Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy

The narrative centers on the adulterous affair between Anna and Count Vronki, a young bachelor. A parallel love story involving courtship and fulfilling marriage provides rich counterpoint to Anna’s tragedy.


  • The fiction story Anna Karenina written by Leo Tolstoy is victorian love story which takes place in 19th century Moscow, Russia. This story is a confusing love triangle takes place between all of the characters which shows the major theme of adultry. I thought this book was very good however it is dragged on alot. This book reminded me of a typical high school love triangle between the cheating and loving of others and the effects of cheating on somone who is in love.I think the ones who would like this book the most would be any girl who likes a sappy love story. This book takes a long time to read so i requimend that you read alot per night and not wait untill the last minute to finsh. This is book is one of those that you have to relate and think about in order to understand the situations taking place.

  • Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy is a fictional love story that follows three separate couples that are all connected in some sort of way. The novel is one big jumble of love triangles, betrayal, and adultry. The story takes place in the 1800s in aristocratic Russia. A lot of the book has to do with high society and the pressure that it puts on the characters.
    I thought this book was very entertaining and interesting because of the intertwining of each love story. The story reminded me of the movie Love Actually because, like the movie, it follows the love stories of several couples. The book, however, was very, very long and therefore it was hard to read knowing that you still have 700 pages to go.
    This book is a good read for people who like a good love story but are willing to put a lot of time into reading the entire book.
