Review

Is anyone having Gossip Girl withdrawals? Well then you need to check out Anna K.  It is a retelling of Anna Karenina — which I have to admit, I haven’t read — but I enjoyed this book so much I almost want to read it…almost.

Anna K takes place in the world of the Manhattan elite.  These are kids with with more money than they know what to do with.  At times it is a little over the top. The book focuses on several different characters which I both liked and didn’t like.  I loved the story revolving around Anna, Vronsky, Steven and Lolly. I really could have done without some of the others. As I said I haven’t read Anna Karenina so I don’t know if these stories mirror the one in the original in some way.  

This book was both fun and heartbreaking.  Anna K is truly a makes you laugh makes you cry sort of book.  It left me feeling both sad and inspired. It is certainly a book that give you all the feels.
