Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy

Aloha Everyone,

Leo Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina can be downloaded for free through

Easy to remember the main characters, but the supporting ones was like reading something new. It’s a long book.

I decided to set aside the book to watch a recent Russian miniseries on YouTube. Magnificent costumes and good presentation with a captivating beginning. I watched the first episode last night in Russian with English subtitles.  Recognizing a couple of simple Chinese dialogues enhanced my enjoyment. This will surely be a combination of language studies with historical events and masterful story telling.

Aloha -- Cathi
