As in the original novel, the story follows two relationships: the tragic adulterous romance of Anna Karenina and Count Alexei Vronsky, and the much more hopeful marriage of Nikolai Levin and Kitty Shcherbatskaya. These four, yearning for true love, live in a steampunk-inspired 19th century of mechanical butlers, extraterrestrial-worshiping cults, and airborne debutante balls. Their passions alone would be enough to consume them—but when a secret cabal of radical scientific revolutionaries launches an attack on Russian high society’s high-tech lifestyle, our heroes must fight back with all their courage, all their gadgets, and all the power of a sleek new cyborg model like nothing the world has ever seen.

A very surprising and enjoyable read
If they were at all interested in steampunk or classics, I would. It's quite a long read, but enjoyable for the right reader.
It kept me on the edge of my seat and had a lot of ambiguity, which I found interesting.
Hmm, that's tough. Probably Levin (I don't think I spelled that correctly).
Toward the end, yes. It was quite long, though.
I'm almost afraid to read Anna Karenina now, because I don't want it to be different from this book.
