As someone who has read over a thousand books of literarure ranging from the time of Homer, to Shakespeare, to Kafka, to Steinbeck, I can honestly say that 'The Brothers Karamazov' is arguably the greatest work of fiction ever produced. This book is Dostoevsky at his best. He said that if he had written this book, then he would have fully expressed himself. Well he did, and he did a magnificent work. This book is worth reading from start to finish (don't just watch the movie! It sucks!). From the moment you read about the perculiar character that is Fyodor Karamazov, you instantly want to know more about this story of murder, betrayel, love and intrigue. In this book you will find find romance, suspence, horror, philosophy, theology, and so many allussions to other artistic works that you will feel proud to recognize such references. If you have not already, give this book a chance, I swear that you will not regret it. And if you haven't read this book, then you are not a reader.
