Overview

The Brothers Karamazov is the final novel by the Russian author Fyodor Dostoevsky, and is generally considered the culmination of his life's work. Dostoevsky spent nearly two years writing The Brothers Karamazov, which was published as a serial in The Russian Messenger and completed in November 1880. Dostoevsky intended it to be the first part in an epic story titled The Life of a Great Sinner, but he died less than four months after its publication.

The book portrays a parricide in which each of the murdered man's sons share a varying degree of complicity. On a deeper level, it is a spiritual drama of moral struggles concerning faith, doubt, reason, free will and modern Russia. Dostoevsky composed much of the novel in Staraya Russa, which is also the main setting of the novel.

    Do NOT buy this translation

    Constance Garnett is terrible. Do not get an book translated by her.
    Get the David McDuff translation or the Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky translation.

    This is the best book I have ever read. Hands down.
    The first 30 pages or so(first 'book') is somewhat dull, but after the story begins to pick up, it is the most fascinating book you will ever read!
    The plot is good. It is a fascinating murder story. I couldn't quite classify it as a mystery, as the intent of the book isn't to figure out who killed 'him', but it is nonetheless intriguing. What is more important, though, is the philosophy. The book is largely an exploration of a variety of religious questions. Those, I will let you ponder for yourself.
    The greatest virtue of the novel is the characterization. Dostoevsky an incredible ability to paint a character portrait.
    5 stars... For the better translation!

    A Great Read

    I definitely enjoyed this novel. Although it was written over 100 years ago, the issues brought forth in the book still linger today. Religion, psychology, passion... I thought it very interesting that each of these brothers were so very different. What I especially found interesting were the arguments discussing the necessary elements of being a good parent. I definite recommend it as a good read...it's lengthy, but quite interesting.
