I've never read "Anna Karenina", but I've read "Crime and Punishment" and "Arms and Gown" in Japanese. Another Rossian writer by whose writing I was very impressioned is Maxim Gogol. I like his short story, "Overcoat".
I don't know the precise story of "Anna Karenina" but the library near my house has many Rossian and classic books, so I'll try to read more Rossian literatures at this weekend!!

Wow, I’m trully impressed. BTW, right now, I’m reading Aleksey Tolstoy’s book about Peter the Great. Very interesting and freighting too. What barbarian traditions and customs we used to have back then.

But what about Bulgakov’s The Master and Margarita? Haven’t you read it?
The Bromfield War and Peace, first published in Britain earlier this year, runs to just 886 pages, does away with the French and the philosophical digressions, and boasts a happy ending. In the words of the shorter version's Russian publisher, Ecco, it is "twice as short, four times as interesting ... more peace, less war".
