Summary

Raskolnikov, an impoverished student living in the St. Petersburg of the tsars, is determined to overreach his humanity and assert his untrammeled individual will. When he commits an act of murder and theft, he sets into motion a story that, for its excruciating suspense, its atmospheric vividness, and its depth of characterization and vision is almost unequaled in the literatures of the world.

The best known of Dostoevsky's masterpieces, "Crime and Punishment" can bear any amount of rereading without losing a drop of its power over our imaginations. Dostoevsky's drama of sin, guilt, and redemption transforms the sordid story of an old woman's murder into the nineteenth century's profoundest and most compelling philosophical novel.

Award-winning translators Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky render this elusive and wildly innovative novel with an energy, suppleness, and range of voice that do full justice to the genius of its creator.

Not the Pevear/Volokhonsky translation

Well read and easy to listen to but this is the Constance Garnet translation not that of Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky.

Not the Pevear and Volokhonsky translation!

I just find this amazing that the claim is that this is the "Award-winning translators Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky" -- but it is just the same old Constance Garnet translation that is already available in multiple versions on Audible.

Incredible.

I was hopeful for the criminal protagonist the entire book. So well done, so carefully crafted.
