        Too clunky due to literal translation.

      There are a lot of bad P&V translations, but this is easily their best. My favorite Notes from Underground translation and I've read four of them I think.

        Notes from the underground is their worst one. First page alone makes me want to set it on fire.

    First part is a boring tirade against positivism and utilitarianism. Second part is kino up until the prostitute shows up.
    An unofficial sequel/remake of one of his first works (don't bother reading this one its pretty trash).

    Dosto's most personal work, but for this same reason not as good as the rest. Still very enjoyable

        The Prince of course. The Idiot is a fictionalized autobiography.

    It is the best novel I have ever read.
    Also, it had a good influence in my life.

      notes from underground has way more message into it but as a story it's a bit less interesting. NLH also deeply explores MC's psyche but he's too much of an individual to go into some universal conclusions, the tone is not parabolic, still it's a fun misery porn

    If you are alluding to Dostoevsky’s worst novels, then, indeed, I dislike intensely The Brothers Karamazov and the ghastly crime and Punishment rigamarole. No, I do not object to soul-searching and self-revelation, but in those books the soul, and the sins, and the sentimentality, and the journalese, hardly warrant the tedious and muddled search. Dostoyevsky’s lack of taste, his monotonous dealings with persons suffering with pre-Freudian complexes, the way he has of wallowing in the tragic misadventures of human dignity – all this is difficult to admire. I do not like this trick his characters have of ”sinning their way to Jesus” or, as a Russian author, Ivan Bunin, put it more bluntly, ”spilling Jesus all over the place." Crime and Punishment’s plot did not seem as incredibly banal in 1866 when the book was written as it does now when noble prostitutes are apt to be received a little cynically by experienced readers. Dostoyevsky never really got over the influence which the European mystery novel and the sentimental novel made upon him. The sentimental influence implied that kind of conflict he liked—placing virtuous people in pathetic situations and then extracting from these situations the last ounce of pathos. Non-Russian readers do not realize two things: that not all Russians love Dostoevsky as much as Americans do, and that most of those Russians who do, venerate him as a mystic and not as an artist. He was a prophet, a claptrap journalist and a slapdash comedian. I admit that some of his scenes, some of his tremendous farcical rows are extraordinarily amusing. But his sensitive murderers and soulful prostitutes are not to be endured for one moment—by this reader anyway. Dostoyevsky seems to have been chosen by the destiny of Russian letters to become Russia’s greatest playwright, but he took the wrong turning and wrote novels.

      I always look forward to this shitty copypasta in Dostoyevsky threads. It's like a scene from the Idiot, as though Lébedyev himself were trying to rouse the passions to elicit a more personal reaction from the crowd. Anon, you saucy rogue.

        I'm proud to say that other anons, like the one in this thread, have taken over the glorious tradition. I always saw the same tired praise of Dosto and wished for a deeper conversation, and Nabokov's critique carries just the polemic and stylistic flare to get the juices flowing. It's also somewhat amusing that the best way to break up the monotony of group-thinking IQfy and get an actual conversation has been to use a copypasta. Ironic!

    I was expecting something less funny, but it does remind me of No Longer Human. It's cringy if you try taking him seriously but good if you laugh along
