So in karamazivi terms, think of the difference between reading, say, William Gaddis and Michael Chabon, two writers both adored by academes but the latter with a huge mainstream fan base as well. Constantine Gregory’s narration of the audiobook was good, although I wasn’t thrilled with his women voices. I think Dmitri is the best example of this throughout the book as he examines himself and his motives and suffers greatly as he struggles with the possibility of having killed his father.
Listen, I know this book’s smarter than me. There was nothing left between the cracks for the reader to guess at and co-create the text with; it was all out there. I agree with the above verdict completely. Dostoyevsky’s father died inmost likely of apoplexy, but it was rumored that he was murdered by his own serfs.
Braća Karamazovi (The Brothers Karamazov #1-2)
I liked the overall idea, the philosophical questioning of ideas, but it seemed to vacillate back and forth between the exploration of ideas — with the characters representing different ethical positions — and a melodrama brimming with pathos. It is well said “Fickle is the heart of womanTreacherous karamazovj full of vice” You will find hate, jealousycrimepoverty and love in abundance with its true reflections in this book.
An explanation is called for. For it to be claimed that Dostoyevsky was really polymorphous and ideologically unbiased, this level of advanced logic should have been directed against faith to balance out the arguments. He is in love of middle agesthe most dangerous and turbulent love mixed with hate yet toppled by family relations and restrictions.
For those reasons and the elements of the book that I did like, I’ve bumped my rating from two to three stars. He was arrested in and sentenced to death, commuted to imprisonment in Siberia.
So in a way, I suppose we should admire Dostoyevsky for staying “with it” all the way to the end of his career, unlike all those thousands of now forgotten writers who peaked at middle age and were never relevant again; and for sure this is a smart, beautiful, insightful novel, full of all kinds of things to mentally chew on for those looking to do so.
Every chapter, every interaction is rife with symbolism. This comes to a point where I think Dostoevsky frequently loses himself in the meshes of his own word spinning. I think like this: Dostoevsky wrote philosophical novels, as you must be aware.
That is my guess. The book goes off too many tangents and is densely verbose. But the energy behind it is more or less insane. Featuring the famous chapter, The Grand Inquisitor, Dostoyevsky’s final masterpiece is at once a complex character study, a riveting murder mystery, and a fascinating examination of man’s morality and the question of God’s existence.
Yet apparently Ivan is deeply distrustful of human nature And in case we weren’t clear, he’d have another character repeat it for good measure. Although it’s certainly worth some people’s time, I can’t in honesty say it’s worth everyone’s time, one of the criteria by which we’re determining ‘classic’ status in this essay series; and while I unhesitatingly recommend it to heavy readers who are interested in seeing 19th-century literature at its headiest and most dense, I believe The Brothers Karamazov falls far short of being the proverbial “book to read before you die.
bdaca Then the bizarre murder scene occurs, does Dmitri kill his father? He was a kind of existential philosopher, founded on religion, which I guess, in a way, Dostoevsky was, too. Of course he is jealous of his brothers and would hate this father who made him a servant of the house!

His writing is of course a reflection of his own life experiences. You get what you pay for when bracq rely on the public domain, I guess. We get to see Dmitri and Ivan struggle for redemption and get the justice they seek.
It did generate a good discussion. I could have missed a lot, but I found the dialogue over-dramatic to the point of distraction. They traveled abroad and returned in He resigned from the army two years later.
I have to admit I don’t get why this one gets such rave reviews, I did enjoy it once I had battled my way through to the good parts. And although I have nothing but the works themselves to support this theory, I suspect that this is a case of something that happened as well to his American contemporary Henry James; that is, as men born at the beginning of Romanticism, their popular early novels helped set the tone for what mainstream literature even looked like in the mids, but by old age both had grown much more abstract and experimental, not just because they could now get away with it but also as a natural reflection of the Modernist times just around the centennial corner.
Imagine being alone in a windowless room with a very talkative person, perhaps one with multiple personality disorder, who talks on and on and on, such that the air feels stuffy, and you just want to escape into the open and get some fresh air.
It seemed too black and white to me — like a communist, religious manifesto.
