As Fyodor Karamazov awaits an amorous encounter, he is violently done to death. The three sons of the old debauchee are forced to confront their own guilt or complicity. Who will own to parricide? The reckless and passionate Dmitri? The corrosive intellectual Ivan? Surely not the chaste novice monk Alyosha? The search reveals the divisions which rack the brothers, yet paradoxically unite them.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Dostoyevsky's last novel. It had drama, humor, and sadness. Everything a Russian classic should have. I wouldn't recommend this to a reader new to Russian fiction (try Chekov first). However, if you love late 19th Century Russian fiction this is a must read.
