Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Karamazov Brothers (Oxford World's Classics) (Paperback)
Probably my favourite Dostoyevsky novel.
I don't even have the words to begin to describe how fantastic this piece is.
Dostoyevsky conveys the philosophical conflicts in humanity, where the consequences of God's existence and non-existence is explored throughout the novel.
Where the question of moral obligations leaves a deep impression on the readers mind.
Dostoyevsky always looks at things from a different perspective, after reading this book it opened my eyes to a new philosophical understanding of life.
'If God does not exist, then all things are permitted' a magnificent statement by Ivan Karamazov which takes in nihilistic truths.
Alyosha being the son who attempts to practise the Christian command of Agape love in the real world which leads to conflict.
The book is filled with fantastic explorations of philosophical dilemmas.
My review writing skills aren't the best, neither is my english.
But if there is any book in the world which I would recommend then it would be this one.
