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.

There seem to be gaps or mixed up chapters in this one. Frustrating.
I didn't realize till the end that there were some misplaced chapters inserted at the end.
