Crime and Punishment is the story of a crime - a double murder committed by a student for the money. However simple the plot is, the novel becomes etched into the mind and soul of a reader or listener. What is so enigmatic about it? Besides the plain and obvious - that it is all due to Dostoevsky's genius - there is at least one other explanation: some questions do not have any unsophisticated and definite answers. Poverty, distress, and the suffering of loved ones have always pushed people to make a choice: May I break any moral law now to save those humiliated and support those weak in the future, or shall I love myself first and then, after becoming stronger, love my neighbor? These are eternal questions.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andra | 2/18/2014

    " More challenging than any thriller book or movie I have read / seen in years. Vivid descriptions, dramatic turns of situation, a very refined analysis of human mind. "

    " Crime and Punishment centers upon the story of a young Russian student, Raskolnikov, who plots and carries out a brutal murder. However, this is less than a quarter of the story. The rest centers upon his attempts to come to terms with the philosophical and psycological consequences of his act. Aiding, or hindering, him in this endevor are a series of characters from the kind-hearted prostitute Sonia and her drunken father, the unrepentant scoundrel Svidrigailov, Raskolnikov's best friend Razumihin, and the police detective come amateur psychologist Porfiry Petrovich. Though the story develops slowly, with many detours, Raskolnikov's journey through crime and punishment remains gripping until the very last page. "

    " It took a little while to get into it, and I think this is partly because of when it was written and the language that was used. It definitely didn't draw me in the way most good modern books do, but it was still enjoyable, and the story was good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jamie | 1/31/2014

    " Lengthy, but a good read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alexandre Gonçalves | 1/29/2014

    " Absolute favourite. Best book I've ever read, for too many reasons to describe here. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenny | 1/28/2014

    " Phenomenal. One of my very favorites! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alana Solin | 1/24/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nidhi | 1/16/2014

    " Its a great book. It was the first book i ever read in my life. And it was a book that brought my taste of literature. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jarrett | 1/5/2014

    " read the idiot, the gambler or brothers Karamazov instead. what starts as a pretty good psychological thriller stops dead cause my man Fyodor needed some money and slapped on an ending that the Vatican would be proud of. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ben Guthrie | 1/2/2014

    " This is one of the few books of which I can truly say: it changed my life. Others can discuss the quality of the story, but for me its greatest power was that it held up a mirror and showed me what I was and what I could be. When it did that, I knew why I could not remain as I was. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amber Mountain | 11/26/2013

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

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tracy | 11/11/2013

    " Just...couldn't...finish... 535 pages read (out of 810). It was interesting for a while, but just got too damn long and I couldn't handle another character with some insanely long Russian name being thrown into the mix. Hey, I tried. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diana Sarao | 10/22/2013

    " 12th grade ap English- one if my favorites. Ever. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danielle Lovesey | 8/8/2013

    " This book is amazing, its complicated and intricate it shows you the inner workings of a broken mind struggling with the ideas he thought were logical, its such a great book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beyza | 7/11/2013

    " best book in my life "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matt | 4/1/2013

    " About halfway through this I realized this very may well be the best book I'll ever read, that is all I can say as far as a review goes. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andrew O'Rourke | 2/2/2013

    " A great look at the mind of a criminal. This being said, it went on too long, the subplots weren't good, and the ending was dreadful. I could barely finish it. This is one of the first "classics" that I felt was very overrated. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rohan Shedage | 1/26/2013

    " If War and Peace is life then Crime and Punishment is breath... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 10/4/2012

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

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Doopie | 9/15/2012

    " Of all the book we have to read for school, this is my favorite!!! It was so GOOD! And the ending was a so cute and just plain GREAT!!! I loved it!!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vance Halfaker | 7/15/2012

    " Dostoevsky has been my favorite for the last year. So far, nothing has matched The Idiot, but anything of his is worth all the time and mental energy it WILL take. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Will | 4/13/2012

    " 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 Rubaiyat Rashid | 4/2/2012

    " this was the most amazing book i have ever had the pleasure of reading!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kevin Waggoner | 2/4/2012

    " Amazing the amount of suffering a soul can endure and then come out better for it. I was entrenched in the prose and in wonder at the ability of such a capable author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolyn | 12/9/2011

    " I read this in high school. I kept a notebook to help me with the Russian character names. I still remember that the main character murdered an old woman (horribly) and the book was about his mental breakdown because of his act of violence. "
