Tolstoy: Anna Karenina (Landmarks of World Literature)
by Anthony Thorlby
“Anna Karenina is not only one of the greatest literary novels ever written by a master giant of literature but one that contains the flawless writing of not just one great love story but two: one between Anna and Vronsky that ends badly enough with her suicide but the other love story hitching a ride alongside the one that ends tragically is the one that starts off badly enough to rise to heights of great love and joy for Levin and Kitty.
It is a book filled with passages of every day life from the 19 century that easily passes for 20th and 21st centuries because its characters are filled with all the frailties of real human beings.”
