    Description

    Vladimir Nabokov called Leo Tolstoy's Anna Karenina "one of the greatest love stories in world literature." Set in imperial Russia, Anna Karenina is a rich and complex meditation on passionate love and disastrous infidelity.

    Married to a powerful government minister, Anna Karenina is a beautiful woman who falls deeply in love with a wealthy army officer, the elegant Count Vronsky. Desperate to find truth and meaning in her life, she rashly defies the conventions of Russian society and leaves her husband and son to live with her lover. Condemned and ostracized by her peers and prone to fits of jealousy that alienate Vronsky, Anna finds herself unable to escape an increasingly hopeless situation.

    Set against this tragic affair is the story of Konstantin Levin, a melancholy landowner whom Tolstoy based largely on himself. While Anna looks for happiness through love, Levin embarks on his own search for spiritual fulfillment through marriage, family, and hard work. Surrounding these two central plot threads are dozens of characters whom Tolstoy seamlessly weaves together, creating a breathtaking tapestry of 19th-century Russian society.

    From its famous opening sentence---"Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way"---to its stunningly tragic conclusion, this enduring tale of marriage and adultery plumbs the very depths of the human soul.

    Not good dramatization but an ok reading

    This is one of those "must read" novels because Tolstoy was onto the beginnings of the modern, psychological novel. He creates a wonderful picture of the frothy, frivolous life of Imperial Russian aristocracy and you can see the germs of the Russian Revolution in the political talk among the characters, which is very interesting; the Bolsheviks didn't just jump out of the landscape on October of 1917; the ideas were being discussed long before.

    The reading by Lorna Raver, who is generally a very good narrator, has one flaw and that is she tries to dramatize the characters by using a gruff voice to indicate some of the male characters. It sounds utterly stupid. She'd have done better to simply lighten or darken her voice slightly and not try to sound like Papa Bear. It detracts from an otherwise excellent reading.

    Simply a masterpiece

    The best book I've ever read or listen to. Beautify read. A true masterpiece and a timeless classic. Colourful portrait of the Russian nobility at the turn of the last century.

    This reads like an Us Weekly puff piece

    I love Classic Lit and specifically many Russian classics. Goncharov and Turgenev produced some of the greatest works of all time and are severely underrated. Despite its acclaim, Anna Karenina is unreadable trash. For so many years, I thought I was missing out--this is not worth the read/listen.

    Worth the effort

    I was ready to poke my eyes out by the end of the second-to-last hour, and if Lorna Raver wasn’t utterly fantastic with the voices I’d have lost who was who along with the will to live. But the final hour made up for the hard slog, and was a fantastic finish to an epic that I look forward to having my kids read and discuss in a few years. By then I might even manage a re-read, simply for the joy of rich material woven into a tale of human nature searching for the meaning of life.

    Masterpiece

    Tolstoy was brilliant. His ability to paint a picture with words is nearly unrivaled. Amazing!

    One of the Greatest

    I plan on listening to this book again. In some internet listings, this book was rated as the greatest book of all time. Clearly weaving several complicated personalities into a story, Leo Tolstoy defines fundamental truths in matches of morality—primarily sharing the story of a specific woman’s rationalizations and convolution, as he attempts to explain the purpose and function of society, and ultimately, the meaning of life.

    Story Fell Short for Me

    Obviously, I need to give up on Russian Lit, or at least Tolstoy. I enjoyed this more than War & Peace but this was still lacking.

    Tolstoy did a much better job with depth of character in this one. They were quirky and entertaining for the most part but I ended up getting bored with them after a while. They just went round and round without ever really accomplishing anything.

    I was hoping for more from Anna. She started out such a strong woman. Of course, in the 1870s writing about a strong woman wouldn't fly so he caved to popular opinion and crushed her.

    It's a classic so it's on that must read eventually list but it wasn't my favorite.

    Spannend ,Einfühlsam und Berührend

    Lorna Raver, eine fantastische Sprecherin und eine meine Lieblingssprecherinnen ( so auch in BLOODROOT ) liest Tolstoi's Meisterstück absolut perfekt und brilliant.
    Mit ihr als narrator lebt und fühlt man sich wie ein Teil der Geschichte!
    Diese umfangreiche Familiengeschichte dreier Familien spiegelt die ' bessere Gesellschaft ' Russlands im 19.Jh.wieder.
    Anna Karenina als Hauptfigur die ihren Weg und Sinn des Lebens sucht und gleichzeitig von der Gesellschaft schnell verachtet wird...
    der unbeschwerte Graf Wronskij der Anna begehrt ...
    und der einfache aber ehrliche Ljewin ...er zeigt als Romanfigur viele Ähnlichkeiten mit dem privaten Leben von Leo Tolstoi auf
    Ich habe die letzen 30 min des Hörbuchs hinausgezögert weil ich nicht wollte das die Geschichte zu Ende ist
