may be decades in the future then please proceed Trust me you are not going to remember no matterow compelling a review I 隠れていた宇宙 [Kakurete Ita Uchū] 2 have written If you need Tolstoy talking points for your next cocktail party or soiree with those literary black wearing pseudo intellectual friends of yours then this review will come inandy If they pin you to the board like a bug over some major plot twist that will be because I The Sorcerers Soul have not shared any of those If thisappens do not despair refer them to my review I ll take the eat for you If they don t kn People are going to ave to remember that this is the part of the review that is entirely of my own opinion and what I thought of the book because what follows isn t entirely positive but I Satans Mistress hope it doesn t throw you off the book entirely and you still give it a chance Now my thoughtsI picked up this book upon the advice of Oprah ander book club and my friend Kit They owe me What My Mother and I Dont Talk About hardcore now As does Mr Tolstoy This book was an extremely long read not because of it s size and length necessarily but because of it s content More often than not I found myself suddenly third a way down the page after my mind wandered off to other thoughts but I kept on reading am I the only one with the ability to do that You know totally zoning out but continuing to read The subject I passed over though was so thoroughly boring that I didn t bother going back to re read it and it didn t affect my understanding of future events taking place later on in the bookLeo Tolstoy really enjoys tangents Constantly drifting away from the point of the book to go off on three page rants on farming methods political policies and elections or philosophical discussion on God Even the dialogue drifted off in that sort of manner Tolstoy constantly made detail of trifling matters while important subjects that added to what little plot line this storyad were just passed over Here is a small passage that is a wonderful example of what constantly takes place throughout the book Kostia look out There s a bee Won t Tagus the Night Horse (Beast Quest, he sting cried Dolly defendingerself from a waspThat s not a bee that s a wasp said LevinCome now Give us your theory demanded Katavasof evidently provoking Levin to a discussion Why shouldn t private persons Love Beyond Limits (Among the Fair Magnolias) have that rightNo mention of the wasp is made again Just a small example ofow Tolstoy focuses much on philosophical thought and thought in general than any sort of action that will progress the story further That s part of the reason the story took so long to get throughThe editing and translation of the version I got also wasn t very good Kit reckons that that s part of the reason I didn t enjoy it as much and I am apt to agree with Inochi The Book of Life her If you do decide to read this book your better choice is to go with the Oprah s Book Club edition of Anna KareninaThe characters weren t too great either and I felt only slightly sympathetic for them at certain moments The women most often were whiny and weak while the men seemed cruel and judgemental often than not Even Anna who was supposedly strong willed and intelligent would go off on these irrational rants The women were constantly jealous and the men were always suspiciousThere s not much else to say that Iaven t already said There were only certain spots in the book which I enjoyed in the littlest and even then I can t remember them All in all I did not enjoy this book and it earned the names Anna Crapenina and Anna KareniblahBut remember this is just one girl s opinion if it sounded like a book you might enjoy I Gol Atan Kaleye highly advise going out to read it Just try and get the Oprah edition 840 Anna Karenina Anna Karenin Leo TolstoyAnna Karenina is a novel by the Russian writer Leo Tolstoy published in serial installments from 1873 to 1877 in the periodical The

that you Rembrandts Jews hadn t been told to expect or catching sight of something familiar from a surprising angle You start to trust the abundance of the place and your anxieties that someone else willave eaten everything up before your arrival relax Maybe that simile reveals about me than I d likeMy favorite discovery was the three or four chapters out of the book s 239 devoted to of all things scythe mowing chapters that become a celebratory meditation on physical labor When I read those chapters I felt temporarily cured of the need to Refusing His Second Chance have somethingappen and became as absorbed in the reading as the mowers are absorbed in their work Of course the book is about Anna and Vronsky and Levin and Kitty and Dolly and poor stupid Stepan Arkadyich It s about their love and courtship and friendship and pride and shame and jealousy and betrayal and forgiveness and about the instable variety of Brand Name Dates happiness and unhappiness But it s also about mowing the grass and arguing politics andunting and working as a bureaucrat and raising children and dealing politely with tedious company To put it accurately it s about the way that the Confectionately Yours Collection (Confectionately Yours, human mind or as Tolstoy sometimes says theuman soul engages each of these experiences and tries to understand itself the world around it and the other souls that inhabit that world This book is not afraid to take up any part of The Maiden Dinosaur human life because it believes thatuman beings are infinitely interesting and infinitely worthy of compassion And what I found stirring the book s fearlessness extends to matters of religion Tolstoy takes Swing Trading with Oliver Velez Course Book with DVD his characters seriously enough to acknowledge that theyave spiritual lives that are as nuanced and mysterious as their intellectual lives and their romantic lives I knew to expect this dimension of the book but I could not Angus,

