Karen Michele Burns My son just recommended that I make sure to get the Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky translation. We both read and enjoyed their translation of The Brothers Karamazov.
Phil In my opinion, P/V is all hype. Several books I've read in P/V I've liked much better re-reading in other translations. I always love Garnett so I'm sure you can't go wrong w/ her translation of this book. I just finished the Katz translation, which reads really well and like Garnett comes w/ an audio version too.
Mysch A If you are still interested then I can offer you my own translation of this epic work. I don't think I did a very good job because I can't read russian.
Ravi lobo I started P/V translation; but gave up after about 100 pages. Now I'm reading Penguin (Robert Maguire) translation. This one seems very smooth. I'd recommend this one.
