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.

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.

Engaging story with so much value to general life and different perspectives. It was an excellent choice of narrator, who carried and delivered it impeccably. The last two words missing off the entire book however took the shine off at the last possible moment. The missing words are 'has ended'. Please amend this Audible because it is not obvious how to contact you.

Was originally published in weekly episodes apparently:this is 'soap opera' for thinking people. Will reward.
