By: (1821-1881)

The Brothers Karamazov (Russian: Братья Карамазовы) is the final novel by the Russian author Fyodor Dostoevsky, and is generally considered the culmination of his life’s work.

The Brothers Karamazov is a passionate philosophical novel that explores deep into the ethical debates of God, free will, and morality. It is a spiritual drama of moral struggles concerning faith, doubt, reason, and modern Russia.

Reviews (Rated: 4 Stars - 3 reviews)

Subject: Loved the book
Some chapters are rather poorly read though. People who do no research on how to pronounce Russian names correctly, should not be reading such books at all. Also, authors who are very slow and have speech defects should resist an urge to volunteer for the audio books recordings. Overall, I still thank you for your efforts and time.

Has a dozen or so different readers. There are some very well read sections and some rather poor. Despite this, I was able to follow all readers clearly.

The reader for Book 7 chapter 1 - Alyosha is horrendously poor! Is it even a human reading it?
