Dostoyevsky

My literature recommendation for the year.

The Brothers Karamazov

By Fyodor Dostoyevsky

It is a long book (960 pages in 4 sections and an epilogue), but well worth the time to read. Dostoevsky has a subtlety and insight into the human condition that is unparalleled.

The story is a treatise on religion, politics and human nature.
