Anna Karenina free @Tantor Media

Written: Leo Tolstoy

Narrated by: Lorna Raver

Length: 40 hrs

(Unabridged Audiobook)

Release Date:30-06-10

Vladimir Nabokov called Leo Tolstoy's Anna Karenina "one of the greatest love stories in world literature." Set in imperial Russia, Anna Karenina is a rich and complex meditation on passionate love and disastrous infidelity.

Married to a powerful government minister, Anna Karenina is a beautiful woman who falls deeply in love with a wealthy army officer, the elegant Count Vronsky. Desperate to find truth and meaning in her life, she rashly defies the conventions of Russian society and leaves her husband and son to live with her lover. Condemned and ostracized by her peers and prone to fits of jealousy that alienate Vronsky, Anna finds herself unable to escape an increasingly hopeless situation.

Set against this tragic affair is the story of Konstantin Levin, a melancholy landowner whom Tolstoy based largely on himself. While Anna looks for happiness through love, Levin embarks on his own search for spiritual fulfillment through marriage, family, and hard work. Surrounding these two central plot threads are dozens of characters whom Tolstoy seamlessly weaves together, creating a breathtaking tapestry of nineteenth-century Russian society.

From its famous opening sentence—"Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way"—to its stunningly tragic conclusion, this enduring tale of marriage and adultery plumbs the very depths of the human soul.

I don't know about you but I am on a mission to get some classics on audio! Every month Tantor Media has a new title for free much like amazon is doing with their "whispesync" deal. For February it's Anna Karenina. I have the title on audible already but I think my version is from a different narrator. It's quite a long book but no matter I'd love to have this on my library!

Get the free audiobook here.

Happy Listening!

Two more freebies!
Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood - Trevor Noah
The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing - Marie Kondō

I know I have mostly audible updates but I have been working on coming back to the website! *queue happy music*

 

I have two more promo codes that you have to redeem today! One is Trevor Noah's "Born a Crime" (use code: ACRIME1) and the other is a self help book called "Magic of Tidying Up" (use code: TIDYUP1). 

 

I want to read Trevor's memoir as I really enjoy his show at Comedy Central. Sidenote: his memoir as expected is narrated by him which is a nice touch. I'm not sure what the other book is about but hey, free audiobook! 

Be quick with both as the offer expires today (1/31/2017)!
