Fyodor Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment is universally regarded as one of literature's finest achievements, as the great Russian novelist explores the inner workings of a troubled intellectual. Raskolnikov, a nihilistic young man in the midst of a spiritual crisis, makes the fateful decision to murder a cruel pawnbroker, justifying his actions by relying on science and reason, and creating his own morality system. Dehumanized yet sympathetic, exhausted yet hopeful, Raskolnikov represents the best and worst elements of modern intellectualism. The aftermath of his crime and Petrovich's murder investigation result in an utterly compelling, truly unforgettable cat-and-mouse game. This stunning dramatization of Dostoevsky's magnum opus brings the slums of St. Petersburg and the demons of Raskolnikov's tortured mind vividly to life. Download and start listening now!

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

    " Tough going, very dense book. But I can see why Dostoyevsky is hailed as one of the great writers of history. His portrayal of what we would now know as bipolar disorder is brilliantly and tragically depicted. "

    " Such a fantastic book. A little slow at the beginning, but it overall is a thrillingly real read. "

    " I thought overall this was a great book. It incorparated many deep facts about life and it dug deep into your conceince. It made you think about life and its devilish and depressing ways. That is, of course, if you survive all 600 pages of it and the hard to understand russian phrases. "
