I read both the free classic and this (Maude translation) version of Anna Karenina and, for me, there truly was a big difference between the two. This translation is so much easier to read and there were no typos -- definitely worth paying for.

I won't go into the literary or artistic worth of Anna Karenina except for one thing. Tolstoy's writing about the Russian countryside and even agricultural practice is so picturesque and atmospheric that you feel like you can smell the various crops. Superb writing.

This Carefully Crafted Classics version of Anna Karenina was excellent. The Maude translation, yes, does show its age, and more than a bit. But it has to be better than certain translations of other classic Russian works I've read over the past couple of years. And I appreciated the embedded footnotes. They provided good explanation of context and translation of the frequent use of French without wrecking the flow. This version is a steal at the price and highly recommended. I'm subtracting a star because of the dated translation. Also because of the weird use of Western first name and Russian patronymic, which I find jarring but which other readers might not object to at all.

How neat would it be to be able to toggle a phrase from English to Russian, just to see what the original was? C'mon, developers; help us out here.

I really appreciated the cleanliness of the text! An edition like this really makes a big difference--without the irritation of typos, I was free to enjoy the beauty of this classic. It's totally worth the extra couple dollars. This is a beautiful novel and I can't wait to read it again.

Anna Karenina is an outstanding classic love story. I was pleased that eh $2.99 translation was good and easy to read. There is no need for the consumer to waste additional money for the more expensive translations offered for the Kindle.

Much better than the free kindle version both in terms of readability and extra features. The Maude translation is much better than the other. Chapter markers and the Tolstoy biography are nice extras. Worth the read.

I bought this book to read on my kindle. I have thoroughly enjoyed it. I am about 30% through the book and have not found any obvious typos. The translation seems very easy to follow and I can picture each scene easily as I read. I especially enjoyed the preface of this translation. It has photos of Tolstoy, an essay about his philosophy, and then two different lists of characters that are very helpful. There's also information about Russian names that helps you understand the relationships of the characters as you read. This is my first experience reading Tolstoy and I read many reviews trying to decide which translation to buy. I am very happy with this one and would recommend it to anyone.

This is a great translation, i'm really enjoying the story. It's much easier to read than i anticipated. I would not pay the $14.99 or whatever it is for the Oprah version.

For those of you who have tried to read Russian novels in the past and given up because you got lost in all the characters or the conversations in French or German, this is the translation for you. There is a very useful list of characters at the end organized both by family members and by order of appearance in the book. In addition, you will find a list explaining unfamiliar Russian terms. Within the story itself, a translation of all French and German expressions or dialogues appears immediately after the text.
