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.
An acclaimed new translation of the classic Russian novel.
I had to read this for class. In spite of that, it was a joy, and a highlight of my day.
This book engaged psychologically, exploring a vantage of ambivalent superiority. While revolting, this perspective is appreciable and fascinating thanks to the extraordinary rendering by Dostoevsky.
Though a thick read, I would highly recommend this book to anyone who considers themselves in the least introspective.
