Published in 1864, Notes from Underground is considered the author's first masterpiece - the book in which he "became" Dostoevsky - and is seen as the source of all his later works. Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky, whose acclaimed translations of The Brothers Karamazov and Crime and Punishment have become the standard versions in English, now give us a superb new rendering of this early classic.

Notes from the Underground
Excellent book. Has a lot of
Painfully accurate on Modern human problems
Takes a strange turn in part III to a assume a personal account of his darker side. Maybe a fictional account. Coming full circle to his initial premise. Emotionally macabre. I left this book feeling uneasy although at the same time somewhat enlightened.
