Review: What drama this Russian classic was woah, I had heard of this story but never read it but always was intrigued by it so was so happy to finally give the story a read but in an easier less daunting way.

Young Anna married but not content goes astray as a young military man sweeps her off her feet and leading her down a scorned path. Whilst young Kitty realises what love really is and that she too was blinded by the same man.

I loved this book it was filled with so much drama and I think this book captured the story perfectly. With love and forbidden love, family, betrayal, society scorning ones who do wrong. It was so much fun and I loved it.

What an amazing easy classic this was, I loved stepping into their world and reading this interesting story. I really love that these books are literally what they say easy, you can read all these amazing classic literary books and get told the story in a simpler and more manageable way but not miss out anything important within the story.
