Notes from the Underground | [Fyodor Dostoevsky]

Notes from the Underground

A predecessor to such monumental works such as Crime and Punishment and The Brothers Karamazov, Notes From Underground represents a turning point in Dostoyevsky's writing towards the more political side.

In this work, we follow the unnamed narrator of the story, who, disillusioned by the oppression and corruption of the society in which he lives, withdraws from that society into the underground.

    "Awful hero, great narrator"

    Another in Dostoevsky's line of repulsive (but immediately recognizable) main characters. The Underground Man is someone you want to grab by the collar and shake till his teeth rattle. Simon Vance (as usual) gives a superb performance.

    "Off putting!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I don't think it was the fault of Simon Vance. The character of Underground Man was very off putting and I did not enjoy the ranting of the first half of the book.
