I completed reading Anna Karenina about a week ago, then went to see the recently released movie of the same title. This is not a novel to leave alone for a few days and come back to--hard to pick up where you leave off as I discovered over Thanksgiving holidays, family visits, travel, etc. The movie was a bit of a disappointment. Anyone who had not read the book would not have understood what was happening to the characters, the relationship of the characters to each other and the plot. I would prefer a miniseries somewhat along the lines of Lonesome Dove as a more comprehensive film version. Now reading "The Jetty" by co-author's Jan Brandon and Joe Labatt, set in Port Aransas, Texas.
