* SwitchingPOV: While the majority of the book follows a core group of maybe seven characters (Levin, Anna, Vronsky, Karenin, Kitty, Oblonsky, and Dolly), virtually everyone in the huge cast gets at least a moment in the spotlight. A couple of scenes even put us [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment in the head of Levin's dog]]!

**Also averted somewhat, in that Anna is never explicitly condemned by the narration as a "bad person" (and is treated quite sympathetically at times), while Levin is still shown to possess his characteristic temper and stubbornness even immediately after his conversion.
