Yathartha | 1 comments Hi guys,
I was thinking of reading Dostoyevsky. The only work of Dostoyevsky I've read before is The brothers Karamazov. And I would like some recommendations.
Thanks in advance

Crime and Punishment , of course. Check whether a P&V translation is available.

I am not a Dostoyevsky fan; hopefully others here can give you more diverse suggestions.

Crime and Punishment , of course. I'd use this P&V translation; it wasn't available when I read C&P.

I am not a Dostoyevsky fan; hopefully others here can give you more diverse suggestions. Do a Google search, too, and see what some of the articles suggest, since you are already so specific in looking for recommendations.

Crime and Punishment

Pip | 468 comments I read C&P on a friend's strong recommendation when I was at university, and loved it so much I read practically all the other novels in quick succession! I think C&P and The Brothers Karamazov still stand out as my favourites, though The House of the Dead, The Gambler and Notes from Underground are fantastic too.
