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.
One of the most honest portrayals of human existence I've ever read. This is a work of high genius. It's relevance will never fade.
A masterpiece, not really surprising for Dostoyevsky
This book is so bitter and conflicted, you can't help but feel sorry for the narrator. The type of man that Dostoyevsky succeeds at portraying in "Notes" still exists today, making this novel all the more poignant.
