Publisher Description

The Brothers Karamazov (Russian: Братья Карамазовы, Brat'ya Karamazovy), pronounced [ˈbratʲjə kərɐˈmazəvɨ]) is the final novel by the Russian author Fyodor Dostoyevsky. Dostoyevsky spent nearly two years writing The Brothers Karamazov, which was published as a serial in The Russian Messenger and completed in November 1880. Dostoyevsky intended it to be the first part in an epic story titled The Life of a Great Sinner, but he died less than four months after its publication.


The Brothers Karamazov is a passionate philosophical novel set in 19th century Russia, that enters deeply into the ethical debates of God, free will, and morality. It is a spiritual drama of moral struggles concerning faith, doubt, and reason, set against a modernizing Russia. Dostoyevsky composed much of the novel in Staraya Russa, which inspired the main setting. Since its publication, it has been acclaimed all over the world by intellectuals as one of the supreme achievements in literature.

    Ultimathule1976 ,

    One of the best books ever written

    Story about love,forgiveness,ethics and family.About differences between humans-weak,strong,sometimes evil humans.Dostoevsky created a world of 19th century small town as he wanted to see it.Actions and feelings are real-dialogs are not but it does not matter for a reader.I want to believe they are real.I want them to be smart and thoughtful.I want them to break that curse of Russian peasants and land owners.Want them to talk about philosophy and morals-morals not coming from orthodox priest but from within them.Great book,great writer and thinker.If Aloysha Karamazov would exist-He would save the world.My world anyway.
