This is the only Anna Karenina Kindle edition that includes more than 130 explanatory notes of all major terms, names, places and other specific details of the Russian cultural and historical background, as well as biographical facts from Tolstoy's personal life. Excellent navigation tools let you easily use the contents of the book and its referential materials.Why this translation is one of the best? The Maudes knew Tolstoy and belonged to Tolstoyan circles; they also knew Russian well; and, as Richard Pevear admitted, their English has the "flavour of the period". Initially published in Russian in serial installments from 1873 to 1877 in the literary periodical The Russian Messenger. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anna_Karenina Translation into English by Louise and Aylmer Maude first published in 1918 (Leo Tolstoy.

5.0 difficult to read anyone else once you read Tolstoy
wow! how do one review Ana Karenjina! The best of the best! No words to describe! Read it in Russian. Or it is worth learning Russian so one is able to read Russian classics in their native tongue.

Pardonnez-moi de vous avoir troublée, à chacun suffit ...
