"War and Peace" was originally titled "War! What is it Good For?".

I for one am thankful for the Consumerist. These hucksters at Target (indeed a telling name for this retailer) are simply leveraging an upcoming movie to expose our naive populace to works of fiction that are MORE THAN 30 YEARS OLD!

Imagine if someone - a child, perhaps - had purchased and read this book thinking that Tolstoy was the next Danielle Steel or Dean Koontz. Who if not the Consumerist will protect us from this chicanery?

Bravo Consumerist, bravo. Stay ever vigilant in your watchtowers. We need you more than ever.

I recommend the works of Edmund Wells (Grate Expectations, David Coperfield, & Knickerless Knickleby), & Charles Dikkens the well-known Dutch author (Rarnaby Budge).

Abacus9: aerojockey: Tolstoy didn't write Les Miserable, dumbassmitter. That was Alexandre Dumas.

No, Dumas wrote Moby Dick. Tolstoy wrote Crime and Punishment.


*Doink Doink* That show was my favorite.

free_waffles: No, H.G. Wells was the director, Orson was the writer. Orson Welles also wrote that one, Invisible Man about the angry black kid.


Invisible Man, you say....

I'm outraged, OUTRAGED, I say, that Target is adding to the decline in public morality by stocking on its bookshelves supposed "literature" such Anna Karenina, which is little more than a handbook of adultery and its consequences, namely suicidal behaviour.

For shame, Target, for shame.

Wat? I must be missing something.

Yes... namely, that Les Miserables was a Victor Hugo work and does not appear in the above photograph.

/Unless I'm missing something now.
