    Overall

    This is a great book. However, it does not lend itself to an abridged version. Sure, you get the plot, but miss out on all the interesting philosophical sections. Debra Winger narrates the book. Her voice is rather monotonal and this book, a somewhat dark Russian novel filled with mostly male characters, really does not lend itself well to a female narrator. I truly wish an unabridge version was available, with the same narrator that does the unabridged version of Crime and Punishment (available from Audible). I downloaded Crime and Punishment just after listening to Brothers Karamazov and it was much more satisfying (from the standpoint of narrators voice and unabridged).
