ANNA KARENINA (MODERN LIBRARY CLASSICS) by Leo Tolstoy

WHY I LIKE IT
Tolstoy masterfully weaves two parallel stories of desire, with two opposite conclusions. The most difficult part of this read is keeping track of the variety of Russian names(and nicknames). But, it's a worthwhile read.

Considered by some to be the greatest novel ever written, Anna Karenina is Tolstoy's classic tale of love and adultery set against the backdrop of high society in Moscow and Saint Petersburg. A rich and complex masterpiece, the novel charts the disastrous course of a love affair between Anna, a beautiful married woman, and Count Vronsky, a wealthy army officer. Tolstoy seamlessly weaves together the lives of dozens of characters, and in doing so captures a breathtaking tapestry of late-nineteenth-century Russian society. As Matthew Arnold wrote in his celebrated essay on Tolstoy, "We are not to take Anna Karenina as a work of art; we are to take it as a piece of life."
