Anna Karenina is a marathon read: you have to keep going, and going, and going with the endurance of the Energizer bunny, but the rewards are many to him who perseveres. Some scenes are amazingly well done, especially the parts involving Anna Karenina, her uninvited visit to see her son, and her tragic demise into jealously, panic attacks, and suicide. Anna and Count Vronski’s story is a downward spiral: the wages of sin bring forth so much hurt, loss, and death for themselves and everyone who i...more

iI really am not liking anna
Reading Tolstoy helped immensely with understanding how important paragraph transitions are in good, linear, narrative writing. I write in a fragmented style that's just hard to read. I learned more about not abruptly jumping from scene to scene, by hinting about each paragraph's future. I think more about where to end a paragraph and where to start the next one now.
Will it ever end? Their lives just keep going forever. I like it, but feel like I will probably be reading it for the rest of my life.

I've finally finished. Right now, I think I like Dostoyevsky better. Anna was more about daily life and the trials people face, but I like a little bit more story to go along with it.

It definitely took me a long time to read but I really enjoyed it. Unlike many other books, I have vivid recollections of sections of the book long after having read it. It encourages me to read other classics.
Et av disse underlige sammentreffene: Akkurat når jeg begynner å lese dette 140 år gamle verket, finner Die Zeit det for godt å anbefale det (pga en ny tysk oversettelse).

Inilah karya besar Leo Tolstoi tentang perselingkuhan. Di tengah-tengah maraknya perselingkuhan sekarang ini, buku ini akan memperluas pandangan kita mengenai cinta, perkawinan, dan keluarga.

A lot of the drama in the climax was a little frustrating to me, and I would prefer a different ending. All in all, I'd still recommend this to someone who enjoys this writing style.
There's only one real love in whole universe and that's the Love of God. Only in God one can trust forever .

One will be fed up with anything else in this world.