of Tolstoy imself and e looks like what I imagine an old muzhik to look like What is the most important thing about Anna Karenina Is it the first line Happy families are all alike every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way This sounds so true but it isn t really Is it that Anna experiences much intolerance for The Emperor of Nihon-Ja (Rangers Apprentice, her unfaithfulness and leavinger Nora (Sunfire, husband than doeser brother who screws around like a dog Is it Konstantin Levin s attempts to marry into the aristocracy and Sam the Plumber his problem with religion Or is the entire story just Tolstoy s way of seducing the reader into reading the political nub of the story the feudalism that was at theeart of all politics morality and social position I enjoyed the book when I read it

s the little evils the multitude of little faces of unhappiness that Count Tolstoy knows ow to portray with such sense of reality that it s uite unsettling be it the blind jealousy of Anna or Levin be it the shameless cheating and spending of Stiva Oblonsky be it the moral stuffiness and limits of Arkady Karenin the parental neglects of both Karenins to their children the lies the little societal snipes the disappointments the failures the pervasive selfishness All of it is so unsettlingly well captured on page that you do realize Tolstoy must Geheimes Verlangen (Shades of Grey, have believed

overwhelmingly in love that it s In Defense of Food hard not to forgiveim And I love this greyness of each character so lifelike and fullAnd of course the politics so easily forgettable by readers of this book that carries the name of the eroine of a passionate forbidden affair The dreaded politics that bored me to tears when I was fifteen And yet these are the politics and the uestions that were so much on the mind of Count Tolstoy famous to is compatriots for Black and White his love and devotion to peasants thate devoted almost The Color of Water half of this thick tome to it discussed through the thoughts of Konstantin Levin Levin a landowner with a strong capacity for compassion self reflection and curiosity about Russian love for land as well as a striking political apathy is Tolstoy s avatar in trying to make sense of a puzzling Russian peasantry culture which failed to be understood by many ofis compatriots educated on the ideas and beliefs of industrialized Europe He considered a revolution in economic conditions nonsense But e always felt the injustice of is own abundance in comparison with the poverty of the peasants and now Cake Pops he determined that so as to feel uite in the right thoughe Brave New World had workedard and lived by no means luxuriously before The Name of the Rose he would now work stillarder and would allow imself even less luxuryI ave to say I understood Memories of My Melancholy Whores his ideas this time but I could not really feel for the efforts of the devoted and kind landowner striving to understand the soul of Russian peasants Maybe it s because I mentally kept fast forwarding mere 50 years to the Socialist Revolution of 1917 that would leave most definitely Levin and Kitty and their children dead or less likely in exile the revolution which as Tolstoy almost predicted focused on the workers and despised the loved by Count Leo peasants the revolution that despised the love for owning land and working it that Tolstoy felt was at the center of the Russian soul But it is still incredibly interesting to think about and to analyze because even a century and aalf later there s still enough truth and foresight in Tolstoy s musings after all Even if I disagree with so many of Pakistan his views they are still thought provoking no doubts about it Ife Pitch Dark had been asked whethere liked or didn t like the peasants Konstantin Levin would Dont Forget Your Spacesuit, Dear have been absolutely at a loss what to reply He liked and did not like the peasants just ase liked and did not like men in general Of course being a good earted man e liked men rather than The Green Pharmacy he disliked them and so too with the peasants But like or dislike the people as something aparte could not not only because Deadly Slumber - Demon Tales he lived with the people and allis interests were bound up with theirs but also because Atomic Ghost he regardedimself as a part of the people did not see any special

L because of Tolstoy s prose of course because of its wordiness and repetitiveness Yes Tolstoy is the undisputed king of creating page long sentences which I love by the way love that is owed in full to my literature teacher mother admiring them and making me punctuate these never ending sentences correctly for grammar exercises But The Purple Island he is also a master of restating the obvious repeating the same thought over and over and over again in the same sentence in the same paragraph until the reader is ready to cry for some respite This as well as Levin s at times obnoxious preachiness and the author s freuently very patriarchial views was what made this book substantially less enjoyable than it couldave been By the way there is an excellent 1967 Soviet film based on this book that captures the spirit of the book uite well and if you so like The Last Odd Day has aandy function to turn on English subtitles first part is Lord Lightning (Astrology, here and the second part isere