    Story
    (10)

    Raskolnikov, a destitute and desperate former student, wanders through the slums of St. Petersburg and commits a random murder without remorse or regret. He imagines himself to be a great man, a Napoleon: acting for a higher purpose beyond conventional moral law.

    Doreen Fleming says: "Absorbing tale"
    "Great..except for the last 20 minutes"
    Overall

    First of all, I have to say - this is my favorite book of all time, so I was interested to see what the audiobook version was like. I was surprised at how good it was..hearing the story helped me realize some things I hadn't really caught onto, even though I've read the book a number of times.
    However, the last 20 minutes or so of the book are horrible - the narrator changes his voice to one of the other characters and goes on and on for some time...I just couldn't listen to it, it was so annoying. I highly recommend this audiobook though, especially if you are intimidated by Dostoevsky - as it is pretty easy to follow, and the story is fantastic.
