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.

I was not used to reading such a complex and lengthy book. I persevered and was glad I did but will not read it again.Published on 15 May 2014 by Steve
It is a very interesting book. Yes, a very good classic. I enjoyed reading it and

I found the language in this very difficult and have bought a more modern translation - shame because the detailed information about Tolstoy was really interesting so possibly... Read morePublished on 21 April 2013 by Laine
I would recommend anybody to read this book. If you have no knowledge of the book it will not be as you expect. Give it a go you will not regret it!!Published on 29 Mar. 2013 by Mr Robert Winwright
