Anna Karenina is beautiful, married to a successful man, and has a son whom she adores. But a chance meeting at a train station in Moscow sets her passionate heart alight, and she is defenceless in the face of Count Vronsky's adoration. Having defied the rules of 19th-century Russian society, Anna is forced to pay a heavy price.
Human nature, with all its failings, is the fabric of which this great and intense work is composed. Anna Karenina has been described as the perfect Russian novel.

a real pain to download
I am not going to review the book but the download.
It took me 2 hours to get it so that it actually works. First I downloaded another version, which sounded horrible on my mp3 player (Philips). I downloaded the format that was recommended for Philips, still... I returned it (luckily I could do it after a bit of pain). Then I chose this version of the book. Audible Manager got confused, froze three times during download. I couldn't delete the previous version from my mp3 player using the program and the new uploaded version did not appear anywhere on my mp3 player. Finally I just copy pasted it from my computer. This Audible Manager is totally stupid and useless but yes: you have to use the program because you have to active your player to play the book... no comment... Finally the 40 hour long book appeared as 6 pieces of approx. 8 hour long files on my player. I can see that each 8 hour long session is divided originally into 30 separate pieces, but I can only play the 8 hour long thing as one. Super handy as everyone listens to the story for 8 hours non-stop. Now I will need to write up where I was if I would like to listen to anything else too and also I will have to wind the file for minutes to actually get there. Well done.
