Publisher's Summary

When Prince Dmitri Nekhludov is called for jury duty on a murder case, he little knows how the experience will change his life. Faced with the accused, a prostitute, he recognizes Katusha, the young girl he seduced and abandoned many years before, and realizes his responsibility for the life of degradation she has been forced to lead. His determination to make amends leads him into the darkest reaches of the Tsarist prison system, and to the beginning of his spiritual regeneration.
Based on a true story, Tolstoy’s final novel is a deeply moving and compassionate tale of human frailty and reformation.

Amazing wisdom and insight

This is the third Tolstoy novel I've listened to and am a dedicated fan. It is also my favorite thus far. His insight into the human condition as well as into questions of morality and spirituality are beyond compare with anything else I have ever read and I have been reading voracously since the age of 6.

Tolstoy's clear and simple way of expressing these insights are also like having a spiritual awakening yourself. It is no wonder he is considered a master and his work as classics. Like both "Anna Karenina" and "War and Peace" I will listen to this novel again as I get as much enjoyment and understanding the second time around with all the great Russian authors.

I also have to say that this narrator/performer is the best I've heard on Audible. I don't know what I did before Audible but with my busy life and the comute to work and getting some sort of workout in everyday, I would be deprived of amazing literature without It! This is definately a must listen.

Morals versus Ethics

This is an excellent study is meant to purposely demonstrate Tolstoy's thesis that our moral compass must drive and challenge societal mores and accepted codes of ethics in order to fully realize the good that lies within us all. The story and narration are apt vehicles to this end.

One of the best books I have experienced.

This is a long novel, well suited to an audio book. The narration was excellent, look forward to hearing it again in the future.
