    Director David Fishelson transforms Dostoyevsky's The Brothers Karamazov and The Idiot into spellbinding drama that illuminates both titanic novels. In The Brothers Karamazov, the passionate brothers spring to life, led by their roué of a father ¿ who entertains himself by drinking, womanizing, and pitting his three sons against each other. The men have plenty to fight over, including the alluring Grushenka.

    "Excellent introduction to Russian Literature"
    Overall

    This is a great dramatization of a classic russian masterpiece.

    while it is true that the actors accent is not russian, to me this is not essential, since this drama could have ocurred anywhere in the world, and you are better engaged if the actors sound local.

    All the actors have pleasant voices and appropiate intonation perfectly matched for their roles, the only regret I could have (and it's a really minor one) is that the music played when changing from one act to the next, couldn't be less appropiate (comic tunes when something dramatic has just happened, etc..)

    If you are not a purist and enjoy literaure and theater, do yourself a favor and listen to this audiobook, I am confident you'll finish wanting more.

    I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
