    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.

    "A Classic"
    Overall

    On getting this book I thought this is going to be a difficult read because of the length.
    Must admit, I did have to change my Ipod to something a bit more up-beat a few times during this listen or crack from depression. But all in all this is one of the classics and would give it a second chance.

    It's a fear more paralyzing than falling. More terrifying than absolute darkness. More horrifying than anything you can imagine. It's the one fear you cannot escape, no matter where you run...no matter where you hide. It's the fear of yourself. It's real. It can happen to you. And facing it can be deadly.

    Dohna says: "Koontz did it again......."
    "Wonderfully written and narated"
    Overall

    I am new to the whole audio scene but was totally engrossed in this amazing novel.
    It's real "edge of your seat" suspense and better than any movie.
    I would definitely think twice before I visit a psychologist.
    The characters really come to life and you'll find yourself wanting more.
    This is a definite must read (listen).
