Lucy Pollard-Gott (fictional100) | 23 comments Thanks, Michelle! Great! I'm going to try the Briggs translation in the Penguin Deluxe Edition with maps, etc. but the Maudes translation is excellent. I loved their Anna Karenina, such lovely prose.

Darlene I have a Random House edition that is newer and an older one from the few times I’ve tried to read this. I think this is a great idea though. This book is definitely on my bucket list of books I want to say I read 😊

Christine PNW (moonlight_reader) | 4 comments I read this in high school during my year long Russian Masters obsession, but I scarcely remember it. I am going to try to read along with this one!

I already own a kindle version of the Maude translation.
