Nedal's Reviews > Anna Karenina
Aug 05, 2011
Tolstoy balances so many themes in this book like ideas about social welfare that are discussed so well that I almost felt like I was reading social philosophy at times. What I ultimately loved and will last as an impression of the book is the characters and Tolstoy's ability to write about the things we think but don't say and the internal debate and false promises we make to ourselves under the influence of certain emotions and circumstances. I think that's why this story is so timeless.

“All the girls in the world were divided into two classes: one class included all the girls in the world except her, and they had all the usual human feelings and were very ordinary girls; while the other class -herself alone- had no weaknesses and was superior to all humanity.”
