In the beginning reading Anna Karenin can feel a little like visiting Paris for the first time You ve heard a lot about the place before you go Much of what you see from the bus you recognize from pictures and movies and books You can t help but think of the great writers and artists who have been here before you You expect to like it You want to like it But you don t want to feel like you have to like it You worry a little that you won t But after a few days you settle in and you feel the immensity of the place opening up all around you You keep having this experience of turning a corner and finding something beautiful that you hadn t been told to expect or catching sight of something familiar from a surprising angle You start to trust the abundance of the place and your anxieties that someone else will have eaten everything up before your arrival relax Maybe that simile reveals about me than I d likeMy favorite discovery was the three or four chapters out of the book s 239 devoted to of all things scythe mowing chapters that become a celebratory meditation on physical labor When I read those chapters I felt temporarily cured of the need to have something happen and became as absorbed in the reading as the mowers are absorbed in their work Of course the book is about Anna and Vronsky and Levin and Kitty and Dolly and poor stupid Stepan Arkadyich It s about their love and courtship and friendship and pride and shame and jealousy and betrayal and forgiveness and about the instable variety of happiness and unhappiness But it s also about mowing the grass and arguing politics and hunting and working as a bureaucrat and raising children and dealing politely with tedious company To put it accurately it s about the way that the human mind or as Tolstoy sometimes says the human soul engages each of these experiences and tries to understand itself the world around it and the other souls that inhabit that world This book is not afraid to take up any part of human life because it believes that human beings are infinitely interesting and infinitely worthy of compassion And what I found stirring the book s fearlessness extends to matters of religion Tolstoy takes his characters seriously enough to acknowledge that they have spiritual lives that are as nuanced and mysterious as their intellectual lives and their romantic lives I knew to expect this dimension of the book but I could not have known how encouraging it would be to dwell in it for so longIn the end this is a book about life written by a man who is profoundly in love with life Reading it makes me want to live

WARNING This is not a strict book review but rather a meta review of what reading this book led to in my life Please avoid reading this if you re looking for an in depth analysis of Anna Karenina Thanks I should also mention that there is a big spoiler in here in case you ve remained untouched by cultural osmosis but you should read my review anyway to save yourself the troubleI grew up believing like most of us that burning books was something Nazis did though of course burning Disco records at Shea stadium was perfectly fine I believed that burning books was only a couple of steps down from burning people in ovens or that it was at least a step towards holocaustIf I heard the words burning books or book burning I saw Gestapo SS and SA marching around a mountainous bonfire of books in a menacingly lit suare It s a scary image an image of censorship of fear mongering of mind control an image of evil So I never imagined that I would become a book burner That all changed the day Anna Karenina that insufferable whiny pathetic pain in the ass finally jumped off the platform and killed herself That summer I was performing in Shakespeare in the Mountains and I knew I d have plenty of down time so it was a perfect summer to read another 1000 page novel I d read Count of Monte Cristo one summer when I was working day camps Les Miserable one summer when I was working at a residential camp and Shogun in one of my final summers of zero responsibility A summer shifting back and forth between Marc Antony in Julius Caesar and Pinch Antonio and the Nun which I played with great gusto impersonating Terry Jones in drag in Comedy of Errors or sitting at a pub in the mountains while I waited for the matinee to give way to the evening show seemed an ideal time to blaze through a big meaty classic I narrowed the field to two by Tolstoy War and Peace and Anna Karenina I chose the latter and was very uickly sorry I didI have never met such an unlikable bunch of bunsholes in my life m kayI admit itI am applying Mr Mackey s lesson You should see how much money I ve put in the vulgarity jar this past week Seriously I loathed them all and couldn t give a damn about their problems By the end of the first part I was longing for Anna to kill herself I d known the ending since I was a kid and if you didn t and I spoiled it for you sorry But how could you not know before now I wanted horrible things to happen to everyone I wanted Vronsky to die when his horse breaks its back I wanted everyone else to die of consumption like Nikolai And then I started thinking of how much fun it would be to rewrite this book with a mad Stalin cleansing the whole bunch of them and sending them to a Gulag in fact this book is the ultimate excuse for the October Revolution though I am not comparing Stalinism to Bolshevism If I d lived as a serf amongst this pack of idiots I d have supported the Bolshies without a second thoughtI found the book excruciating but I was locked in my life long need to finish ANY book I started It was a compulsion I had never been able to break and I had the time for it that summer I spent three months in the presence of powerful andor fun Shakespeare plays and contrasted those with a soul suckingly unenjoyable Tolstoy novel and then I couldn t escape because of my own head I told myself many things to get through it all I am missing the point Something s missing in translation I m in the wrong head space I shouldn t have read it while I was living and breathing Shakespeare It will get better It never did Not for me I hated every m kaying page Then near the end of the summer while I