Publisher's Summary

Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read.

With the same suppleness, energy, and range of voices that won their translation of The Brothers Karamazov the PEN/Book-of-the-Month Club Prize, Pevear and Volokhonsky offer a brilliant translation of Dostoevsky's classic novel that presents a clear insight into this astounding psychological thriller.

"The best (translation) currently available." (Washington Post Book World)

This audio edition of Crime and Punishment is expressively brought to life by Peter Batchelor.

waited for this translation

For many years, I've waited for the audiobook versions of the Pevear & Volokhonsky translations of Dostoevsky. Though I have read C&P several times and have listened to two audiobook versions, I quickly purchased this new audio version. Unfortunately, I cannot say good things about the narrator. He mumbles and does not perform female roles well.
