Description

"I am a sick man...I am a spiteful man," a nameless voice cries out. And so, from underground, emerge the passionate confessions of a suffering man; the painful self-examination of a tormented soul; the bristling scorn of a lonely individual who has become one of the greatest anti-heroes in all literature. Notes from Underground reveals Fyodor Dostoevsky on the threshold of genius, discovering the ideas that would later lead him to create his most monumental novels: Crime and Punishment, The Idiot, and The Brothers Karamazov. Those who are familiar with his works will immediately recognize the novel's richly complex philosophical, political, and psychological themes; those who are not will find in their hands the best introduction to Dostoevsky's grander masterpieces. Notes from Underground will deepen your understanding of a giant among writers of world literature - a man who continues to influence the greatest thinkers and writers in the Western world today.

Professional reviews

"Recorded Books has done it again. This production of Dostoevsky's work is stark, dark and eerie. On the surface the story of one man's rant against a corrupt, oppressive society, this philosophical book explores the deeper themes of alienation, torment and hatred. George Guidall's expert reading allows us to hear the anger and distrust in Dostoevsky's character but also gives the listener room for interpretation. While Guidall's voice isn't overpowering, the venom and despair of the character are completely credible. The production is lean--one voice, one microphone. The effect is intelligent, resourceful and effective. R.I.G. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
