Anna Karenina is a novel by the Russian writer Leo Tolstoy, published in the 1870s, although it was first published in the complete form years later. Anna Karenina is widely considered as a pinnacle in realist fiction. Dostoevsky stated it was "flawless as a work of art". The novel was translated into many languages and adapted into film many times in different countries.

Dolores M. Koch - Criticas

Originally written in 1875, this is one of the most distinguished classic works of world literature. Several films, dramas, and ballets have been based on Tolstoi s (as spelled in Spanish) intense, passionate love story. Ana, one of the most notable literary characters ever created, is married to a Russian minister but falls in love with Count Vronski, a rich and handsome young army officer. Against society s norms, she abandons her husband and son, with dire results. In this excellent recording, the story is fully dramatized by a group of actors: Milagros del Valle is Ana, and FonoLibro s Arquimedes Rivero is Vronski. Their voices are appropriate and devoid of regional accents. With background music and narration that shows the full emotional style of a radionovela (radio soap operas), this audio is an easy way to get to know this perennial classic. Recommended for bookstores and public libraries. Dolores M. Koch, New York City
