    One thought on “The Brothers Karamazov”

    1. If there was still any doubt, let me confirm that this actually is the greatest book ever written. But be warned that you need to set aside a solid month to get through it. And it's not light reading--this is a dense work of philosophy disguised as a simple murder mystery. But it's well worth the effort. It tackles the fundamental question of human existence--how best to live one's life--in a truly engaging way. Dostoevsky created 3 brothers (Ivan, Alexei, and Dmitri) with opposite answers to th [...]

    2. “The Brothers Karamazov” has intrigued me for years. I have always been aware of the fact that it is one of the greatest novels ever written so I know I have to read it eventually. Finally, after reading it, I think I get why this is considered great literature-- and though I can't exactly say that I loved it, I admit that I don’t regret reading it. The plot revolves around the murder of perhaps one of the most despicable characters ever created, Fyodor Pavlovich Karamazov, the father of t [...]

    3. 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 so fr [...]

    4. 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 [...]

    5. 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 [...]

    6. 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 myself besieged with its diverse, haphazard but mighty blizzard. I am no stranger to this rambling Russian’s precocious visions and forbearance and yet, and yet, this work, sw [...]

    7. On Romancing The DevilWarning: This review might contain spoilers even outside the hidden 'spoiler alert' regions. I honestly am not capable of discriminating.The book is not about the murder or about who did it, those things were very apparent before half the book was completed - the narrator taking special pains to spoil all suspense for his readers at the very beginning (harkening back to the days of greek drama and Euripides - according to whom, the effect of a story, even a whodunnit, was [...]

    8. “Hurrah for Karamazov!” Those are the concluding words of this bombastic brick of a book. I am more than 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 sa [...]

    9. Helen Ροζουλί Εωσφόρος Vernus Portitor Arcanus Ταμετούρο Αμούν Arnum says:

      Αδελφοί Καραμάζοφ: η τέλεια τραγωδία. Ένα έργο ευσυνείδητης μεγαλοφυΐας, αποκορύφωση, διακριτή ως επίτευγμα στην υπαρξιακή παράδοση της ανθρωπότητας και στα παγκόσμια λογοτεχνικά πρόσωπα. Η πατρίδα όλων των ανθρώπων βρίσκεται σίγουρα στην καρδιά αυτών των μεγάλων τραγωδ [...]

    10. "La cuestión principal que se tratará en todas las partes de este libro es la misma que me ha hecho sufrir consciente o inconscientemente: la existencia de Dios." Esta frase resume toda la epopeya karamazoviana que Fiódor Dostoievski encarara a final de su vida en esta obra literaria monumental y que le llevara tres años de apretada y sufrida elaboración. Dostoievski, que había tenido una vida plena de emociones iba a culminar su propia carrera con un libro perfecto, más allá de que ten [...]

    11. 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 choos [...]

    13. Russian novels always get better of me, I am left battered both body and mind. But the exhaustion is like the exhaustion of sex (can’t find more fitting analogy) breathless and full of life at the same. Like the traveler who was long gone on a journey and on his return, bathes for a long good hour, taking good care of every little pore of body, soaping himself as he sinks in tub very slowly, and as water pours over him he shuts his eyes and with numbing senses recalls everything in an episodic [...]

    14. Someone: Helloooo… yoo-hoo…. Fucktard, you there?Ben: Yes, I'm here I finished The Brothers Karamazov the other night and I'm a bit blown away. Emotionally exhausted. Right now, it has me sitting here thinking about it, feeling all kinds of things, thinking complex, important thoughts.Someone: The great Fyodor Dostoevsky should do that to you. He's a literary Giant; one of the all time greats. But you see, knowing you, shitfuck, I'm not surprised you gave it five stars. You give everything f [...]

Hanno ragione.Tremila rubli.Pasticcio di pesce (quasi sempre freddo).Il sangue dei Karamazov porta sfiga.“Anche in te che sei un angelo vive questo insetto e suscita nel tuo sangue delle tempeste”.L’eredità va sudata.Caccia i tremila rubli o succede un bordello.Gente ubriaca.

    17. “I am big; it’s the pictures that got small”In Considering the Lobster, David Foster Wallace observes that the “thing about Dostoevsky’s characters is that they are alive" (264). They are, in fact, larger than life, and Wallace goes on to bemoan the fact that so many “of the novelists of our own place and time look so thematically shallow and lightweight…in comparison to Gogol or Dostoevsky” (271). Like Norma Desmond, who feels the pictures have gotten small, Wallace sees contemp [...]

    18. I will generally finish a novel no matter whatbut I could not push through this one. I have tried twice, so I suppose this is going to be a novel that doesn't ever make it to my "read" list.UPDATE: It took me three starts and an unusual amount of determination to finish this novel. I was inches away from abandoning it for good and all. I am glad I didn’t, but believe me when I say I hope I never encounter a book this hard to endure again in my reading lifetime.The themes Dostoevsky tackles alo [...]

