Audible Editor Reviews

For anyone who's read the work of Leo Tolstoy, it's no wonder his influence is still felt so strongly today, even over 100 years past his death. For those who've abstained from the Russian master for fear of his lengthy novels, the story "How Much Land Does a Man Need?" provides listeners with a much easier, but just as poignant, entryway into his work. With an astute performance, veteran narrator, Walter Zimmerman gives the tragic story of the peasant Pakhom, who's desires outmatch his common sense, a new energy. How Much Land Does a Man Need? is another important listen from one of history's greatest novelists and moralists.
