Yes I have read Anna and in many respects I have lived it except I was part of a different royalty! I think the book is an excellent depiction of fidelity or infidelity and the impossibility of trying to limit love. It also speaks on obsession and possession. It shows how futile and soul crushing arranged marriages can be. And it shows how an ancient convention like royalty is obsolete. There are many who are born into royalty who neither deserve it nor are regal in any way. And there are many who display royalty in their character every day yet were not born into royal families. Ultimately love is more powerful than life and some would rather end their life than live without love!
