First Stephen Fry is great! I love his personal introductions. The content is amazing as ever and Doyle was a genius. Just know that this edition repeats the last volume, about 20 tracks twice.

  • The Brothers Karamazov

  • By: Fyodor Dostoevsky, Constance Garnett (translator)

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.

This was a great performance of a complicated, but highly thoughtful classic work! Know going in that you will probably need to visit the Brothers more than once before you can really grasp everything that is being explored. The official plot is pretty straight forward, but many ideas are explored in how the three (four) brothers react to their situations.
