peace” should be read by a teenager who wants to grow mentally; who wants to learn something from the characters (you need to learn from the mistakes they make); who wants to get to know themselves better.

    Read it!

  5. I believe that only if you really want to, you can read, the content is interesting, but it was very difficult for me to read, so I watched the series, which is in the background of the question))

  6. You'll probably have to read – we were forced to do it at school. And to check the result, we arranged tests, essays and added a unique opportunity to get “free” positive ratings by making oral retellings of chapters. Just retellings of the content. To make it clear exactly what you've read. Though without the slightest understanding) During that difficult period of education, I passed everything perfectly, read it, retold it, and… even now I don't remember what it's about. Because then it was misunderstood, because it was memorized. So if you need understanding, then to children (and teenagers, who are also children by the way) it will most likely not come due to insufficient horizons and experience.

  7. You need to try it. If the book doesn't work, you need to move on to another one. Do not immediately try to lift 100 kg, there is no point or pleasure in this. You need to start with what you can do. But it is definitely worth trying to read the introductions and conclusions of the parts, the epilogue can be reread separately from the novel from time to time as an independent work. What you should definitely not do is read in abbreviated content, it will not help either the mind or the heart.

  8. Definitely worth it! I read War and Peace myself when I was 13. And I was impressed. At the age of 17, the book no longer seems so fascinating. I admit that it gave me a lot more useful information when I first read it. One of the advantages of reading a novel early: you will have a better understanding of people's psychology, which is very useful in adolescence. In addition, you will plunge into the culture, history, and peculiarities of life of representatives of the Russian high secular society of the early XIX century, not to mention the simple aesthetic pleasure of reading Tolstoy's masterpiece)
