This week, my teaser is from Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy, translated by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky. I'd meant to finish reading it by the end of summer, but Don Quixote got in my way for a very long time.
There is lots and lots of drama in Anna Karenina, but 387 pages in, I keep expecting more. At least the plot of War and Peace was actually punctuated by something, even if that thing was war. Oh well. Maybe my opinion will change by the time I'm done with it.
They knew that he was afraid of everything, afraid of riding an army horse; but now, precisely because it was scary, because people broke their necks, and because by each obstacle there was a doctor, an ambulance wagon with a cross sewn on it and a sister of mercy, he had decided to ride. Their eyes met, and Vronsky winked at him gently and approvingly.-p. 195
