22. Anna Karenina
This is a seriously long book. I was never going to read the written word, so I downloaded the book and listened to it in audio format.
The writing is amazing. The characters are some of the most well defined I have ever encountered. That probably comes easily when you use a zillion pages. I think the reader did an outstanding job with this humongous task.
So, why is it just OK? Because the whole book is just total soap opera. Ugh.
Tolstoy's writing is awesome. Tolstoy's story? I found it laborious and uninteresting. But, I am a man living in 2012.
