Butterfly in the sky, I can go twice as high! ...But you don't have to take my, or Lamar Burton's, word for it. Just take a look, it's in a book.

Anna Karenina (Signet Classics)

Anna Karenina - Leo Tolstoy, David Magarshack, Priscilla Meyer Not the biggest fan of the book as I don't agree with the ending. I have never known any one to die of or for love, but on the stage. Perhaps I have too much of the modern sensibility that no man is worth dying for (and if he is, I haven't met him). Or maybe I have yet to experience that kind of crazy, insane love whose wavering devotion makes you want to throw yourself...that would be spoiling things! Which is to say, the character portrayal and situations feel timeless and easily relatable...sigh, I just can't get past the ending!
