In Dostoyevksy's short story "The Wedding", the narrator recounts a Christmas party he went to in the past, and the observations he made there. Written in a conversational style and narrated clearly and unpretentiously by Walter Zimmerman, the story delves into the subject of greed, making sharp commentary on class and society in mid-19th-century Russia. This is a short audiobook - only 20 minutes long - but it's a true gem, every bit as praiseworthy as Dostoyevsky's more famous novels.

I focus on fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, science, history, politics and read a lot. I try to review everything I read.
Dostoevsky did not write many short stories so this is a rare gem. This is a very, very good short story narrated excellently. It is dark, surprising, touching, and real. A real bargain at a buck (don’t waste a full credit).
Myst/thrillers and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.
Showes how greed can reveal the horrors of some bottom feeders humanity. Great short listen.
