I actually read this book in high school. I have a thing for tragic love stories dating back to 8/9 th grade. Imagine that....lol. My MM finds my oddball obsession with classics and tragic love interesing and regularly participates in my indulgences, thank goodness :) Anyways, I watched the newest version with Kiera Knightly and Jude Law last night. I was riveted to the screen, totally interesting adaptation. Kiera Knightly is abfab, I think she is beautiful! Jude Law was great for Karenin. I did wish Vronsky showed more emotion but can't win them all. Has anyone else seen this or know the story? Care to debate?

I used to lurk here a lot years ago.  Read the book several times and watched the movie with DH.  The only light-hearted comment I could offer is if it were today, you would probably say she was suffering from post-partum depression when she went crazy and killed herself!  Laughing
