Publisher Description

Prince Myshkin returns to Russia from an asylum in Switzerland. As he becomes embroiled in the frantic amatory and financial intrigues which centre around a cast of brilliantly realised characters and which ultimately lead to tragedy, he emerges as a unique combination of the Christian ideal of perfection and Dostoevsky's own views, afflictions and manners.

...heart-stopping...

Few writers can fill you with such feelings of hope one minute, and agony the next.

Classically boring

I'm trying to get through some world renowned classics. I should have loved this more. However, the dialogue, which I'm sure, was quite charming during the era and served as witty conversation, just sounded absurd to me. The Prince came off cartoonish at best. Just not for me.
