Anna Karenina - Not your average lush historical drama. Very stylized, and at times quirky. Think more like Tolstoy meets Baz Lurhmann. Vronsky and the husband are more likable than I remember from the novel.
Anna Karenina by Tolstoy is a beautiful read. It's Russian, therefore slow, dreadfully so at points. But the end is amazing, it's vivid, fast-paced, and heartbreaking. Absolutely worth reading. The recent movie was great as well, the costumes were impeccable.
