Reading about the upcoming cinematographic adaptations of 19th century novels, I came across Joe Wright’s future Anna Karenina. So, I wondered why I never had any kind of interest in the novel. Now I do, and I would be very thankful for any opinions: I see it is a LONG novel but, is it worthy? Is it really interesting? Reading a summary, it rang a bell: she slightly reminded me of Isabel Archer in James’ Portrait of a Lady, a literary landmark I could not handle.
So, what do you think? Are you interested in Anna Karenina? Have you read it? Is it a literary landmark? Thank you!!
