The Brothers Karamazov was written by Fyodor Dostoyevsky (1821-1881). It was written on two levels. On the surface, it is the story of a death of a father, where all three sons share varying degrees of complicity. But on a deeper level, it is a spiritual drama of moral struggles between faith, doubt, reason, and free will. Dostoyevsky interwove themes of a struggling family, the deceptive beauty of institutions, existential angst, and hope. Here, we look at the theme of hope, of spiritual devotion to the divine nature of our world where, in spite of the darkness that slowly clouds our hearts from bitter experiences, there exists proof in the divinity of our universe in our ability to love.

A nice quick read with imposing questions.
I think that anyone who is interested to read this book should keep in mind that this is framed as a series of questions about faith in god, in man, and in human nature. Take a step back and see the book as a whole.
