The story tells of the inner turmoil of Rodion Raskolnikov, a student in St. Petersburg who commits murder.

Reviews


(5 stars)

This is the best book ever ! I love the audio and remember all characters now.

Amazing Reading!


(5 stars)

The voices are clear and the dramatic version is just fantastic!

Amazing grace for wretched sinners.


(5 stars)

Great story with outstanding insights into the human heart. Why is humanity full of glorious examples of love and charity and on the other side of such incredible cruelty and deceit? The answer is the fall of humanity in Eden from where the "virus" if sin spread over all the world(to which Dostoyevsky refers to in the Epilogue). The story was very intriguing and all characters well described, and - for the most part - excellently read! Thank you for this well-produced audio book!

best reading!


(5 stars)

this is by far the best version of the audiobook! i struggled to listen to other versions because they weren't read very well. this one is amazing tho! so much effort put into it! everyone in the cast did a great job!! I was so happy to find this since i really wanted to read this book, thank you so much everyone who made this.

Great reading of an epic


(5 stars)

There's not much I can say about how powerful and still relevant this novel is that hasn't already been said, chronicling Raskolnikov's decent and redemption. The reading is really good, in particular Raskolnikov himself, the two narrators, Dunya, Sonya and Porfiry the policeman all give really good readings. Nice work.

This reading really brought the text alive


(5 stars)

I really enjoyed this reading of the text. There were lots of really interesting voices that made it clear who was speaking. The final chapter is frighteningly prophetic about what is happening now in Spring 2022.

Great except some Russian pronunciations


(4 stars)

Generally, this was a great listen, except some of the native English speakers did not pronounce some Russian names well.


(4.5 stars)

Excellent audiobook. Wonderful performances from all dramatic personae. However, I only rate 4.5 stars because the volume is not quite consistent between voice actors.
