Tolstoy's lush story of betrayal and heartbreak, so finely crafted and beloved for decades, takes on a fresh blush of passion in this rendition. Saskia Wickham immerses herself in each character, illuminating her various characterizations with a knowledge of the customs of nineteenth-century Russia. She lives Anna's story in the moment, treating the scenario as if it were happening here and now. As a result, the sweetness and pain are fully available to listeners. Whether you're new to Tolstoy or a longtime admirer, you will want this rendition in your audio library. D.J.B. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
