Reading Challenge Book Review: Anna Karenina
This book took me a lot longer to finish than I anticipated, months in fact. I just couldn't get into it at first, Tolstoy's constant changing of how he was referring to his characters really threw me for a loop and made it hard for me to follow along.
I was determined to finish though and I am glad I did, once I got past the politics I found several story lines that are very easy to relate to for just about anybody. There is a spiritual journey, several love stories, and at the end of the book, at least for me an ah ha moment.
Not just the feeling that I had finished it and achieved something but also that I had learned something about myself along the way. Which is not always something you can say about books these days.
