Publisher's Summary

When beautiful, aristocratic, and married Anna falls madly in love with the dashing Count Vronsky, their affair shocks Russian society, tears her family apart, and leads, inevitably, to tradedy.Count Leo Tolstoy's epic story of passion, infidelity, vengeance, and retribution has held readers spellbound since it was first published in the late 1800s. Set against the fatal attraction of Anna and Vronsky, unfolding in perfect symmetry, is another love story - of the melancholy nobleman Constantine Levin and his devoted wife, Kitty. In doubt about the meaning of life, haunted by thoughts of suicide, Levin's struggles echo Tolstoy's own spiritual crisis.

horrible audio-terrible abridgment

This is the most horrible abridging I have ever listed to. Their are audio quality lapses- as if the studio or tape changed. The reader is also very bland. There are huge storyline segments missing. One minute Anna is thinking of leaving, next minute she has her lovers child. If you just want a basic jist, I guess this is for you. It is what you should expect however when 36 hours of unabridged audio is crammed into a little over 3 hours. terrible, horrible I would not recommend.

I actually listened to this books years ago and found it to be one of the most beautifully written books i've ever read. After listening to the abridged version I went out and bought to book so that I could know the entire story. It is by far one of mu favorite books of all time. Tolstoy had a way of getting inside the mind of a woman that I've not seen in many other authors. If you like this book I recommend reading some of his short stories also.
