I absolutely adore this book! The reader in this addition is excellent and never bores. The story is awfully long so you'll have to dedicate some time, but listening makes it go by so much faster. I got this as a christmas present and little did i know it would become a favorite. It is witty and intellectually stimulating, but while dark, it is never overwhelming or depressing. Very interesting and a well written translation. I read this after finishing THe Man Who Was Thursday, by GK Chesterton, and found they are an interesting combination.

Some may say its a bad book beecause of the grammar and the fact that they were forced to read it. I was also told to read it, but i loved it. The grammar is simply from being translated and its an amazing book. I do say that its more of an advanced book.

A commentary as much on his own time as our own. Amazing how he captures the revolution and I can only see one coming our way.

A very interesting story about a russian peasant and his fatal actions that haunt him for most of his life. He commits a deed that he regrets later on. His family risks everything for the goodness of his sake. He seems so selfish yet he is not because in his inner personality you see a different person that wants to help others but can't because life has him deprived of money. Money buys a lot of things in this book, like in our world today. So Raskolnikov the protoganoist is living in a state of delirium. I could tell you much more, but i suggest you buy the book. It is a Russian Classic by the lovely Feodor Dostoevsky. =)
