The Brothers Karamazov
by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Publisher: The Lowell Press 1911
Number of pages: 752
The final novel by Fyodor Dostoyevsky and generally considered to be his masterpiece. It is the story of Fyodor Karamazov and his sons Alyosha, Dmitry, and Ivan. It is also a story of patricide, into the sordid unfolding of which Dostoyevsky introduces a love-hate struggle with profound psychological and spiritual implications. Throughout the whole novel there persists a search for faith, for God--the central idea of the work.

The book marks the dividing line between classic and 20th century fiction, and between the visions that each century embodied. The narrator is a man who has withdrawn to an underground existence. Definitely author’s most revolutionary novel.
