Publisher's Summary

Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky is considered one of the greatest Russian writers. His works have had a profound and lasting effect on 20th-century literature. His psychological penetration into the human soul had, in novels like Crime and Punishment and The Brothers Karamazov, a profound influence on the 20th century novel. He also wrote a number of brilliant short stories along these same lines. "The Wedding" is one of his best.

Audible Editor Reviews

In Dostoyevksy's short story "The Wedding", the narrator recounts a Christmas party he went to in the past, and the observations he made there. Written in a conversational style and narrated clearly and unpretentiously by Walter Zimmerman, the story delves into the subject of greed, making sharp commentary on class and society in mid-19th-century Russia. This is a short audiobook - only 20 minutes long - but it's a true gem, every bit as praiseworthy as Dostoyevsky's more famous novels.

A Rare Gem of a Short Story

Dostoevsky did not write many short stories so this is a rare gem. This is a very, very good short story narrated excellently. It is dark, surprising, touching, and real. A real bargain at a buck (don’t waste a full credit).

Good story

I didn't realize Dostoevsky wrote short stories and was delighted to see - and hear this. Excellent story and very well read.
