I listened to this between Boston and Montreal, rolling between the mountains of New Hampshire guiding 80,000 lbs on my fingertips and the time flew by. This brief history of Dostoevsky,s life and writings just wet my appetite for more. So from Dostoevsky to Gogol, to Tolstoy, it's going to be many hours of interesting listening. Paul Strathern covered everything I need to know and won't hesitate to purchase others in this series.
Robert Whitfield is clear and animated.
