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!
