Product Description

About the Author

Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoïevski (as Fedor or Theodore in French) is a Russian writer, born in Moscow on Nov. 11 (October 30) in 1821 and died in St. Petersburg on February 9 (January 28) 1881. It is generally considered one of the greatest Russian novelists, and has influenced many writers and philosophers. After a difficult childhood, he attended a school for officers and binds with the Russian progressive movements. Arrested for this reason in 1849 he was deported to a Siberian prison for four years. Returned lieutenant, he resigned from the army in 1860 and is really committed to writing. Epileptic player in debt and a dark character, Dostoïevski first leads a life of wandering in Europe, during which he became a staunch liberal for his country and especially a staunch patriot, before being recognized his return to Russia in 1871 after the publication of Crime and Punishment (1866) and the Idiot (1868) which opened the period of maturity where the author wrote his most accomplished works: the Eternal Husband (1870) the Demons (1871) and the Brothers Karamazov (1880). Dostoevsky's novels are sometimes called "metaphysical", as the anguished question of free will and the existence of God is at the heart of his thinking, as the figure of Christ. However, his works are not "thesis novels", but novels where dialectically opposed views with different characters who build themselves, through their actions and their social interactions

I have to admit it bored me :( I love Dostoevsky and regard him as one of the best writers ever so it made me sad that I couldn't go through whole thing.
But, it's not a bad book. It has all that amazes you in his writing, the problem maybe is it has more than of it that it should. I read later that this particular novel was written in parts for a newspaper and Fiodor was paid for word - and I guess this may the reason it contains so much unnecessary things. And it's not like I don't like long books full of vast descriptions of clothes, landscapes etc. I like'em, I love Balzac, Dostoewsky, Stendhal etc This time however goes far too far. You can skip whole chapters without loosing anything at all, there are many conversations which don't change anything, utterly superfluous. Still, it's not a bad book, simply too long, so if you have more patience than myself you'll probably enjoy it and if don't and you're looking to read your first Dostoevsky's book, please don't start with this one. He's really THE great writer.

1.0 out of 5 stars Frustrating 31 Oct. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't know Dostoevsky, and I've wanted to read this for a long time. I'm drawn into the story, and I very much like the comments direct to the reader. But sadly the translation is either poorly edited, or written by someone with a poor grasp of English. I have given up at 'Except Fyodor Pavlovitch, more of the party had ever seen the monastery, and Miusov had probably not even been to church for thirty years.' Why do publishers let this happen?
