Brilliantly written. This is my most favourite story and if I had only one book to bring with me to a deserted island, it would be this one. Tolstoy perfectly captures a woman's essence.

Yet another pretentious writer (look at the back sleeve of the book - he looks pompous too)_and not one character in the book am I able to relate to or find appealing. Depressing. I did not finish this one.
