15 Beloved Books You May Have Hated the First Time You Tried Them

Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy



About: Leo Tolstoy’s classic story of doomed love is one of the most admired novels in world literature. Generations of readers have been enthralled by his magnificent heroine, the unhappily married Anna Karenina, and her tragic affair with dashing Count Vronsky.

In their world frivolous liaisons are commonplace, but Anna and Vronsky’s consuming passion makes them a target for scorn and leads to Anna’s increasing isolation. The heartbreaking trajectory of their relationship contrasts sharply with the colorful swirl of friends and family members who surround them, especially the newlyweds Kitty and Levin, who forge a touching bond as they struggle to make a life together. Anna Karenina is a masterpiece not only because of the unforgettable woman at its core and the stark drama of her fate, but also because it explores and illuminates the deepest questions about how to live a fulfilled life.

Perrie Edwards is being attacked by Arsenal fans because her boyfriend is transferring to Chelsea


  • Yesterday, it was revealed by the British media that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Perrie Edwards' boyfriend, is planning on leaving Arsenal and signing to Chelsea, which was of course received in a negative way by his current team's fans.

  • According to them and their delusional logic, Perrie is to blame for this, so they decided to start attacking her on social media, leaving snake emojis on her Instagram posts, as well as calling her and Alex names.

  • Some pathetic comments by these football fans include: "its 2017 what ur partner does reflect on you" [sic], making it seem like she deserves to get hate because of Alex's actions, and "if ox can leave arsenal for chelsea what makes you think that he won't leave her for other bitch in little mix" [sic], because apparently transferring teams to try and have a better football career and dumping your girlfriend to start dating one of her bandmates is the same.

Ashlee walked over to Caitlyn and began to express her feelings (semi-inaudible due to the music) during which Caitlyn taps the shoulder of the events co-chair Dena Williams standing in front of her and points at Ashlee to have her taken care of.

Ashlee continues until you can hear Jenner interrupting by asking "Are you done yet?"