    20. The Brothers Karamazov is the greatest novel… The Brothers Karamazov is the greatest grotesque novel. And I’m afraid my interpretations of it will hardly be popular.What is God? What is man? And what are their relationships?“You see, I close my eyes and think: if everyone has faith, where does it come from? And then they say that it all came originally from fear of the awesome phenomena of nature, and that there is nothing to it at all. What? I think, all my life I’ve believed, then I di [...]

    21. Dark abysses in moonless skies will engulf the titillating brightness of stars and ghastly winters will obliterate the warmth of the earth until justice has been done. Recline comfortably in your velvety chaise longue and concentrate on the spectacle that is about to begin, for the so much awaited day of the trial has arrived and the Karamazov family will be submitted to relentless interrogation, psychological scrutiny and the righteous proof of circumstantial evidence. There is humor, melodrama [...]

    23. This is a review both of the book and the translation. See my review ofCrime and Punishment for an explanation of why I don't entirely like this translation -- the authors sacrifice clarity and readability for technical accuracy in a way that tends to obscure the meaning. That said, though, it's a very good one, and I'd give it a four out of five. My pet peeve in most translations is the choice of the word "meek" instead of "gentle". These have utterly different connotations in modern English, a [...]

    24. Once a upon a time there were three brothers (view spoiler)[actually there aren't, but that's a spoiler (hide spoiler)], Dmitri, Ivan and Alexei, who went forth into the world each bearing a legacy from their parents. Along their way they each use the gifts they have to deal with the problems that lie in their path. First Dmitri, the eldest brother who is strong and powerful, falls by the wayside and then Ivan, the middle brother who is clever and educated falls by the wayside, but Alexei, littl [...]

    25. Ask me what book has now transformed my thought about what literature can do and I will name this book. Ask me about a book whose characters I will reference for years—not because they were so relatable or lovable but because they were replacements of philosophical thought—and I will name Alyosha, Ivan, and Mitya. Ask me about an author whose works I won’t mind reading and rereading, and I will name Fyodor Dostoevsky.To think, before reading this, I didn’t even know how to properly prono [...]

    26. Wait a secFuck the five stars!★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★It actually hurts to give it only five. Need I say that this book must be considered one of the wonders of mankind? Would it be necessary to talk about Dostoyevsky's extraordinary ability to create such interesting and realistic characters, or the fact that he was a master of the human psyche? This, of course, is an understatement. Check Ivan [...]

    27. Sau, un subtitlu subiectiv: CONSECINŢELE DRASTICE ALE RAŢIONALISMULUI, URMĂRILE DEZASTRUOASE ALE EMPIRISMULUI ŞI FERICITA CALE DE MIJLOC. Încep cu puncte de suspensie, căci nu se poate altfel atunci când ÎNCERCI să spui câteva cuvinte despre "Fraţii Karamazov". Triunghiul Alexei-Ivan-Dimitri. Societatea rusească din secolul al XIX-lea?! No way. Timpul -secolul al XIX-lea- şi spaţiul -Rusia- nu reprezintă decât un fundal pe care Dostoievski îşi aşterne personajele, căci în ca [...]

    28. واقعا نمی‌دانم این داستایوسکی کیست! یک نابغه‌ی داستان‌نویسی؟ یک فیلسوف اگزیستانسیالیست؟ یک دیوانه؟فقط این را می‌دانم که لذت خواندن رمان‌هایش را هیچ وقت فراموش نمی‌کنم. آن از "قمارباز" که تمام یک فرهنگ و گوهر یک قوم بزرگ را در گیرودار یک نوع قمار به نام رولت روایت می‌کند و [...]

    29. Second reading inspired by (1) Albert Camus's The Rebel: An Essay on Man in Revolt, wherein the patricidal justifications of Ivan Fyodorovich Karamazov are considered at length; and (2) the Mount Athos Journal, which closes out The Broken Road: From the Iron Gates to Mount Athos, the last volume of Patrick Leigh Fermor's Danube Trilogy. The journal recounts PLF's visits to the many Greek Orthodox monasteries on the peninsula in Jan-Feb 1935. I'm also curious to see if I can make it all the way t [...]

    30. Brothers Karamazov is an exceptionally tricky and intricate book. It's also an exceptional pain in the ass. I might have to create a new shelf for it called "I'd Have To Read It Again To Get It But I'd Rather Just Not Get It." Tristram Shandy can join it there. The first problem is when a speech is so long that it reminds you of Atlas Shrugged. The second problem is that when I finished it just now, the words that unconsciously escaped my mouth were, "Well, fuck you Karamazov."Here's a game I ma [...]
