it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction-general
Read in January, 1976

Anna Karenina is a far more complex, tragic character than Emma Bovary, yet Madame Bovary always gets called a great novel! I prefer Anna Karenina. She isn't insipid or snivelling; she is aristocratic and caught in "an impossible situation" when she must choose between the love of a handsome officer and the loss of her young son if she tries to leave her unhappy marriage to an older man.
