A century after it first appeared, Crime and Punishment remains one of the most gripping psychological thrillers. A poverty-stricken young man, seeing his family making sacrifices for him, is faced with an opportunity to solve his financial problems with one simple but horrifying act: the murder of a pawnbroker. She is, he feels, just a parasite on society. But does the end justify the means? Rodion Romanovitch Raskolnikov makes his decision and then has to live with it.

I'm so excited to have finished my first Doestoyevsky book! His work is beyond this world. How he conveys the depth of his characters and their inner experience...while contemplating fundamental philosophical principals. He is a genius psychologist for sure. And the narrator of this audiobook is outstanding, couldn't have been better. He captured the depth of the material and had a perfect voice for each character.
