This extraordinary novel, Dostoyevsky s last and greatest work, tells the dramatic story of four brothers Dmitri, pleasure-seeking, impatient, unruly.

Braća Karamazovi by Fyodor Dostoyevsky (3 star ratings)

Ivan, brilliant and morose. Alyosha, gentle, loving, honest. Driven by intense bdaca, they become involved in the brutal murder of their own father, one of the most loathsome characters in all literature. Featuring the famous chapter, The Grand Inquisitor, Dostoyevsky’s final masterpiece is at once a complex character study, a riveting murder mystery, and a fascinating examination of man’s morality and the question of God’s existence.

Who among rbaca two represents the ‘intellectual’ dimension? The character of Smerdyakov is somewhat portrayed as ‘evil,’ but what karamzaovi his mind, or the way he posed his challenge to Ivan? Utkarsh Detha While it is true that Smerdyakov chose wrong means and lacked the virtues one is expected to have courage, honesty etc.

I think the reason behind this were the unjust norms of the society. Unlike Ivan, Smerdyakov the bastard had to live like a servant. He had no filial rights whatsoever.

He wanted to pursue his own dreams but for that he had no support from anyone. Even though Fyodor Karamazov was the worst a father could be, his legitimate sons enjoyed certain privileges that Smerdyakov did not. These privileges came with their name.

This was the main reason as far as I could understand why Smerdyakov devoted his intellect to petty issues, like manipulating others etc to achieve what he wanted He dreamed of moving to France.

Ivan on the other hand could afford to spend his intellectual resources on ‘lofty’ issues like the existence of god, etc. Smerdyakov was nearly as capable as Ivan, if not more. He was just deprived of the luxuries to him, they were luxuries that the name Karamazov gave to Ivan. He was able to manipulate Ivan, implant ideas in the minds of everyone and most remarkably the Prosecutor’s mind the Defense lawyer, Fetyukovich was able to see through his deception and considered him to be a very clever man.


This corroborates his superior intellect. I gave up on this book awhile ago because I disliked every single character and didn’t care to find out what happened to them. I’m thinking about going back to it now because I don’t like unfinished books.

Will someone tell me if any likable characters show up? I’m not very far in and will probably have to start over gahbut I need someone to like in this book. Kyle Beaudet In the beginning Dostoevsky is showcasing all of the flaws of the characters, and intentionally makes them all fairly unlikable, except for Alyosha …more In the beginning Dostoevsky is showcasing all of the flaws of the characters, and intentionally makes them all fairly unlikable, except for Alyosha whom is described as being like a cherub.

Though by the end of the novel do not be surprised if you are finding pieces of yourself in each and every character. Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia.

I have always been aware of the fact that it is one of the greatest novels ever written so I know I have to read it eventually.

The plot revolves around the murder of perhaps one of the most despicable characters ever created, Fyodor Pavlovich Karamazov, the father of the Karamazov brothers. This detail about the book only skims the surface because this only serves as the basic architecture for Dostoevsky’s philosophy. This novel isn’t so much a story as: The courtroom drama at the end of the novel, would be very hard to match in modern fiction.

Petersburg shows that all the supposedly incriminating circumstances of the case can be understood. Each figure in this household? He changes his mind after a severe illness, and his materialistic belief is replaced by intense spiritual curiosity; Alyosha is an idealist, lovable and loving. The story started out painfully slow. As with the rest of the book, there were many points where Dostoevsky seemed to descend into meaningless details that, to me, did nothing to advance the plot, atmosphere, or characterization.

I feel that the author is disconnected from his audience, and he doesn’t seem to care. This comes to a point where I think Dostoevsky frequently loses himself in the meshes of his own word spinning. The book goes off too many tangents and is densely verbose. I found pages of extraordinary depth and poignancy but they are few and far in between. I find it hard to connect with any of the characters since their personalities are diluted by the manic and morbidly intense verbal flow.

Half the book was one of the Karamazovs talking on and on, uninterrupted to an audience as silent and passive as the reader. I frequently spaced out and have to backtrack. I eventually found myself reading this book in a grim desire to finish it and be done, rather than out of a sense of enjoyment. I admired author’s insights into human nature, but all too often, he seemed to make grand proclamations arbitrarily that have little evidence behind them.

As if by declaring them with confidence he somehow made them true beyond question. And for whatever unaccountable reason, his preoccupations landed like a relic in my own life. View all 19 comments.


Brothers Karamazov is an exceptionally tricky and intricate book. It’s also an exceptional pain in the ass. The first problem is when a speech is so long that it reminds you of Kafamazovi Shrugged. The second problem is that when I finished it just now, the words that unconsciously escaped my mouth were, “Well, fuck you Karamazov.

Braća Karamazovi (The Brothers Karamazov #1-2)

Don’t be reckless with other peoples’ hearts; don’t put up with people who are reckless with yours. Keep company with yourself and look to yourself every day and hour, every minute. Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth. Cherish your ecstasy, however senseless it may seem. Answers at end of review Okay, I almost never had a good time reading this book. Why’d I give karamazvi four stars? Listen, I know this book’s smarter than me.

Its inventiveness is impressive. Watch how careful Dostoevsky is with words: Check out how the stories – Ilyusha and Dmitri, Katya and Grushenka – intertwine. Feel how the word “Karamazovian” implants itself in you: Debate whether the whole thing is a comedy or a tragedy. Before I read them, I used to think Tolstoy and Dostoevsky were probably more or less the same, y’know?

Like, old Russian guys who wrote crazy long books, how different can they be? But they’re not the same at all. Tolstoy is exceptionally controlled. Dostoevsky is pure virtuosity. But the energy behind it is more or less insane. Four stars because I know this book is good; if I give it two stars, it would be like admitting that I let a brilliant masterpiece escape me for the prosaic reason that it’s incredibly fucking boring.

It gives you great background. Get out quick after that though – right after “transforming them finally into a universal human drama” – ’cause they’re gonna blow the whole plot in the next paragraph. I forget which brother is which Liz M. Start with Crime and Punishment. It’s a better read.

Dane causes scandal in online literary circles, admitting: Do you have a comment? Why would I have a comment? An explanation is called for. I liked the overall idea, the philosophical questioning of ideas, but it seemed to vacillate back and forth between the exploration of ideas — with the characters representing different ethical positions — and a melodrama brimming with pathos. Frankly, that is part of the point.

Dostoevsky wrote philosophical novels, as you must be aware. I even agree with much of what is expressed in the novel.

I can relate to that.
