    " An important work of great Russian literature. Dostoyevsky tells the tale of the 4 brothers Karamazov and their dissipated father. The novel touches on great themes of faith vs doubt, free will or lack of free will, the existence of God and the meaning of redemption. The book is masterfully written and a difficult but joyous read. "

    " Overall a very good book. The story moves a little slowly in the first half as there is a lot of character development happening with less plot movement. The second half of the book more than makes up for it as you see these complex characters take their places in the many concurrent stories and themes. I found myself thinking a lot about fatherhood towards the end of the book and have read a little bit about Dostoyevsky's life to better understand his perspective when he wrote this. I would like to read more about his life and times. "

    " "The Brothers Karamazov" is one of the greatest novels of all time. From the way Dostoevsky paints a picture of tsarist Russia, to the complexity and depth of his characters, to the gripping murder mystery that will leave you guessing (provided you've been lucky enough to avoid any spoilers), this novel is truly a masterwork from one of the greatest writers of all time. Yes, it's long. Very long. And if you've got a bad translation, the writing can seem a bit dense and chunky. But reading this book is worth every minute, because each and every page has the potential to share something profound and moving. This novel is beautiful in its simplicity, rapturous in its complexity. It reveals hidden truths about the world and humanity, and at its best, it offers ecstatic glimpses of the divine. It's just too damn good. Read this book. Even if you already know who killed the elder Karamazov, read it anyway. It's just that good. "

    " The book is very Russian as you might expect. But once you get over that and the fact that both the writer and the story take place quite a LONG TIME ago. It's incredibly moving story. Not usually something I read. But I did really enjoy it. "
