Anna Karenina
Anna Karenina | Leon Tolstoi
Among the greatest novels ever written, "Anna Karenina" details the passionate love triangle between Anna, her husband Karenin, and her lover Vronsky. The triangle is broken when Anna decides to leave her family to follow Vronsky to Italy, a decision that will lead to an ill-fated end for her and misery for those around her. The novel doesn t merely focus on the romantic dramas of its main characters, however; it examines the lives of other characters that serve as a counterpoint to the main action and complete Tolstoy s universal vision of the emotionally charged relationships between men, duty, resignation, and success. This quality hardcover edition ties into the feature film starring Keira Knightley and Jude Law."

I don‘t know if it‘s Maggie Gyllenaal or the story but I can go no further. With 25h 39m to go, I‘m throwing in the towel (for now). This is going on the #DNF pile of maybe, I‘ll come back to it. #audio #christyread #audible

Christyco125 @SRWCF I may give it another shot either as a physical book or with a different voice actor. This one just dragged on. 3w
SRWCF @Christyco125 I can see how this book could be boring as an audio book. It wasn't an easy read for me. Before starting the book, I went online and found a list of characters in order to keep them straight since I wasn't familiar with Russian names. I printed out the list and kept it with me at all times. I think that helped me to follow the story better. I hope you give it another chance. 🙂 3w
DivineDiana Agree with @SRWCF. I also had a printed list of characters. The book is wonderful! I hope you give it another chance in print! 2w

Anna read and understood, but it was unpleasant for her to read, that is, to follow the reflection of other people‘s lives. She wanted too much to live herself.

I was late deciding on my #12booksof2021 so I decided to present it to you in two parts rather than 12. Here is January to June! June was the month i finished reading the whole Sandman series so I‘m listing it as 1 thing since I could never choose between all the books, I love them all far too much. @Andrew65

I avoided this book because I thought it would be difficult. It‘s not. Tolstoy is brilliant but straightforward with his transcendent story of love, betrayal, family and social class. I wish I‘d read it sooner. ♥️

From top to bottom

1. L'orda del vento - Alain Damasio
2. A little life - Hanya Yanagihara
3. From here to eternity - James Jones
4. Anna Karenina - Lev Tolstoj
5. Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell - Susanna Clarke

Did you read any of these? Did you like them?

This is the Little Free Library I hike up the hill to of a Wednes. It‘s the only weeknight I‘m not training for my ballet exam so it‘s like a midweek break. I really look forward to my Wednesdays & enjoy a wine & a read with my stretch after my walk. I also usually go to bed as the sun sets with a pot of tea & a book. I finally start to recover from the weekend before the most tiring part of my week. Not long now before I‘m on school summer hols.

I'm halfway through this reread. Since reading it the 1st time, I‘ve gotten married & had kids, it‘s amazing how different a book can feel when your experiences change. There are so many moments that resonate with me. The Kitty/Levin arch reminds me of Persuasion & Anna‘s story is heartbreaking in new ways when you consider the standard women were held to. Beautifully written with themes that are still relevant today, I can‘t wait to keep reading!

SamAnne Keep meaning to get to this one after finally reading War and Peace last year. 5mo
EvieBee Beautiful picture and edition. Oddly, the Levin angle most intrigued me. (edited) 5mo

You gotta love Anna, but the novel should have been called “Constantine Levin” bc LT seemed much more more concerned with him. Levin‘s “solution” to the problem of living seems prosaic in light of the 20th and 21st centuries. Agricultural bliss. I live in New York. It just doesn‘t ring true.

Why is this book called Anna Karenina and not Levin‘s Thoughts on Farming and Religion? Now I‘ve read it, with help from the audiobook and some skimming. I‘m proud of that, but Russian classics are not for me.

After binge watching the mini series The Beautiful Lie on Netflix recently (based on Tolstoy's Anna Karenina) I've become obsessed with this story. I can't stop thinking about it. I have actually never even known the story before, although aware of the book.
So I've decided to sink my teeth into the novel today. Normally I'd be out at work from sunup til after sundown but once again all of my bookings were cancelled, so another week without pay...

I.be.Stef I didn‘t know about the Netflix series. Gotta check it out :) Did you know there‘s a movie starring Keira Knightley based on the book? 7mo
Curiouser_and_curiouser Hi @I.be.Stef , yes I was aware of the movie but I had been avoiding watching it as I hadn't read the book yet, but then I decided to watch The Beautiful Lie. It's an Aussie series, set in modern day Australia so I was pulled in immediately, being an Aussie myself. Now I'm watching the BBC series (Anna Karenina - 2013) on YouTube. Same story of course with a few little changes and totally different time periods to modern Netflix series. 7mo
I.be.Stef @Curiouser_and_curiouser Wow! I didn‘t know there were so many adaptations! Thanks for letting me know. I need to check them out asap. ☺️ (edited) 7mo

Me parece maravilloso. Lamentablemente vi primero la película (90‘s) y me arrepentí . Sin duda una historia trágica y desesperante en cuanto a la relación de los celos con Ana y Vronsky. Me parecio interesante tratar la vida de la clase alta rusa de aquella época, si eres curioso puedes ir investigando datos y adentrarte en esa cultura, es un libro pesado pero vale la pena terminarlo, ligar la vida de Levin en algunos capítulos es aburrido.

I failed to get through Anna Karenina as a teen cause it was just too long, but I love the movie so much I knew I needed to try again. This time it was a DREAM to read and I barely noticed how long it was. This penguin translation is phenomenal and I really recommend it. The prose was so beautiful and the characters‘ inner worlds and morality felt so vivid, not at all like ‘stodgy Victorian book people‘. Cant recommend highly enough

JenniferP Who‘s the translator for penguin? There are so many translations out there and I find the differences fascinating. 10mo
CrowCAH I too love this book! ❤️Read it before seeing the movie. 10mo
Emilymdxn @JenniferP it was Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky 💜 10mo
JenniferP @Emilymdxn ah, they are doing new translations of many Russian classics. I actually did not like their Doctor Zhivago, but I‘m glad you liked this translation! 10mo
SnowFlower @Emilymdxn I love the Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky translations❤️❤️❤️ I have read Dostoevsky ‘s books by them and they are fantastic! They did a suburb job on Anna Kariena and War and Peace!❤️❤️❤️ 10mo

I got halfway through this 10 plus years ago and gave up. I thought about finishing it several times over the years which is why it was still on my shelf. I think I've finally decided not to bother. Life is too short to spend that much time with a book you don't enjoy. I know the ending anyway. He really could have used a better editor in my opinion. #unpopularopinion

When I was a freshman in high school, we had a unit on debate. I can‘t recall any of the details but I remembered one thing. In order to have an opinion, one must know both sides, as many sides. Leo Tolstoy‘s way of telling a story was very satisfying for me as a reader because he weaved it through the minds of countless characters. Life isn‘t simple. Nothing can be told by the opinion of just one character. I may have come across a favorite book!

Nute Excellent review! You are right, one should never reach a full conclusion after hearing only one side of any story. 11mo
Anchobi413 @Nute Thank you😊 Have you read the book before? I still find myself thinking about this book to this day ! 11mo
