The Idiot is a novel written by Russian author Fyodor Dostoyevsky. The Idiot is ranked beside some of Dostoyevsky's other works as 1 of the most brilliant literary achievements of the "Golden Age" of Russian literature.

26-year-old Prince Lev Nikolayevich Myshkin returns to Russia after spending several years at a Swiss sanatorium. Scorned by the society of St. Petersburg for his trusting nature and naivety, he finds himself at the center of a struggle between a beautiful kept woman & a virtuous and pretty young girl, both of whom win his affection. Unfortunately, Myshkin's very goodness precipitates disaster, leaving the impression that, in a world obsessed with money, power, & sexual conquest, a sanatorium may be the only place for a saint.

This is NOT the Pevear-Volokonsky translation, as the cover claims.

I must say that this is a very interesting book. The in depth analysis of the main character (Prince Myshkin) kept me captivated for hours. I must say however that while reading this book it can be helpful to keep some sort of log of the characters. Because there is a multitude of characters and each of these characters has a full name, shortened name, and nickname things can get confusing. Also, there are many footnotes (this is understandable because of the book having been translated) which leave the reader constantly flipping around to read them. However, if you can triumph over these things, this is a truely wonderful book that explores an entirely fascinating subject.

The Idiot is a book often assigned in schools, but rarely read because it sounds like a boring old 'classic.' Nothing could be further from the truth. Though The Brothers Karamazov and Crime & Punishment are more famous, The Idiot represents perhaps the purest expression of FMD's uncategorizable worldview. The title character is an epileptic (like the author) who is at once guileless and insightful. His candor and forgivingness sets him apart from society, making him an object of both fascination and resentment. Though a highly 'ideological' novel, it is also a soap opera, full of affaires, intrigues, and violent episodes. It's a page-turner you can re-read every few years.

The new 16-year-old girl bounds in, giggling, her voice bubbly. Today she wore a pink spaghetti strap tank, black leather jacket, and tight blue skinnny jeans. On her feet were blue jelly flipflops. Her hair was straight, pink with black at the tips. She wore mascara, vanilla sparkly lip gloss, and diamond earrings. She looked around, eyes wide.

Heart thumping in her chest, Eva gathered up her nerves and walked to the front door. Bracing herself, she knocked on the door thrice, biting her lip and waiting.

His gaze caught the girl leaving and he followed her. This was not meant to be creapy, he was just wondering if she was ok. Plus he wanted someone to talk to. As he got closer he brought his hand from his pocket and tapped her shoulder.

The young girl shook back and forth in the dusty corner, her wings spread around her. "Help." She managed to squeak.

Blanche P. Nightengale walked into the hall, clutching a small suitcase. The tall, pale girl looked around at the other people. "Hello," she said with a particular Irish lilt. For some unknown reason, an owl perched on her shoulder.

The small, dirty boy stood at the front gates. He closed his eyes and took a deep breath. A new start, if they were willing to have him here. He knew that when they learned about him, he would be kicked to the streets again. But he figured he could at least get a meal before that happened. "Okay, just keep to yourself... don't talk to nobody." The boy whispered to himself

She stands at the entrance of the Home For Peculiar Children, nervous if the people here are nice. Not like her old town, where everyone is mean to her. She swallows and reluctantly enters, dragging her black suitcase behind her and closes the door. She calls out, "Umm, hello? Anybody here?" Realizing saying this was a big mistake, she thinks of turning back and running away.
