    Story

    Sensual, rebellious Anna falls deeply and passionately in love with the handsome Count Vronsky. When she refuses to conduct the discreet affair that her cold, ambitious husband - and Russian high society - would condone, she is doomed. Set against the tragic love of Anna and Vronsky, the plight of the melancholy nobleman Konstantine Levin unfolds. In doubt about the meaning of life - a mirror of Tolstoy’s own spiritual crisis - Konstantine is haunted by thoughts of suicide.

    K. W. Lowery says: "Flawless novel, masterfully narrated"
    "Timeless quality"

    Where does Anna Karenina rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This has been one of the most engrossing audiobooks I've listened to. I actually knew the story from a long ago reading, but was still gripped and carried along by the performance.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Naturally, Anna is a favorite character, but so is the quiet development of her son's character. Tolstoy is a master of character development generally, so all the main characters have been drawn deeply.


    What does Wanda McCaddon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It is read with great precision and expression. The Russian names, often so hard to follow in written form, are understandable, and the dialogue read with characteristic voice inflections, which always let you know who is speaking among the main characters.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this to anyone who is interested in being immersed in a great classic for some time. A great winter companion particularly.
