Thorough and Captivating!

One of the most thorough and captivating Audiobooks that I have ever stumbled across! This is perfect to listen to during long car rides, or while doing chores around the house. Not only is it historically accurate, but the story is told in a way that will leave you pondering for hours after you hit stop!

96 Hours of Classic Fiction

From sheer volume alone this is probably worth it. The performance was decent: character voices were great but the narrative voice was a little off for me (call it a push). The stories are of course classics … one of which (Crime and Punishment) I had already read in High School many eons ago and didn’t particularly care for it (I have issues with the protagonist); however, I recently had the Brothers Karamazov recommended to me and rather than reading through the another huge story by a famous author for whom I should appreciate his works more than I do, I figured an audiobook would be a good way to do this …

And I was absolutely spot on here. In my mind, it is the only way to “casually” read Dostroyevsky (Yes, I know that is heresy) … save the reading for your lit class when you have to dig into weird philosophical concepts that you have small interest in. As an audiobook, it was really wasn’t so bad.

I was given this free advance listener copy (ALC) audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

A Must-Have In Your Library!

This is an excellent purchase! A collection of Russian author Fyodor Dostoyevsky's great works, it includes Crime and Punishment, The Idiot, and The Brothers Karamazov, as well as his novella Notes From The Underground. I have long intended to read his work, especially Crime and Punishment. It is a gripping story involving a murder and the resulting fallout while the police hunt the murderer (the main character). Themes in this novel are dark and disturbing, but the work is an absolute masterpiece.
Though that was my favorite, I enjoyed listening to ALL of these while exercising and relaxing. I recommend this to both anyone who is a fan of Dostoyevsky, or who has not yet read any of these!

Love this collection!

This collection was the perfect combination of Dostoyevsky's works, some I had read before and some new to me! the narration was very interesting and engaging as well. it is quite a long narration and made for an excellent audio book for our road trip. I love the different voices he does for the different characters! Definitely would listen to more from this narrator.

Makes Dostoyevsky easy listening!

I’ve never had the chance to read or experience any of Dostoyevsky’s works, until now. While some may prefer a more dramatic narrator, I appreciated Michael Harding’s easy and clear tone. He helps listeners stay engaged in the story, while also having authentic Russian pronunciations. During all four works I felt that I was easily able to follow along.

Great story.

It’s a great book that goes deeply into detail. Very well thought out, not a single detail missing. The only downside is the book is lengthy, but if you are invested you will appreciate the length of the book. You never know what to expect next! It goes so far into detail, you feel like you know the characters and the story it tells is insane. In all, this is a very interesting read/listen and if you are looking for something to really invest your time into, this is the book for you!

Dedicate time to listen.

Not a title you can leisurely listen to and do other things as it will pull you in to every single word. The fluctuations in the narrators tone really have you giving your full attention. I personally prefer a narrator who is easier to follow in a more diverse setting, and can have the story flow a bit better! Only reason for four stars.


Overall a great listen and the stories are very very captivating. Gives a great picture into the characters lives and some juicy plot turns along the way.

Visceral, Honest, Great Collection

Haven’t picked up Dostoyevsky since school but this collection was a must get. All the greatest hits are in there and it was great being able to experience the underlying tension again that’s indicative of all his writings. Narrator did a solid job, I like that he kept it straight and stayed away from that dramatic, far off tone some readers take on when trying to relay these types of writings. It’s a long collection, great for my next road trip.

Captivating Listen!

This collection of stories paired with the narrator paint the picture of a dramatic murder mystery told at a thrilling pace. Not usually a fan of classic literature but this listen was entertaining and captivating. Would recommend the individual books as book club reads! Lots of character development to discuss.