was sitting in the tent a couple of hours from the matinee I remember it was Comedy of Errors because I was there early to set up the puppet theatre I finally had the momentary joy of Anna s suicide Ecstasy She was gone And I was almost free But then I wasn t free because I still had the final part of the novel to read and I needed to get ready for the show then after the show I was heading out to claim a campsite for an overnight before coming back for an evening show of Caesar I was worried I wouldn t have time to finish that day but I read pages whenever I found a free moment and it was looking good Come twilight I was through with the shows and back at camp with Erika and my little cousin Shaina The fire was innocently crackling Erika was making hot dogs with Shaina so I retreated to the tent and pushed through the rest of the book When it was over I emerged full of anger and bile and tossed the book onto the picnic table with disgust I sat in front of the fire eating my hot dogs and drinking beer and that s when the fire stopped being innocent I knew I needed to burn this book I couldn t do it at first I had to talk myself into it and I don t think I could have done it at all if Erika hadn t supported the decision She d lived through all of my complaining though and knew how much I hated the book and I am pretty sure she hated listening to my complaints almost as much So I looked at the book and the fire I ate marshmallows and spewed my disdain I sang Beatles songs then went back to my rage and finally I just stood up and said M kay itI tossed it into the flames and watched that brick of a book slowly twist and char and begin to float into the night sky The fire around the book blazed high for a good ten minutes the first minute of which was colored by the inks of the cover then it tumbled off its prop log and into the heart of the coals disappearing forever I cheered and danced and exorcised that book from my system I felt better I was cleansed of my communion with those whiny Russians And I vowed in that moment to never again allow myself to get locked into a book I couldn t stand it s still hard but I have put a few asideSince the burning of Anna Karenina there have been a few books that have followed it into the flames Some because I loved them and wanted to give them an appropriate pyre some because I loathed them and wanted to condemn them to the fire I don t see Nazis marching around the flames any either I see a clear mountain night I taste bad wine and hot dogs I hear wind forty feet up in the tops of the trees I smell the chemical pong of toxic ink and I feel the relief of never having to see Anna Karenina on my bookshelf again Whew I feel much better now Pinstripe Empire pietari.

What is the most important thing about Anna Karenina Is it the first line Happy families are all alike every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way This sounds so true but it isn t really Is it that Anna experiences much intolerance for her unfaithfulness and leaving her husband than does her brother who screws around like a dog Is it Konstantin Levin s attempts to marry into the aristocracy and his problem with religion Or is the entire story just Tolstoy s way of seducing the reader into reading the political nub of the story the feudalism that was at the heart of all politics morality and social position I enjoyed the book when I read it but I have to say I skimmed over a lot of the politics and did wonder which in Tolstoy s heart is the story he wanted to tell love stories or political onesHow I came to read Anna Karenina appendicitis and an air hostess ending with a rotten tomato view spoilerI read this book when I was 13 I had a test on it in two days and hadn t even opened it so I said I had stomach ache and went to the school sick room This was a tall narrow room with a tiny window about 8 up and painted with shades of olive green and aubergine eggplant If you weren t sick going in those colours But I was away in Russia with Anna her husband Alexei and Count Vronsky whom I swooned over In the early hours of the morning I really had stomach ache At 4 am I had an emergency appendectomy in a nursing home with an operating theatre I was very sick indeed and in bed for weeks Had I brought it on myselfNever mind Next day three things happened one bad and one good and one fantastic My period came on for the first time I was a Woman Yes I told my mother and my grandmother leaned over from the visitor chair and slapped my face very hard That s to take the shock of the blood away She said Then the good My mother said I had been waiting for this day and she really let loose at my grandmother They had a very fierce row It was wonderful My mother didn t love me and she never ever defended me or involved herself with me in any way Memories of being slapped herself I suppose My mother was very pretty and was the first of her family to be married On her wedding day her mother slapped her face as she put the veil on her Ruth should have been married first not you Ruth was her much less attractive and zealously religious older sister She mellowedEveryone else in the nursing home was old except for an air hostess of 21 She didn t have a private room and didn t like being with the old people so would wander into mine to sit and read and eat all my chocolates of which I had endless boxes She brought her books Jane Austen Charlotte Bronte Mrs Gaskell and Zola So for nearly three weeks my days were filled with reading talking about books with my new friend and eating chocolates all day longI was actually thrown out of the nursing home The food there was terrible One lunchtime there was something forgettable and salad The tomato was perfect looking but mushy almost liuid so I threw it out of the window and it landed on one of the nuns who was beside herself with anger I didn t care my friend had left a few days before left her books for me too in exchange for some fancy ribbon bowed boxes of chocolates We wrote for a bit were penpals but eventually that died The age gap and where we were in our lives was too far apart But I will always remember her and the fabulous books she introduced me too Thank you Helen hide spoiler
