The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky and Richard Pevear

01 Aug 2014

I listened to the Blackstone Audio recording of this book. Although I found the plot itself interesting, I don’t think I would’ve made it through a read of the book. Or I would’ve slogged through and it would’ve taken me a year to read like Crime and Punishment did. I enjoyed Crime and Punishment more than this book, which seemed to have more monologues, and ones that focused on religion and God. Don’t get me wrong, I am interested in religion, but I suppose I was never in the right mindset to enjoy the philosophical and theological tangents–although I was prompted to do some wikipediaing by the Grand Inquisitor story. I am probably missing something and I’ll go read some spark notes or literary critiques and find out exactly what that is.
