Publisher's Summary

A beautiful society wife from St. Petersburg, determined to live life on her own terms, sacrifices everything to follow her conviction that love is stronger than duty. A socially inept but warmhearted landowner pursues his own visions instead of conforming to conventional views. The adulteress and the philosopher head the vibrant cast of characters in Anna Karenina, Tolstoy's tumultuous tale of passion and self-discovery. This novel marks a turning point in the author's career, the juncture at which he turned from fiction toward faith. Set against a backdrop of the historic social changes that swept Russia during the late 19th century, it reflects Tolstoy's own personal and psychological transformation. Two worlds collide in the course of this epochal story: that of the old-time aristocrats, who struggle to uphold their traditions of serfdom and authoritarian government, and that of the westernizing liberals, who promote technology, rationalism, and democracy. This cultural clash unfolds in a compelling, emotional drama of seduction, betrayal, and redemption.

Please note: This audiobook is in Russian.

    "Buyer beware - this is in Russian language"
    Any additional comments?

    Please make it clear on your website that this is a Russian language version. If I had known this I would not have bought it, as I do not speak or understand Russian.

    Story
    "OMG"
    Would you listen to Anna Karenina again? Why?

    No. Great story but once is enough.


    What other book might you compare Anna Karenina to and why?

    one of a kind for me


    What about Vyacheslav Gerasimov’s performance did you like?

    he is pretty good, but sometimes can get on my nerves


    Any additional comments?

    it is incredible how contemporary and relevant Tolstoy's writing is, despite everything....
    And they had us read this in high school? Who in high school can ever relate to this?!!!

    "Very thoughtful piece of work"

    Great piece of work. Many thoughts coming in your head when reading Leo Nikolaevich, two different life stories with pretty same problem. Need loads of thinking
