Anna Karenina by Tolstoy is a Timeless Book about Different types of Relationships
It’s the first time I am writing about a book and Leo Tolstoy, his novel it is touching my heart and soul right from the beginning and I just want to share it with you.
It is December, it is snowy and cold, I strongly wanted to read a book that can make this beautiful period even more special and thought came to my mind “Try Anna Karenina”.
My book was printed in 1978, it’s on Russian language, cost was 4 rubles 20 kopeek. I love old books.
Now, every time I am taking a book and my eyes going through pages, I feel whatever I was reading from our modern time are not that great, you can’t even compare, here is life and it feels so pure, people from this story — they are alive. Characters with their inner dialogues, their intelligence, and what language he use to express his heroines, you won’t find there swearing or vulgar, tasteless scenes.
In my opinion, old classics it’s not just for killing your time, it is educating you, it makes you a better person, or gives you opportunities, answer the same questions — what creator give his personages, there is always morality and quality, such quality.
Guys, if you love classics and if you would like to try the Russian world know the classical authors make sure that translation is great, it’s SO important
Bad translation will spoil your experience and you will wonder, what is great about this “great author”?
It took me a bit of time to start this book and now I am thinking “Why”? I tell you, I already prepared for myself his other story “War and peace”, I have good reason to feel it will be special as well.