I ighly recommend this filmAnd even better version of this classic is the British TV adaptation 2000 with stunning Helen McCrory as perfect Anna and lovely Paloma Baeza as perfect Kitty WARNING This is not a strict book review but rather a meta review of what reading this book led to in my life Please avoid reading this if you re looking for an in depth analysis of Anna Karenina Thanks I should also mention that there is a big spoiler in ere in case you ve remained untouched by cultural osmosis but you should read my review anyway to save yourself the troubleI grew up believing like most of us that burning books was something Nazis did though of course burning Disco records at Shea stadium was perfectly fine I believed that burning books was only a couple of steps down from burning people in ovens or that it was at least a step towards Londons Perfect Scoundrel holocaustIf Ieard the words burning books or book burning I saw Gestapo SS and SA marching around a mountainous bonfire of books in a menacingly lit suare It s a scary image an image of censorship of fear mongering of mind control an image of evil So I never imagined that I would become a book burner That all changed the day Anna Karenina that insufferable whiny pathetic pain in the ass finally jumped off the platform and killed The Bucolic Plague herself That summer I was performing in Shakespeare in the Mountains and I knew I dave plenty of down time so it was a perfect summer to read another 1000 page novel I d read Count of Monte Cristo one summer when I was working day camps Les Miserable one summer when I was working at a residential camp and Shogun in one of my final summers of zero responsibility A summer shifting back and forth between Marc Antony in Julius Caesar and Pinch Antonio and the Nun which I played with great gusto impersonating Terry Jones in drag in Comedy of Errors or sitting at a pub in the mountains while I waited for the matinee to give way to the evening show seemed an ideal time to blaze through a big meaty classic I narrowed the field to two by Tolstoy War and Peace and Anna Karenina I chose the latter and was very uickly sorry I didI Harvest have never met such an unlikable bunch of bunsholes in my life m kayI admit itI am applying Mr Mackey s lesson You should seeow much money I ve put in the vulgarity jar this past week Seriously I loathed them all and couldn t give a damn about their problems By the end of the first part I was longing for Anna to kill Three French Hens herself I d known the ending since I was a kid and if you didn t and I spoiled it for you sorry Butow could you not know before now I wanted The Novice horrible things toappen to everyone I wanted Vronsky to die when Ice Creams at Carringtons hisorse breaks its back I wanted everyone else to die of consumption like Nikolai And then I started thinking of The Predictions how much fun it would be to rewrite this book with a mad Stalin cleansing the whole bunch of them and sending them to a Gulag in fact this book is the ultimate excuse for the October Revolution though I am not comparing Stalinism to Bolshevism If I d lived as a serf amongst this pack of idiots I dave supported the Bolshies without a second thoughtI found the book excruciating but I was locked in my life long need to finish ANY book I started It was a compulsion I Rousseaus Dog had never been able to break and Iad the time for it that summer I spent three months in the presence of powerful andor fun Shakespeare plays and contrasted those with a soul suckingly unenjoyable Tolstoy novel and then I couldn t escape because of my own August and Then Some head I told myself many things to get through it all I am missing the point Something s missing in translation I m in the wrongead space I shouldn t A History of Ornithology (New Naturalist, have read it while I was living and breathing Shakespeare It will get better It never did Not for me Iated every m kaying page Then near the end of the summer while I was sitting in the tent a couple of 7 Days to Live hours from the matinee I remember it was Comedy of Errors because I was there early to set up the puppet theatre I finallyad the momentary joy of Anna s suicide Ecstasy She was gone And I was almost free But then I wasn t free because I still Delphie and the Magic Spell/Rosa and the Golden Bird had the final part of the novel to read and I needed to get ready for the show then after the show I waseading out to claim a campsite for an overnight before coming back for an evening show of Caesar I was worried I wouldn t Collins Complete British Birds Photoguide have time to finish that day but I read pages whenever I found a free moment and it was looking good Come twilight I was through with the shows and back at camp with Erika and my little cousin Shaina The fire was innocently crackling Erika was makingot dogs with Shaina so I retreated to the tent and pushed through the rest of the book When it was over I emerged full of anger and bile and tossed the book onto the picnic table with disgust I sat in front of the fire eating my Heathlands (New Naturalist, hot dogs and drinking beer and that s when the fire stopped being innocent I knew I needed to burn this book I couldn t do it at first Iad to talk myself into it and I don t think I could Into the Garden (Poison Diaries, have done it at all if Erikaadn t supported the decision She d lived through all of my complaining though and knew Tiger in the Snow! how much Iated the book and I am pretty sure she The Quaint Christmas hated listening to my complaints almost as much So I looked at the book and the fire I ate marshmallows and spewed my disdain I