Description

A century after it first appeared, Crime and Punishment remains one of the most gripping psychological thrillers. A poverty-stricken young man, seeing his family making sacrifices for him, is faced with an opportunity to solve his financial problems with one simple but horrifying act: the murder of a pawnbroker. She is, he feels, just a parasite on society. But does the end justify the means? Rodion Romanovitch Raskolnikov makes his decision and then has to live with it. Dostoyevsky, in masterly fashion, contrasts the comedy and tragedy of life in St. Petersburg with the anguish and turmoil of Raskolnikov's inner life.

Great!

Dostoyevsky's novels are among the very best ever written. This narration is excellent; I listened to it a second time as soon as I completed it. The themes of the book are timeless and are as vital today as they were in Dostoyevsky's day.

A masterpiece

Dostoyevsky's timeless "Crime and Punishment" has been masterfully recorded by Gregory. The story is by no means enjoyable, it is the account of a tormented soul and the effect it produces on the reader / listener is a wildly fascinating blend of despair over the injustice of the world and awe of the "mad russian's" magnificent story telling.

Gregory's narration is excellent, he produces characters perfectly distinct from each other by means of ever so slight changes in intonation, without emplying "mock-voices". His protagonists are authentic and their individual voices bare the complex ethical nuances Dostoyevsky intended for them.

All in all, to those unfamiliar with this work, it is in my opinion the ideal way of consuming one of the most fantastic literary pieces of all time.

A true classic, a masterpiece!

Fyodor Dostoyevsky originally released Crime and Punishment in a monthly magazine in 1866 in 12 parts. I listened to it one or 2 chapters a day during one month. It is everything that has been written about it. Constantine Gregory's narration does the masterpiece justice.

The Reader is Equal to the Material.

Any additional comments?

Crime and Punishment is a Great Book with characters that delve into profound psychological, spiritual, social and political themes, revealing Dostoevsky’s insight into the human condition.

Mr. Gregory places his extraordinary depth of understanding and artistry at our service as he leads us on Raskolnikov’s journey through the neighborhoods of St. Petersburg and his psyche. Gregory’s Russian background lends a cultural accuracy to his pronunciation and enhances the experience of the story’s environment and atmosphere. I got more out of the novel by listening to this reader than I would have if I’d only read the book myself. I promise that you will be thrilled by moments when you realize that not only have you completely entered into the story but Mr. Gregory has, too.

He portrays the excruciating conflict of Rodia's madness and philosophy; Razumikhin’s optimism; the delicacy and nobility of Raskolnikov's mother and sister; Svidrigailov’s complexity; Porfiry Petrovich’s patience – and he makes it seem effortless – the true mark of a master.

Outstanding passages include:
Raskolnikov’s interior monologue at end of Part III
Porfiry Petrovich Part VI, Chapter II
Dmitry Prokofyich Vrazumikhin - Part II, Chapter IV (Anywhere, actually!)
Arkady Ivanovich Svidrigaïlov - Part VI, Chapter VI (I was most impressed by the portrayal of this most complicated character.

I predict that in 50 years this recording of Crime and Punishment will be considered a classic and a lasting legacy of Constantine Gregory.

Marvelous

Although I would have liked to listen to a better translation of the book, the performance by Constantine Gregory is simply matchless. Fascinating book and stunning reader.

Need a newer translation

The story itself is a stroke of genius, but the translation is outdated, making some of the scenes too difficult to understand or visualize. Admittedly, this is probably partially Dostoevsky's fault, his writing is known for its profound philosophy and psychology, not its vividness; that said, there are scenes that are meant to be emotional that simply aren't because the language used to describe them isn't familiar enough to this reader. Knowing what a word strictly means and knowing what it's nuances are are two different things. I was still astounded at the timelessness of the ideas.

Good story, reading

Well it's Dostoyevsky, what is there to say? Very depressing and long winded, but at the heart of it, a really interesting story. Most books suffer terribly from abridgment - I dare say this would not. The most enjoyable parts of this book is when the main character is discussing the nature of crime and who may commit it. More often than not, though, it was a rather boring angst-fest. I hate to say that, but there it is. The reader did quite a good job, I enjoyed the performance!
