One of the finest examples of the phenomenal capabilities of language, this may be called one of the greatest books ever written. As a reader one finds whatever one is looking for, and the beauty of 'War and Peace' is that one can find anything within.

This isn't "feminist literature". This is a text on the notion of freedom, on language, on examples of living as a woman, on the importance of playing chess every day, and on having a sense of humour. "Cuntlovingly decontextualized, 'a goldmine between your legs' is a wonderful sentiment. Like what you find at the end of the rainbow."
