We’re all friends, so lets be honest with each other – no one finished Anna Karenina. If you did, you have a super power. The 864 page book drags on. And sure, I have read books that have been that long, but I can’t get through that book.
That being said, I have read the Spark Notes and the story is interesting.
The show will mark Netflix‘s first ever Russian original drama series. The series is entitled, Anna K and will be set in modern day.

Their affair quickly careens out of control, threatening the delicate balance of their familial bonds and social relationships.”
The series stars Svetlana Khodchenkova best known for her roles in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and The Wolverine.
Anna Karenina will explore the themes of passion and loyalty.
