Publisher's Summary

"White Nights" is the third major Dostoyevsky short story everyone should read or listen to, along with "A Faint Heart" and "The Christmas Tree and Wedding". The story contains a series of Winesburg, Ohio-like moments: a woman and man meet accidentally on the First Night; proceed to meet again on the Second and Third, almost fall in love, and at the last minute the former lover of the woman returns to take her away. But the point is that the man had a moment, a glorious moment when, for the first time in his life, he had something special. Was that enough? That is the question the author leaves us with.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I felt like the narrator was reading un-enthusiastically in a high school English class. He simply read the words on the page, pausing at seeming random intervals to take a breath with no consideration for punctuation.

I wish it was dramatized.

Somewhat hard to understand who is speaking when. So a dramatized version would have been a lot easier to follow. But overall not too bad. A short little classic. And intro to the authors work.
