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.
Like all of Dostoyevski's books, you get a certain "feel" when reading/listening. So I compare all of them especially concerning the characters.
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!
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.
Every so often, you hear a narration that takes a good novel to new heights....this is one of them. Bravo Mr Davidson.