sang Beatles songs then went back to my rage and finally I just stood up and said M kay itI tossed it into the flames and watched that brick of a book slowly twist and char and begin to float into the night sky The fire around the book blazedigh for a good ten minutes the first minute of which was colored by the inks of the cover then it tumbled off its prop log and into the Another Life heart of the coals disappearing forever I cheered and danced and exorcised that book from my system I felt better I was cleansed of my communion with those whiny Russians And I vowed in that moment to never again allow myself to get locked into a book I couldn t stand it s stillard but I The Cinderella Moment have put a few asideSince the burning of Anna Karenina thereave been a few books that Happy Ever After Trilogy have followed it into the flames Some because I loved them and wanted to give them an appropriate pyre some because I loathed them and wanted to condemn them to the fire I don t see Nazis marching around the flames any either I see a clear mountain night I taste bad wine andot dogs I Trilogy Collection hear wind forty feet up in the tops of the trees I smell the chemical pong of toxic ink and I feel the relief of neveraving to see Anna Karenina on my bookshelf again Whew I feel much better now goodness me russians are dramatic and i wouldnt ave it any other way tolstoy is a master character creator and although e is very skilled at conveying pre revolution life and society i The City of Woven Streets have found much enjoyment inis characters shoutout to my boy levin than the plot that being said there is a certain complexity in tolstoys method of storytelling there isnt a clear resolution in sight for most of the novel so it left me eager to see what the characters would do and ow the story would play outalso on a side note i am of the strong opinion that leo was on one when e chose the title for this 45 stars Not since I read The Brothers Karamazov Violation have I felt as directly involved in characters worlds and minds FascinatingI wasooked on Anna Karenina from the opening section when I realized that Tolstoy was brilliantly portraying characters thoughts and motivations in all of their contradictory complex truth However Tolstoy s skill is not just in characterization though Sleepover Girls on Safari (The Sleepover Club, he is the master of that art His prose invokes such passion There were parts of the book that took my breath because I realized that what I was reading was pure feeling when we realize that Anna is no longer pushing Vronsky away when Levin proposes to Kitty and later when Levin thinks about death The book effectively threw a shroud over me and sucked me in I almost missed my train stop a couple of timesThat being said there were some parts that were difficult to get through I felt myself slowing down in Part VI I was back in through the remainder of the book once Iit Part VII but I understand Oscar and Hoo how the deep dive into politics and farming can be off putting Still in those chapters Tolstoy s characters are interacting and it s incredible to see them speak and respond to one another It s not only worth the trouble but deep down it s no trouble at all It s to be savored and sometimes we must be forced to slow down and think about the characters daily life as they navigate around in their relationshipsA word about this translation When I was in college I attempted to read the Constance Garnett translation I didn t stop because it was awful I think finals came up then theolidays then classes etc However I never really felt like the words were as powerful as they should ave been Years later the only image that stuck in my mind was of Levin meeting Kitty at the ice skating rink I just never really entered the world of Anna Karenina perhaps my fault than anything However the diction and sentence construction in Pevear and Volokhonsky s translation is poetic and justifies the title masterpiece Through this translation I grew to appreciate Tolstoy not just because e told good philosophical stories but because The Octonauts and the Frown Fish he could do so with utmost subtletly and compactness yes I think Tolstoy is concise Each wordas its placeUnderstandably many are unwilling to give themselves to this book Many expect it to do all of the work But it s an even better read because if the reader works the experience of reading this book is incredibl. л на экраны в году секретов Анны Карениной • Arzamas Тайна невинности Долли Анна Каренина и Долли Облонская Иллюстрация

Лев Николаевич Толстой; commonly Leo Tolstoy in Anglophone countries was a Russian writer who primarily wrote novels and short stories Later in life he also wrote plays and essays His two most famous works the novels War and Peace and Anna Karenina are acknowledged as two of the greatest novels of all time and a pinnacle of realist fiction Many consider Tolstoy to have been one of the world's greatest novelists Tolstoy is eually known for his complicated and paradoxical persona and for his extreme moralistic and ascetic views which he adopted after a moral crisis and spiritual awakening in the 1870s after which he also became noted as a moral thinker and social reformerHis literal interpretation of the ethical teachings of Jesus centering on the Sermon on the Mount caused him in later life to become a fervent Christian anarchist and anarcho pacifist His ideas on nonviolent resistance expressed in such works as The Kingdom of God Is Within You were to have a profound impact on such pivotal twentieth century figures as Mohandas Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr
