Summary

"White Nights" is one of Dostoyevsky's shorter works told from the standpoint of an ultimate introvert, brought briefly out of his shell by love. It might have been written 170 years ago, but certain aspects of it are very relatable to the modern listener, especially to those of us who gravitate toward solitude and introversion.

Emotional rollercoaster

I related so hard the poor guys loneliness, that I was crying for a good while while listening. But that said, I'm better for having heard the story.
Oh, and good narrator!

Enjoyable listen

I enjoyed listening to something different to my usual choices. Sensitively narrated, drawing the listener into the story.
