    The Brothers Karamazov tells the stirring tale of four brothers: the pleasure-seeking, impatient Dmitri; the brilliant and morose Ivan; the gentle, loving, and honest Alyosha; and the illegitimate Smerdyakov: shy, silent, and cruel. The four unite in the murder of one of literature's most despicable characters - their father. This was Dostoevsky's final and best work.

    David says: "A long work and a great work, but boy is it long"
    "Wonderful narration, truly brilliant."

    Where does The Brothers Karamazov rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best, for me. Some others had a problem with the narrator, but I have to disagree. To be honest, it is one of the best narration jobs I've heard on any audiobook. For me, the wonderful english accent and rough voice perfectly enhanced the world I believe Dostoyevski is trying to create in this novel.
    I have to rate this one of the best audiobooks due to the combination of a wonderful novel and brilliant narration.


    What other book might you compare The Brothers Karamazov to and why?

    Like all of Dostoyevski's books, you get a certain "feel" when reading/listening. So I compare all of them especially concerning the characters.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I love the scenes in the Monastary at the begginning of the book.....I can almost see papa Karamazov's contorted face when I listen to Mr Davidson belt out his dialogue ...wonderful!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Hard to have the time to listen in one sitting, but even with the length of this, it was one of the fastest I've gone through.


    Any additional comments?

    Every so often, you hear a narration that takes a good novel to new heights....this is one of them. Bravo Mr Davidson.
