Well I loved this book. I think that if you went with each side story and embraced it, it would be enjoyable and that's how I approached it.

I do think that this book was not named appropriately. Anna was a strong character, but she wasn't the only one that committed adultry and she wasn't the only one who was miserable. I think that this book should have been named something like the word for infidelity in Russia.

I agree with Kelley that the book should have ended with Part VII when Anna killed herself.

Good read. I enjoyed this journey.

I really liked this book, too. It was interesting in many ways and relly gave me an understanding of what life may have been like during Tolstoys time in that area. I could have done with less time spent on the political points and he diverged often when I would want to know what happend next to the characters, but I am glad to have read it. as you both said, the final part was not the best ending. I would have liked to know if Kaenin hooked up with lydia and maybe a little point about what her son was thinking. Other than Vronskys mothers comment we didn't get any womans perspective of Anna's death.
