    If you like your books to move in a linear fashion this book is not for you It hops around and attention must be paid or you will find yourself flipping back a few pages to reestablish the thread of the story I took this on a plane flight, crazy right Not exactly the normal light reading I take on flights It was a stroke of genius I absolutely fell under the thrall of Dostoyevky s prose Thank you to my fellow travelers who didn t feel the need to chat with the guy who obviously is s...

    I m writing this review as I read Frankly, I m astounded by how good this is and how compelling I m finding it Astounded Why should that be This is a classic, after all True, but it breaks just about every rule of fiction The plot so far is virtually nonexistent three brothers get together with their wastrel father and all sorts of dysfunction, including an odd love triangle involving the father and the eldest son, are revealed The brothers aren t particular close to each other, and re I m writing this review as I read Frankly, I m astounded by how good this is and how compelling I m finding it Astounded Why should that be This is a classic, after all True, but it breaks just about every rule of fiction The plot so far is virtually nonexistent three brothers get together with their wastrel father and all sorts of dysfunction, including an odd love triangle involving the father and the eldest son, are revealed The brothers aren t particular close to each other, and really not much happens except that they meet at a monastery, where the youngest son lives, for an audience with a holy man who s dying, and then they go their separate ways, except that they have kind of random meetings with each other and with the woman involved in...

    Contrary to widespread rumor, this is a far from bleak book While every character has his or her own misery, and it all takes place in a place called something like cattle roundup ville , the moments of religious ecstasy and moral clarity are heartbreaking in their frequency it s hard not to wish that one had such bizarre events going on around one in order to prompt such lofty oratory.The story involves Ivan, Dmitri, Alyosha, and Smerdyakov, four brothers with a rich but notoriously lechero Contrary to widespread rumor, this is a far from bleak book While every character has his or her own misery, and it all takes place in a place called something like cattle roundup ville , the moments of religious ecstasy and moral clarity are heartbreaking in their frequency it s hard not to wish that one had such bizarre events going on around one in order to prompt such lofty oratory.The story involves Ivan, Dmitri, Alyosha, and Smerdyakov, four brothers with a rich but notoriously lecher...

    Hurrah for Karamazov Those are the concluding words of this bombastic brick of a book I amthan willing to chime in, to cheer for the brothers Karamazov who finally, finally made me give in to the genius of Dostoevsky fully, without anger, without resentment and fight, after a year of grappling with his earlier novels.This is doubtless his magnum opus, the shining lead star in a brilliant cosmos There are many similarities to his earlier novels, and his characters fight with the same i Hurrah for Karamazov Those are the concluding words of this bombastic brick of a book I amthan willing to chime in, to cheer for the brothers Karamazov who finally, finally made me give in to the genius of Dostoevsky fully, without anger, without resentment and fight, after a year of grappling with his earlier novels.This is doubtless his magnum opus, the shining lead star in a brilliant cosmos There are many similarities to his earlier novels, and his characters fight with the same inner demons as the predecessors And yet, there is something milder,soothing in the Brothers Karamazov, there is mature perfection in this novel Yes, Smerdyakov is an underpriv...

    I finished reading this book at precisely 0205 hours today The night still lay majestically over the impending dawn, and in its blackened stillness, swayed the echoes of this imperious book The walls of my room, at once, turned into a fortress for Dostoevsky s army of thoughts, and I, right in the middle of it, found...

    Above all, avoid lies, all lies, especially the lie to yourself Keep watch on your own lie and examine it every hour, every minute And avoid contempt, both of others and of yourself what seems bad to you in yourself is purified by the very fact that you have noticed it in yourself And avoid fear, though fear is simply the consequence of every lie. 57 Family You cannot pick You are either happy to be around them or you are stuck with them You can choose your friends, a pet, you can choo...
