    Fyodor Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment is universally regarded as one of literature's finest achievements, as the great Russian novelist explores the inner workings of a troubled intellectual. Raskolnikov, a nihilistic young man in the midst of a spiritual crisis, makes the fateful decision to murder a cruel pawnbroker, justifying his actions by relying on science and reason, and creating his own morality system. Dehumanized yet sympathetic, exhausted yet hopeful, Raskolnikov represents the best and worst elements of modern intellectualism. The aftermath of his crime and Petrovich's murder investigation result in an utterly compelling, truly unforgettable cat-and-mouse game. This stunning dramatization of Dostoevsky's magnum opus brings the slums of St. Petersburg and the demons of Raskolnikov's tortured mind vividly to life.

    "OUTSTANDING!"
    Overall

    Outside of the Holy Bible, this is my favorite book of all time. I've read hundreds and hundreds of books but none have the power of this one.
    While listening to it one time, I was in deep depression and I felt like this book was a balm to my deep emotional wounds. The relation and connection was deep and intense. It expanded my mind like few books ever have.
    I absolutely marvel at the power and force of such an incredible classic. No doubt that Dostoyevsky had an ability to climb into the human psyche like no one before and maybe no one ever will. This is my 3rd time listeing to the book and it gets better every time. George Guidall's mastery of the text only enhances the depth of this masterpiece. Each time I listen, I am more and more grateful for his emphasis and pauses which only deepen my appreciation for the text. I wish I could give it a 7 star rating.

    Journalist Rick Bragg has built a soaring monument to the grandfather he never knew, and in the process created a powerfully intimate piece of American history as it was experienced by the working people of the deep South, a glorious record of a life of character, tenacity and indomitable joy, and an unforgettable tribute to a vanishing culture.
