Una de las mas impresionantes caracteristicas de la obra de Tolstoy es su capacidad para hacer un profundo estudio psicologico de sus personajes. En Ana Karenina, que con Guerra y paz conforma el duo de monumentos que el gran escritor ruso lego a la literatura universal, Tolstoy no usa el horizonte epico sino situaciones domesticas para crear una novela que es casi un poema. La lucha de la protagonista contra un matrimonio sin amor, lleva a instantes de autentica tragedia, en que se destaca el valor humano por el que tanto abogo Tolstoy. Dostoyevsky la considero como una obra de arte perfecta y es un honor poder presentar este clasico inolvidable y lleno de accion dentro de esta serie.

Ana is a good, moral woman, but she simply cannot resist, is not strong enough to resist, this tragic dangerous romantic temptation of the persistent Count. But even though the premise is a very familiar one that had already been done by many authors time and time again, Tolstoy's talent covers it with a depth and freshness that makes this one of the most powerful novels of the 19th century.

    " Listened on audio book. About 40 hours. Glad I finished it because I always thought I should have read it. Think Tolstoy figured out no one would read it if it weren't named after the most tragic figure. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Krista | 1/1/2014

    " Snoozefest. I don't know how anyone can get through the entire book. I sure didn't. I gave up somewhere around Part 6. Too drawn out and redundant. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caitlin Simmons | 11/25/2013

    " Loved this book!!!!! It should have been called Konstantin Levin though, seeing as it was much more about him. Enjoyed every minute of this, although I wasn't super interested in the class struggles and peasant talk. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 eric | 11/18/2013

    " I saw the recent movie adaptation. There's so much more in the book. I marveled at Tolstoy's character development and his acute understanding of people's perceptions and reasoning. My what a great thinker he was. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Guy Haglund | 10/26/2013

    " Much much more than a love story -- this novel (maybe the best of all time) -- purveys an intimate look at every human emotion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Max | 10/20/2013

    " Part romance, part agricultural textbook, part religious and philosophical treaty. It's fun reading if you can stomach it. "

    " I first read this as a teen and was disappointed in it now. The jealousies of the various characters were annoying. I wonder how any young readers feel about it today. "

    " Such a sad and tragic story of a women wed to young to know love and then finds in against the acceptable ways of society. Today no one would bat an eye but back then it was such a huge scandal it left children motherless. "

About the Author
Author Leo Tolstoy

Leo Tolstoy (1828–1910) was born about two hundred miles from Moscow. His mother died when he was two, his father when he was nine. His parents were of noble birth, and Tolstoy remained acutely aware of his aristocratic roots, even when he later embraced doctrines of equality and the brotherhood of man. After serving in the army in the Caucasus and Crimea, where he wrote his first stories, he traveled and studied educational theories. In 1862 he married Sophia Behrs and for the next fifteen years lived a tranquil, productive life, finishing War and Peace in 1869 and Anna Karenina in 1877. In 1879 he underwent a spiritual crisis; he sought to propagate his beliefs on faith, morality, and nonviolence, writing mostly parables, tracts, and morality plays. Tolstoy died of pneumonia in 1910 at the age of eighty-two.
