Among the greatest novels ever written, "Anna Karenina" details the passionate love triangle between Anna, her husband Karenin, and her lover Vronsky. The triangle is broken when Anna decides to leave her family to follow Vronsky to Italy, a decision that will lead to an ill-fated end for her and misery for those around her. The novel doesn t merely focus on the romantic dramas of its main characters, however; it examines the lives of other characters that serve as a counterpoint to the main action and complete Tolstoy s universal vision of the emotionally charged relationships between men, duty, resignation, and success. This quality hardcover edition ties into the feature film starring Keira Knightley and Jude Law."
