Not a book review this time but hopefully it will lead to one! I went to see “Anna Karenina” last night and I really enjoyed it. Which, of course, makes me want to read the book, as the book is almost always better than the movie, especially when the book is a classic.
Normally, I won’t watch a movie based on a book without reading the book, but I made an exception, mainly because I’m reading Les Miserables right now. My brain cannot take Tolstoy on top of Hugo. (I’m a bit of a book snob that way, but only because I enjoy reading so much! So no judgment for those who enjoy the movie but haven’t read the book.)
Usually, I would just go buy or check out the book, but with books that are translated I like to get recommendations about different versions first – a bad translation can really hurt a novel.
if you’ve read a translation you’ve loved or hated, drop a quick line in the comments saying which one and why! Thanks so much!
