Once again, the daunting elements of classic literature that might discourage a timid reader become irrelevant, thanks to a skilled narrator. ANNA KARENINA offers multiple plotlines, complex characterizations, sizable descriptions, and many, many Russian names. The active reading required by such a book is not exhausting in the audio format; in fact, Wanda McCaddon makes this literary cornerstone downright enjoyable. It’s not that she turns herself into every character or offers over-the-top drama. Instead, it is her consistency and sensitivity to the author’s tone that make this a wonderful listen. Her familiarity with the text and understanding of its nuances illuminate the work, making what might have seemed lofty, absolutely lively.
