I came here to keep in touch with all my friends who left GR after the censorship debacle. I read a little of every genre. I co-blog at Musings of a Bibliomaniac.

Anna Karenina - Leo Tolstoy, David Magarshack, Priscilla Meyer Finally Done!! It's taken me a long time to read this, but I've tremendously enjoyed it!! Anna Karenina might be named after Anna, but it's not just her story. It's about this plethora of unforgettable characters, sketched with excruciating detail, and their ceaseless quest for happiness. People might do everything in their power to find love and keep it, to nurture it and retain it...yet, the basic question of whether they are truly happy is subject to their own fears, expectations, insecurities, weaknesses, and the fundamental need for social acceptance.This is a spectacular tale of heartbreak. But then, how can anything with the words "Leo Tolstoy" on the cover be less than spectacular??
