Dostoevsky's last and greatest novel, The Karamazov Brothers (1880) is both a brilliantly told crime story and a passionate philosophical debate. The dissolute landowner Fyodor Pavlovich Karamazov is murdered; his sons--the atheist intellectual Ivan, the hot-blooded Dmitry, and the saintly novice Alyosha--are all involved at some level. Brilliantly bound up with this psychological drama is Dostoevsky's intense and disturbing exploration of many deeply felt ideas about the existence of God, freedom of will, the collective nature of guilt, and the disastrous consequences of rationalism. Filled with eloquent voices, this new translation fully realizes the power and dramatic virtuosity of Dostoevsky's most brilliant work.

4.0 July-ish (and Junish!) reads: The Brothers Karamazov, Fedor Dostoevskij
I've delayed this review because I was (and I am) strongly convinced that adding my opinion to the list of million of opinions in the world about the book was..unnecessary. Particularly because giving to The Brothers Karamazov 4 stars could be judged as a crime! But, to appease the potentially angry...

5.0 Brothers Karamozov
Alyosha endeared me to this novel. I've read it twice now and might have another go when I get my copy back from a coworker. He's so compassionate and kind, one wants to have a friend like Alyosha in real life, someone who sees beyond what we do and straight into who we could be. Alyosha is the wo...
