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.

Great book, love Dostoyevsky and this was a great example. Writing this and adding it to my list of read books makes me want to go back and read it again.

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.
