's review

it was amazing

For years and at the height of his wealth and fame, Tolstoy deliberately struggled against taking his own life as he grappled with what he perceived as the meaningless of life itself. This book is his meditation on that experience. It starts in the first paragraph with acknowledging that by the age of 18 he had lost faith in his church and God. This book is a quick read, very profound. It's as applicable today as it was when it was written almost 150 years ago.
