Currently blazing through Anna Karenina when I have a free moment. It is, in a word, masterful. Reminds me of a soap opera with all the high-drama between characters (though obviously there's a lot more going on then in a soap) and the writing is so fluid the pages fly by (I'm about 270 deep now). The scene where Levin works in the field with the peasants has to be one of the most beautiful things I've ever read--it's been days now of yearning for life on a farm, admittedly idealistic yearning that is. Anyone else here read it and care to share their thoughts?
