Sensual, rebellious Anna falls deeply and passionately in love with the handsome Count Vronsky. When she refuses to conduct the discreet affair that her cold, ambitious husband?and Russian high society?would condone, she is doomed. Set against the tragic love of Anna and Vronsky, the plight of the melancholy nobleman Konstantine Levin unfolds. In doubt about the meaning of life?a mirror of Tolstoy's own spiritual crisis?Konstantine is haunted by thoughts of suicide. A magnificent drama of vengeance, infidelity, and retribution, Anna Karenina tells the story of two characters whose emotional instincts conflict with the dominant social mores of their time.

This book is marvelous. I felt like i had met and knew the characters although I had no part in their lives. I now understand the culture of the upper classes and even peasants of that ear. Anna is a woman who defies convention and pays the price. Her relatives and friends and those of her relatives are the characters. I enjoy classics, and this classic took me higher than any other I had read before. The story was enligntening on human emotions, religious and cultural history, and political history of russia of the pre-industrial period. Thank you Tolstoy

I listened to this version while reading the more recent Pevear/Volokhonsky English translation. This version is far more understandable. The sentences read more clearly and the choice of words is cleaner. Phenomenial performance by the reader. A great way to experience this revered classic.
