While not as good as Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment, The Brothers Karmazov is a read that explores many elements of human nature. It took a long time to get into--about 200 pages--to get into the plot and figure out who was who with all the crazy Russian names flying around. Yes, 200 pages, but when you consider it is out of 700, that isn't too bad. In the end the characters in the book leave a deep impression on you. If you can handle a difficult introduction and knowing that it will be a long read, I recommend it. Encouraging right?
