I have read other Dostoevsky books before, and for some reason The Idiot has never appealed to me. I love Dostoevsky but did not have high expectations for this book. To my surprise,I really enjoyed this book when I finally decided to listen to it. The story is catching with the typical Dostoevsky observations on life, human behaviour, philosophy without being a lecture on these themes. It is worth reading/listening. Plus, the narration is great.
I bought this to listen with my son. It is just impossible to listen to the recording, low quality, lack of clarity, background noise. I am a fan of audiobooks and an audible customer, but I am really disappointed. Not worth buying.
