Last Minute Book Report: War & Peace

After reading for 10 minutes, author Blake Crouch reports on Leo Tolstoy's War and Peace. It's about conflict, maybe?

Blake Crouch, who is best known for writing the Wayward Pines trilogy, which has been adapted into a TV series on FOX, wrote Dark Matter, one of our favorite books of 2016. What he didn’t do in 2016, though, is read Tolstoy’s War & Peace.

We asked Blake, who claims he was very good in school, to take ten minutes and quickly “skim” the 1424-page book and give us a summary of the plot. We have to admire his creativity, though, in coming up with some of the best “alternative facts” we’ve ever heard about Tolstoy’s plot. There are foxes involved.

Watch below and tell us in the comments whether you could do any better!

Read Leo Tolstoy’s War & Peace in order to refresh yourself on the plot, or pick up Dark Matter and prepare to have your mind blown by the happenings in this twisted, mind-bending, psychological thriller.
