it was amazing
Read in February, 2007 — I own a copy , read count: 2

This has been on my "I really should read someday" list for a long time. I finally got around to it 2 years ago and have returned to it twice since. Much like other books I love it reads like a philosophy treatise interwoven with the intrigue, character development and historical narrative. I love the way that the protagonist, Alexey Fyodorovitch, cannot discover himself until he discovers his family, even as he realizes that in three distinct ways, his father and two brothers represent everything he has come to hate. His attempts to both embrace and rise above the sensualism of the Karamazov DNA is just one thread of a the dense rope of winding story that is the unique and seemingless bottomless gift of this book.
