I thought I was 'hearing voices' in my head until I read other reviewers' points about the recording. The reader seems to have recorded this at home with her telly on in the background and with the stammering over many of the lines and names I found it difficult to listen to her otherwise lovely voice.

The book itself has so far been lovely, but the audio copy is disappointing. While the reader has a pleasant voice, she stubbles over words and can be heard gulping water at the end of chapters. Half way through the first section there is occasional background noise, like a TV that has been left on. The audio should have had better editing.

The novel and its pedigree stand for themselves, it is utterly fantastic.
The audio-book goes a long way to matching that. The fact that one narrator manages to bring to life such a wide range of characters, of all ages, sexes and classes, and makes them each individual and personal, is incredible. Most notably the expression she gives to Anna, her thoughts and her speech are to be commended.

Judy Franklin's narration is almost faultless - no mean feat with a book of nearly 1000 pages! On occasions it is somewhat dry, but does that show her fidelity to Tolstoy? Anna Karenina is indubitably a supreme work of literature.
