I think that George Gibain did a great job translating Anna Kerenina. I'm still reading it and I think that its great. Oh and if you don't care for war and peace then don' read it. Your just insulting leo Tolstoy!

The bad things... I find the characters' moods in this book to be reminiscent of a pendulum of a clock... swinging very far to the right and then very far to the left. I find them to be overly dramatic in some instances. If it takes four chapters to discuss someone's feelings, then to me, that is overly dramatic.
The good things... I like Levin. That guy is the ultimate underdog and when he does reflect on his feelings, they seem human and not so cold as the others. Anna is selfish and fickle, her husband is selfish and anal, Vronsky is egotistical and selfish, and Kitty is a bit fluffy and OCD-like. I note the contrasts in lives, but my favorite part are the parts about the peasants. They are the most real in this book and the people I would most want to be around.
I wouldn't venture to say this was the best book that I have ever read. It was interesting, but not mind-blowing. Just my opinion...

Wow what an amazing book!!!! I haad read this book when I was younger and just picked it up again. I flew through it and didn't want it to end. I experienced the whole gamet of emotions while reading this masterpiece of a book. Anna is so vulnerable and finds so much solice in Count Vronsky. I love it.
