    I read this a long time ago and I think I was too young to appreciate it. I do remember reading it but I don't remember the story! I will give it another read this summer!

    Love this book! Read it in high school and then again a few years ago in a book club. Real characters that stay in your memory forever.

    It's not about adultery and suicide (per Virginia's comment). It's a book about marriage. In Tolstoy's writing, we have his version of a horrible marriage (Anna), an 'average' marriage (her brother Oblonsky), and an excellent marriage (Kitty). I believe this is an excellent book for any woman to have as a favorite, and if you don't know that, perhaps you should read it (or reread it).

Scott Fitzgerald's widely read classic but none of them scream cool quite as much as this one does. From the yellow backdrop to the monochromatic man to the fact that he's using the damn 'Y' as a cocktail glass, it's an undeniably attention-grabbing image.

Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy - I have this very edition isn't it beautiful?

The story line in this one reminds me of The Time Traveler's Wife. They've also made this book into a cheesy Lifetime movie.

The BFG :) I think I was in year 2 the first time I read this and instantly fell in love. Such a beautiful story!

Although Russian critics dismissed the novel on its publication as a "trifling romance of high life", Fyodor Dostoevsky declared it to be "flawless as a work of art". His opinion was shared by Vladimir Nabokov, who especially admired "the flawless magic of Tolstoy's style", and by William Faulkner, who described the novel as "the best ever written".
