Shredder | 20 comments I noticed that there are about 4 or 5 different publishers for the classic "The Brothers Karamazov". I took a cursory look at the chapter titles and the words on the last page to see if two of the books match in translation content, but it seems not. They seem to have been translated by different persons.

So I wanted to ask which one I should buy:
which one is better translated.

Bantam Classics
Dover
Oxford
Vintage Classics
Classic Library (looks like a diary)

Besides, What do you think of the novel?

Thanks in advance for any help, much appreciated!

Wow. This is a great book! I read the Bantam version that was translated by Andrew MacAndrews. I would love to know what you think of this one once you are done!

I am also moving this to the Recommendations Folder...
