    I was almost at the stage of crying around the end of the book. Tolstoy's spiritual teaching of the reader is a special process. I felt the power of fiction which teaches and explains the divine truth to the humans. This is the power of Tolstoy, this is the power of books, this is the power of spirit.

    A sweet story about what makes us human. "I have learnt that all men live not by care for themselves but by love. "It was not given to the mother to know what her children needed for their life. Nor was it given to the rich man to know what he himself needed. Nor is it given to any man to know whether, when evening comes, he will need boots for his body or slippers for his corpse.

    “People only seem to live when they care only for themselves, and that it is by love for others that they really live.” At least that's the lesson Tolstoy offers us in this otherwise innocuous tale of (Christian) generosity; and usually the Dude abides, but I cannot resist a thought: what is there to stop of us from doing both? I have little doubt that such eminent family figures of our time as Mitch “Grandpa Fun” McConnell and Supportive Father Richard B. Cheney (despite some minor squabbles), “People only seem to live when they care only for themselves, and that it is by love for others that they really live.” At least that's the lesson Tolstoy offers us in this otherwise innocuous tale of (Christian) generosity; and usually the Dude abides, but I cannot resist a thought: what is there to stop of us from doing both? I have little doubt that such eminent family figures of our time as Mitch “Grandpa Fun” McConnell and Supportive Father Richard B. Cheney (despite some minor squabbles), would have few qualms in telling us that they, like Tolstoy's Simon, ultimately live for little more than the love of their “own dear family.” And I'd be inclined to believe them — except I'd also believe, of course, that they equally live for the unmistakable pursuit of power and the thrill of victory, no matter how high the cost (and yes, even the erosion of the American Republic). The unmatchable zeal with which each of these men have approached the climb fails to convince me that they are not really living. In fact, they must have lived a thousand lives; died with each new attack; and lived again with each new victory. And my proposition? They feel nothing but accomplished. So forgive me, Tolstoy, when I question your suggestion that Love is the only real way to live — and again, your conclusion that “he who was Love has God in him, and is in God.” It really doesn't seem so simple.

    The Great Tolstoy knew the answer more than a century ago. Famous and the longest Harvard study on 'What keeps us happy and healthy as we go through life' has spent huge effort and money to conclude. Yet they both have the same answer: LOVE. Amazing story, an expected but still striking conclusion. The Great Tolstoy knew the answer more than a century ago.

    Another gem by a brilliant man. I listened to an audiobook version obtained from Hoopla. At first I was a little skeptical of the narrator, but by the end, the story was so moving this was easily overcome.

    The best part I've read in this book is when the hermit said to the king: "... Remember then: there is only one time that is important—Now! It is the most important time because it is the only time when we have any power. The most necessary man is he with whom you are, for no man knows whether he will ever have dealings with anyone else: and the most important affair is, to do him good because for that purpose alone was man sent into this life!"

    2.5 stars. This was a quite alright book. The stories were a little too violent for my taste but J understand that in the past, teaching was done through punishments and remembering the worst. Today, religion is thought through love and compassion and I prefer it this way. The stories were alright, there were value and respect issues but I don't know if I can hold this against Tolstoy who lived in a different era, a different country and a different world. Overall, I'm glad I read the book, it's 2.5 stars. This was a quite alright book.

    I just wonder one thing. What kind of pain drives a man to write such stories? I know nearly all Russian writers, also Tolstoy himself, had a miserable life but I feel that he was blessed/cursed by his empathy for understanding human nature well, and he used this blessing/curse to convey a message. Yet, can a man still hope the best for the others under those poor circumstances? Well, I guess Tolstoy did it.

    This book is something else. It comprises of, in my opinion, one of the best stories ever written in this century. All of them affected me very deeply and Tolstoy have amazing storytelling skills. My favorite author so far. I can’t wait to dive into his other gem stories, novels. You can comprehend why he is one of the well-known authors.

    Michael, an angel from heaven, is punished by God for not following God’s bidding and is sent to earth. Michael is set a task to find answers to God’s 3 questions, only then can he return. What follows is a heart-touching tale, one narrated from the angel’s perspective. Written in Tolstoy’s classic style, it teaches us just how important is to love, to forgive, to understand, to obey, and finally, not look down upon one.

    This was the first book I read written by the Russian Count Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy, more commonly known in America as Leo Tolstoy. Let me tell you right now, it made a great impression.

Let me tell you right now, it made a great impression. The writing style was actually quite modern so anyone could understand it, and short so that people who get annoyed by having to sit down and read 500 pages at once don’t have to worry about that. The only thing that might make people hate it is that there are religious themes and, spoiler alert, one of the three main characters is actually an angel. But there isn’t any religious discrimination or anything so as long as you’re not one of those people who get angry over the tiniest little things, you’ll be fine. It’s easy to understand, short, and most importantly, has a great plot and moral so it would make a great read for someone who either wants a short, refreshing read or doesn’t have time to spend a whole hour reading. I totally recommend it for anyone of all ages.
