Anna Karenina, a Norton Critical Edition (2ND 95 Edition) by Leo Tolstoy
Anna Karenina, a Norton Critical Edition (2ND 95 Edition)

amphidees, March 6, 2008

For those who need a step by step plot line with lots of action, don't read the novel. But in terms of psychological insight into both a man's and a woman's world view, Tolstoy overflows with precise and sharp metaphors and allegories that are still vibrantly relevant to understanding human relations. All the pop psychology blather such as “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus” and “Women Who Love Too Much” among others, are predated by Tolstoy and in a much more creative, artistic and perceptive format. What I most enjoy in the book is that Tolstoy admires and likes (loves?) his characters, (even the peasants are not mere shadow figures) and they are all complex with valid and believable motives. This is one of the greatest novels of all time, and should be read at leisure.
