" I enjoyed Anna Karenina far more than War and Peace. Anna Karenina truly proves that Tolstoy was a master of his craft at writing about human nature and all of the subtleties it involves, concerning love, death, living, and purpose. Although each character seems to have three or four names he/she goes by, I was so involved in the book that I got used to it and it became part of the charm. Having mostly Russian blood in me, I appreciated reading about Russian aristocratic culture, as well as the less glamorous but more truthful artist's culture. Following the lives of these characters was funny, exciting, and sad. I think this is Tolstoy's masterpiece. "
