Description

Isolated from society in a tenement basement in St. Petersburg, a malicious former civil servant vents his resentments. In the rambling notes that follow, we are exposed to the inner turmoil of the Underground Man, who represents the voice of his generation. An emotional, paranoid knot of contradictions, the spiteful narrator is also desperate to join a society he loathes, if only to prove his superiority to it.

Exploring themes of free will versus determinism, Dostoyevsky's existential exploration was written to challenge increasingly popular Western egoist philosophies. In the Underground Man, he found the embodiment of the antihero, whose behavior - like all human behavior - defies rationalization.

Amazing

amazing book. i compared it to my own psych. thr book teaches that we are often stuck in our own heads and the "reality" of the situation at hand is actually quite different than what is in our minds.

Well produced

I have meant to get around this book on the kindle for quite some time but stopped a few pages in. Much due to the nature of the book, obviously not a light read.
But having come across it on audible I tried it and enjoyed the format. Well recommended

Amazing

I have always heard Dostoyevsky was a genius but never read any of his work. This is the first book from him I have listened to and it is the most insightful look into human nature and lies we tell even to ourselves that I have ever heard. I can't wait to download more from him.

A gripping analysis into the pits of pessimism.

In this short but dense work, Dostoyevsky sets you into the mind of a man who has thoroughly dedicated himself to vice and depravity. Having spent the majority of his life "underground", the story is told through the events of one day in which the main character lets loose his demons in an attempt to take vengance on the social world that he had been brooding over for so long. The orators voice sounds blunt and rude just as would be fitting for this style of character.
