The desperate plight of the strikingly beautiful and effervescent Anna Karenina is one of the most stirring in all of literature. In pursuit of a romance which is deemed elicit by her aristocratic clique, the story of Annas fire and passion being gradually choked by the repressive social standards of the day etches itself onto the memory. And yet, Tolstoys epic is sensitive and nuanced. Annas predicament is contrasted against the experiences of a whole range of intriguing characters. All in all, a finely detailed portrait of a Russian society in flux emerges, as the old ordering principles of social class, religion and morality are thrown into disarray. Kate Lock brings out the often unnoticed humour in one of the monuments of Russian literature. This unabridged recording will surely be the audiobook highlight of the Tolstoy year.

From the Publisher:

A story woven around two relationships: the ultimately destructive triangle of the aristocratic Anna, her husband Karenin and her lover Vronsky, and the courtship and marriage of the Princess Catherine (Kitty) and Levin, a well intentioned country squire beset by doubts about the way Russian landowners should behave.

About the Author:

Reader ALFRED MOLINA stars as Levin in the acclaimed film version of Tolstoy's classic. A graduate of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, he has appeared in many films, including The Da Vinci Code and Chocolat.

COUNT LEO TOLSTOY was a Russian novelist and radical thinker who is regarded as one of the greatest novelists of all time. His masterpieces, War and Peace and Anna Karenina, depict in detailed realism Russian life while also connecting on a deep and universal level with basic human existence.
