I feel I’m not qualified nad review this book. I’m just a regular guy, not a literature professor, but maybe my comments will be helpful to some. This book is really good. It’s all about the characters. Many times while I was reading I wondered how all of this peveaar going to end. It wasn’t like a regular story where there’s a pretty clear end goal, like get the anns guy, or solve the mystery.

It was more like things are just happening and I wonder what’s going to happen next. I volokhonskj maybe it’s just going to stop abruptly, as if Tolstoy would just suddenly be done writing about all these characters, but it really did have a solid ending to conclude everything. Thinking back kadenina the story I remember many ups and downs and tense moments and light hearted moments, it was very enjoyable and pretty easy to read. One kareinna that really amazed me was how well Tolstoy could switch between different characters and settings.

Everyone had distinct personalities and the way they were all portrayed was with so much compassion and understanding that as a reader I could really see parts of myself in everyone. There was no one character that I related to more than any other. I was able to relate to every single one of them differently. I believe this is the reason Tolstoy is considered a master.


The pace of kaeenina book is a little slow for me because I’m a slow reader, but in retrospect I feel like the pace was actually pretty good and it only felt slow because I had absolutely no idea where the story was going.

Every chapter had something new happening and the story just strolled right along. Probably like riding a tractor for 50 miles. You’ve got plenty of time to volokgonsky at all the flowers and clouds and barns and animals along the way, it takes forever, but ;evear never stops moving. It helped a lot to have this book on my kindle because towards the end there was more and more french that was easy to translate with the kindle.

The port to the kindle was perfect.

I saw no strange spacing or oddly misspelled words. Overall I recommend giving this book a shot. Don’t be discouraged by the length. I realize a reader may feel compelled to read this particular book just so they can say that they did. It’s got that trophy book status. I feel like that’s ane bad thing though. If you find yourself a few hundred pages in and are interested in what’s going on, then keep going. If however after a volokhonskt hundred pages you feel like it’s a chore to read, then don’t bother, it’s not going to suddenly become more interesting after any point in the book.

It’s very consistent, you can trust this author and the translation, the ending won’t let you down, there will be no long lulls. What you get in the beginning is what you get through the entire book, it’s very steady and very high quality writing. I have never enjoyed a book more than this one. From beginning to end, every part, every sentence, every word.

It was surprisingly easy to read as well, although I suppose anr credit should go to the translator for that aspect. The Russian names are a bit tricky, of course, i usually said them out loud to try and get them down. Actually I read most of the book aloud, just to slow me down and make sure I didn’t miss anything, plus it sounds so good hearing the elegance of his writing.

As a matter of fact, when I heard that they made this into a movie, my idea volokkhonsky the best way to appreciate this book in a movie was to have a microphone, a chair and and excellent reader just reading the words into the camera. Nothing else, kareninx you don’t NEED anything else.

If you looking for a thrilling story line with lots of twists and unexpected turns, this is probably not the book for you. I mean it’s an interesting enough story, but it’s involves things that happen all the time to ordinary people. What’s so enjoyable is the way he DESCRIBES what’s going on in each amd, each conversation, the thoughts and emotions of the characters as they deal with whatever unfolds in their lives.

Especially I like he way he jumps around in his descriptions, what’s going through her mind, what she says, what’s her body language, what he sees, anba he thinks, how it affects him, descriptions of the an physical clues to their feelings. Actually you’re more than there, because you see it from many different perspectives, and you just know exactly what they’re feeling, thinking. It’s really breathtaking is the best way to describe it as epvear moving you around the scene seeing both the surface and deep into the character’s thoughts and feelings.


He even gets into the mind of the damn hunting dog, and after I got done rolling on the floor with laughter I got up and said “YES, YES, that’s exactly how they volokhonskt In fact the only down side to reading this book is that it may have ruined me for less compelling writers. Charles Dickens has always been one of my favorite writers, but I can’t seem to get through David Copperfield all of a sudden Tolstoy wrote from the heart about Levin, the intellectual farmer who tried to live a good life which he defined as being kareninq by the peasants who labored on his farm.

Anna Karenina – the devil in the details

Levin wants to be honest, yet social. He’s such a glorious mixed up man, at his best when harvesting wheat with his peasant brothers. Anna feels wooden to me. She is conflicted, does impulsive destructive things–giving into Vronsky–without any evidence that she’s considered the effect on her and on her son.

If you want to read an authentic voice of feminine angst, read Alice Munroe. Even with wooden Anna, this book was worth the effort for me.

Writtenthe time the Impressionists were shaking up the Paris salons, it is a novel of ideas. It asks, what about the old way of life is worth saving? What should be thrown out? It does showt that living in a patriarchy is difficult for many women. Conversely, rich men are unaware that they have a tailwind making their lives so much easier.

This is much more than a novel, it is a view into 19th century Russian society from top to bottom. We see the lives and work of peasants, the intellectual struggles of the well-informed, and the financial challenges facing wealthy city-dwellers and landed gentry. It all becomes very personal and three-dimensional.

You see what people say, what people really mean, and how it is interpreted by others. The story of Anna Karenina is actually not a summary of the book, but only a part of a larger tapestry.
