    " well f*ck me sideways, I did it! I finished this monumental book. Sometimes at a pace of 10 to 20 pages a day, but i got there in the end and it was well worth the ride. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthew Klobucher | 1/17/2014

    " Given it's formidable reputation, I was nervous to read this book. I needn't have worried--the translation I had made it a very engaging story provided I followed the intricacies of relationships and occurrences among the large cast of characters and (almost more importantly) the occurrences that simply existed around the character. Accessible and evocative, this follows the complicated lives of multiple brothers of the Karamazov and their associates. Dramatic loves and affairs, ideological struggles, the conflict between faith and reason, and the effects of greed and pride are all drawn clearly in the very detailed characters and their growth. Overall a stunning novel with an ending as cathartic as it was unexpected (for me at least). It's easy to see why this book is a classic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Terri Jacobson | 1/12/2014

    " 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. "

    " Impressive. The ultimate biography of mankind. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul Koenen | 12/22/2013

    " My Favorite. Read it multiple times. Great psychological study of three (plus) brothers, and family, whose lifestyles, beliefs, passions, and interactions are all very different, very rich, yet all appealing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ramón Vázquez-gómez | 12/16/2013

    " though i don't normally read long books, i've always been fond of dostoyevsky, the plot to kill one's father is fuckin cool! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robert Kloss | 12/2/2013

    " Rating a novel this great is disgusting... as for a review, I will only say that while I will probably always be partial to Moby Dick, The Brothers Karamavoz is probably the greatest novel ever written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jacob Harris | 11/17/2013

    " The translation is brilliant - its inviting and it really makes this intimidating tome readable. Dostoevsky packs a lot of philosophy into this book, which makes Brothers an incredibly satisfying read. "

    " Could not finish it :( Maybe will try again in a few years... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 4/7/2013

    " I'm looking forward to reading this again and/or discussing it with a group. I enjoyed it but felt that I barely scratched the surface in understanding what Dostoyevsky is trying to say. "

    " Really the only reason I married a man named Ivan. "

    " Read it as a teen and I would classify it as being one of the first mystery novels...came out right around the time of Sherlock Holmes, before that genre existed. "

    " Read this circa 1978, want to reread. I'll probably get more out of it now. "

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

    " The first time I read this, I thought it would kill me. Now I hold it as a measuring point for other books. And I think it could kill most books in page to page combat. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alberto | 5/10/2011

    " The Brothers Karamazov, included in Time Magazine's 10 Greatest Books of All Time, proves to be one great reading experience. The large discourse on philosophy, religion is a highlight in this last book of Dostoyevsky. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 joe | 5/6/2011

    " a very unusual story. there's a lot to read into and a fair amount of social commentary and philosophical implications surrounding the death/murder of the asshole dad. Does god exist? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ravi | 5/6/2011

    " the author is extemely details in his descrption of the characters of the brothers and the plot and it was a bit too tedious for me for a comfortable read.... returned it back after around 90 pages of reading..will take it up again in leisure and read it .. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Swallowfeather | 5/5/2011

    " *The* classic. What can I say? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ben | 5/3/2011

    " 300 pages with these dreadful characters was enough. 550 more pages to go.....not for me. I'm done with Dostoyevsky. I'm done with russians as a group. "
