"One of the greatest love stories in world literature" (Vladimir Nabokov)
"Tolstoy's historical and human sweep is breathtaking. His vision, humanity and his knowledge that love and pain are at the heart of life is the most important of all the profound truths revealed in this great novel" (Jonathan Dimbleby)
"In Anna Karenina, Tolstoy got totally inside the mind of a woman who is prepared to lose everything for the sake of man and who is so much in love that she commits suicide. I don't like her as a woman, but I think it is a brilliant portrait, unequalled in literature" (Amanda Craig Independent)
"I've read and re-read this novel and every time I find another layer in the story" (Philippa Gregory)
"I first read Anna Karenina 20 years ago when travelling across the Peruvian desert on a long bus journey, and it has stayed with me ever since" (Hugh Thomson Independent) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
'The greatest love story I've ever read' Andrew Davies --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.See all Product description

Obviously, this version is very similar to the earlier one, and this is a great classical story embracing love, betrayal, and contemporary Russian philosophical dilemmas. Some have complained about the complexity and interweaving of the somewhat parallel stories, but the outcome is a classical novel with both depth and breadth.
I have not given it 5 stars because there are a number (maybe 20 in the first 50%) of typographical errors left in the book: these should have been removed. This comment is just me nit-picking and should not put anyone off buying this version.
