I did try a cheaper kindle version of this book and the translation just wasn't very good - a bit disjointed. I then opted for this version (the Maude Translation) and it is far superior. I would recommend this kindle version. The book itself is just brilliant!

Anna Karenina is the perfect novel! Everything in it, characters, plot, description of Russian society and mores and morals of the age are polished and alive. Even the mundaneity of Levin and Karenin have their attractions, because such characters are part of reality and form a backdrop for the tragic as well as happy events. The story of Anna's decent to despair, the dullness of her marriage to Karenin, her search for romantic love from Vronsky as an antidote to her bureaucratic husband's solid but cold love is still the best psychological novel ever written. Tolstoy empoyes innovative methods in his writing including the stream of consciousness passages of Anna's final moments, I think in a way much superior to anything James Joyce ever achieved! The story is timeless an I hope that the new film of the book will make more people read this masterpiece of world literature and love it. This novel was one of the main reasons why I went on to study Russian for my degree. This is an excellent translation, so enjoy the best of literature, even if you don't read Russian.

It's okay. Easier to read on Kindle than carrying the larger book and struggling with small print. However, the translations aren't always that good in this edition. On the whole it is fairly accurate though and the story is compelling. As with most Kindle editions of classics, there are misprints and spelling mistakes - such a pity, but fortunately not too many this time.

Downloading books on a kindle is so easy, thank goodness. I wanted to read this book having seen the trailers for the recent film however, I really didn't want to carry around a large book and so putting it on the kindle was the ideal option. The draw back however is that in trying to refer back to earlier pages (at the start of the book you have a list of characters which also explain who is related to who.) it is then complicated to get back to the last page read. Perhaps I need a little more practice on this, however a paper book is so much easier to do this.

I am only 22% through the book and I am really enjoying it so far, it's not as 'heavy' as I thought it would be. The story so far is of forbidden love, how Anna is pursued by Vronsky even though she married. She falls for him and so the turmoil starts...

The book also gives us and insight into what life was like in 1800's Russia, which is something I knew very little of. Further more after reading the short biography of Tolstoy (at the start of this book) you can see how he has used elements of himself in his male characters, Levin I think being the man he strives to be, working hard on his land not just for himself but for the good of all. Trying always to do the right thing be a good person. Vronsky who is more like the 'young' Tolstoy, a military man, out to satisfy himself, thinking little of others feelings we see this in the way Vronsky treats Kitty.

If you like a good love story with a good smattering of history thrown in, along with a host of supporting characters with their own little stories this is the book for you. This is a 'readable' book, not too heavy.

This is not so much a comment on the novel than the download. It seems to download without an extension to the file and my Kindle said it was unreadable. After quite a bit of fiddling around, I added a mobi extension and an azw3 extension and put them both on my Kindle. I'm not sure which file made it work in the end, but one of them did the trick. I've never had a problem with any other book before and use my Kindle a lot. It would be good if it had an extension - however I don't seem to see other customers publishing problems so maybe it was an anomaly. I hope my solution helps someone should they experience a problem.

I don't know Russian, so can't comment on the accuracy but I am finding that it reads very naturally and beautifully. I'm completely hooked and lost in a great masterpiece that also happens to be a very gripping read. Can't beat the price, either.

ThAnna Karenina (Maude Translation) (Carefully Crafted Classics) This is actually the Maude translation and it does use British English. Its amazing how many cheaper editions have the name of a famous translation on them but are something else. This one is genuine and the pictures are nice. The formatting is good. Well worth it.

A very powerful story, brilliantly told. This is a reminder of societies double-standards towrds men and women. Brutal in its depiction of society and in full moral righteousness. You'll recall scenes from this for years to come.
