I wouldn't buy this book if you think all that you're going to read about is the tragic love story between Anna and Count Vronsky. The title of the book is misleading because it is far more about Russia and the Russian people who lived during the times that the doomed romance is contrived to have begun and ended in. Tolstoy, in my humble opinion, is the wordiest author I've ever had the pleasure or forbearance to read but for those who love reading about Russian history as well as having a heartbreaking romance worked into the story, then I'd say go for it!
