Fyodor Dostoyevsky is a titanic figure among the world's great authors, and The Brothers Karamazov is often hailed as his finest novel. A masterpiece on many levels, it transcends the boundaries of a gripping murder mystery to become a moving account of the battle between love and hate, faith and despair, compassion and cruelty, good and evil.
"Best "Karamazov" yet."
The Brothers Karamazov is the final novel by the Russian author Fyodor Dostoevsky and is generally considered the culmination of his life's work. Published in November 1880, Dostoevsky spent nearly two years writing the novel set in 19th-century Russia. Fydor Karamazov, a mean and disreputable landowner, has three sons, Dmitry, a profligate army officer; Ivan, a writer with revolutionary ideas; and Alexey, a religious novice.
"The Brothers Karamozov"
The book probes the possible roles of four brothers in the unresolved murder of their father, Fyodor Karamazov. At the same time, it carefully explores the personalities and inclinations of the brothers themselves. Their psyches together represent the full spectrum of human nature, the continuum of faith and doubt. Ultimately, this novel seeks to understand the real meaning of faith and existence and includes much beneficial philosophical and spiritual discussion that moves the reader towards faith.
"An expert abridgement"
A father's murder sets the stage for a riveting tale of intrigue and passion that also explores profound issues of faith and ethics. This classic novel - considered Dostoevsky's finest work - tells the story of crazed landowner Fyodor Karamazov and his four sons - Dmitry, Ivan, Alyosha, and the illegitimate Smerdyakov. Fyodor's murder sets the stage for a complex tangle of moral and ethical struggles that involve patricide, betrayal, sacrifice, and glory.
The Brothers Karamazov tells the stirring tale of four brothers: the pleasure-seeking, impatient Dmitri; the brilliant and morose Ivan; the gentle, loving, and honest Alyosha; and the illegitimate Smerdyakov: shy, silent, and cruel. The four unite in the murder of one of literature's most despicable characters - their father. This was Dostoevsky's final and best work.
"Narration not to everyone's taste"
Dostoevsky studied human nature with passion and precision. He plumbed the depths and never winced at what he found, even when it was beyond his understanding. This extraordinary novel is a recital of his findings, told in the story of four brothers: Dimitri, pleasure-seeking, impatient, unruly; Ivan, brilliant and morose; Alyosha, gentle, loving, honest; and the illegitimate Smerdyakov, sly, silent, cruel. What give this story its dramatic grip is the part these brothers play in their father's murder.

Esta es la historia de un parricidio y de cuatro hijos que tenian, cada uno, un motivo para el asesinato: Dmitry el sensual; Ivan el intelectual; Alyosha, el mistico; y el torcido y astuto Smerdyakov. La novela sumerge al lector en un triangulo de amor sordido, una obsesion patologica, y un drama de sala de tribunal.
"no divido en capitulos, hablado muy rapido"
Omdrejningspunktet for romanens handling er mordet på den gamle vellystning Karamazov. Opklaringen af mordet er en psykologisk thriller, der er spændende som en kriminalroman. Vi følger hans tre sønner, der på troværdig vis repræsenterer forskellige ideologier: Den ældste, Mitja, er ligesom faderen en udsvævende levemand, den næstældste, Ivan, er den intellektuelle ateist og nihilist og den yngste, Aljosja, er den barmhjertige og godhjertede kristne, der minder om Fyrst Mysjkin i Idioten.
Tri brata, Ivan, Aleksej (Aljosha) i Dmitrij (Mitja), «zanjaty razresheniem voprosov o pervoprichinah i konechnyh celjah bytija» , i kazhdyj iz nih delaet svoj vybor, po-svoemu pytajas' otvetit' na vopros o Boge i bessmertii dushi.
