A century after it first appeared, Crime and Punishment remains one of the most gripping psychological thrillers. A poverty stricken young man, seeing his family making sacrifices for him, is faced with an opportunity to solve his financial problems with one simple but horrifying act: the murder of a pawnbroker. She is, he feels, just a parasite on society. But does the end justify the means? Download and start listening now!

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Quinn | 2/17/2014

    " Complicated but good. I love the internal strife. Not so sure an ax was the best choice. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amber Mountain | 2/12/2014

    " Like a grey and dark long storm with rays of hope at the VERY end. (Beautifully written) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 2/9/2014

    " Wow. And wow again. Glad to finally make it all the way through this masterful story of sin and perhaps redemption. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley Mader | 2/8/2014

    " It was a really good book, but I didn't really get into reading it until I got an audio book because it was slow from time to time. Every now and again I had issues keeping up on who was who. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michele | 2/4/2014

    " This book changed the way I viewed literature as a true art form! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Will | 1/12/2014

    " One would think it is obvious by the title, but I read the whole book (including all of the hard to pronounce names) waiting to see if he would get away with it only to find out he ends up in prison! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caroline | 12/2/2013

    " Possibly my favourite book. So well-written, and I really loved Dostoyevsky's incorporation of a philosophical examination within his story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brett Jamen | 10/30/2013

    " Amazing that this book is 150 years old. Dialogue and pacing could have been written today. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ketevan | 10/10/2013

    " In the words of Holden (From Catcher in the Rye) This book kills me! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vivek | 9/18/2013

    " On the mental anguish and moral dilemmas of Rodya. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Human Johnson | 8/27/2013

    " I really wanted to enjoy this book. I have started this book on three different occasions; this time making it to page 179. I just couldn't get into it even though I am intrigued by the concept. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 6/17/2013

    " So good for the guilt in all of us.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Walter | 3/17/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie Hayes | 2/1/2013

    " Enjoyed this much more than I'd expected to! Dark but interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nikola Janevski | 10/20/2012

    " An excellent book except the Epilogue. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Penney Cameron | 10/1/2012

    " I really enjoyed this book. Even though I didn't like the characters I was compelled to read on as I wanted to find out the outcome. It was a challenging read but worth it. I want to read the rest but I need a holiday in a quiet place. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tom Kato | 8/1/2012

    " A timeless classic that holds true even in todays world. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 M Galvin | 7/24/2012

    " Complex, yet straightforward. Difficult, yet compelling. I am amazed at how it stands the test of time, how a simple premise can be delivered with layers of contrast and that classic internal struggle that sticks with you - good and bad - long after the book has been closed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 4/10/2012

    " Very well written but a little too dark for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mr. Medina | 12/28/2011

    " I used this audiobook for eng. 4 AP and found it helpful. The only thing is there are jumps in the audiobook from my version of the novel (the one with Joseph Frank's intro; but it doesn't hurt to read a little in between pauses of the audiobook. Also the voices were beneficial. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Guido | 12/4/2011

    " One of the classics of 19th century literature. Dostoevsky's tale is eminently readable, but requires full concentration. Each line, every word is of significance and you miss one at your peril. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Walford | 6/1/2011

    " One of the greatest books ever written. Many of the 'classics' can be disappointing, not this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carl | 5/24/2011

    " Hands down, Dostoyevsky is my favorite author & this is a great book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bina | 5/20/2011

    " I love the emotional angst in thsi book. If I fed on emotions alone this book would be a banquet! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Justin | 5/18/2011

    " Dostoevsky's response to a hypothetical "So how would you do it?" "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jane | 5/17/2011

    " Oh what a book! I couldn't put it down. I've thought of it a thousand times. It allows you into the mind of someone moral and accessible and then leads you along through the thought processes and justifications of a terrible crime. It's just fascinating. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thomas | 5/17/2011

    " The translation I read was quite dated, which might have daunted my enthusiasm some. After getting through the ol' dusty pages, I couldn't help but feel satisfied. This universe of Fjodor's has something about it, like say Kafka's. Perhaps I'll re-read it some day and up my rating, why not. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 A.abkr | 5/16/2011

    " BOOORING !!
    Other than one or two good points ,
    It's a huuuge disappointment . "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 5/16/2011

    " As with Dickens "Tale of Two Cities", this book really seemed to drag at first, but the last half really draw me in and the book left me full of emotion, with tears forming in my eyes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary D. | 5/16/2011

    " Powerful book. I read it in High School and it dealt with the internal struggle with guilt. I would like to re-read this book to remember the famous names of the characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elise | 5/14/2011

    " One of my all-time favorite books. Deep and complex, dark, and thought provoking, this is Dostoyevsky's finest work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ryan | 5/14/2011

    " Great book. Lots of interesting themes on guilt and more. A bit slow at first or it would get five stars. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kizzann | 5/13/2011

    " Read: AP English class
    Thoughts: Interesting from the very beginning, although I don't like the ending too much. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thadd | 5/13/2011

    " The life and thoughts of a killer, a man who has to come to terms with his brutal act. "
