    More than 200 million years ago, geological forces split apart the continents. Isolated from each other, the two halves of the world developed totally different suites of plants and animals. Columbus’s voyages brought them back together - and marked the beginning of an extraordinary exchange of flora and fauna between Eurasia and the Americas.

    If you could sum up 1493 in three words, what would they be?

    Anna Karenina seems to have everything - beauty, wealth, popularity and an adored son. But she feels that her life is empty until the moment she encounters the impetuous officer Count Vronsky.

    Marcus Vorwaller says: "Beautiful story, amazing narration"
    "Beautifully written novel read by David Horovitch"
    Overall

    Leo Tolstoy's incredible craftsmanship as an author andi his compelling story about Anna Karenina and the other major characters in the novel is expertly read by David Horovitch. Tolstoy's attention to detail in his vivid descriptions of life, death, love, and the society and culture of that time in Russia illustrate just what an incredible master of the art of writing he was. I hated for it to end and have been recommending this audible edition to all my friends.
