¡La mejor obra de Dostoievski! Narra la historia de una familia rusa, los Karamazov formada por el padre (Fedor) y sus tres hijos (Dmitri, Ivan y Aliocha). Si bien la obra comienza narrando lo que va a ocurrir -que es el asesinato del padre- llevado a cabo supuestamente por uno de los tres hermanos, no se trata de una novela policial ni mucho menos. Es solo la excusa para narrar la triste y desgarradora historia de una familia, las miserias de un padre egoísta que solo le importa su propia vida, carente de moral, y los dilemas psicológicos y existenciales de sus tres hijos, que no son otros que los "Hermanos Karamazov". Es una novela que indaga sobre los extraños caminos del bien y del mal, la miseria y la grandeza del hombre. La novela ahonda profundamente en la psicología de cada uno de los personajes como pocas obras lo han hecho, lo que la convierte en una novela perfecta y deslumbrante, colmada de reflexión. En esta historia se entremezclan una multiplicidad de sentimientos que existen en todos los seres humanos: los celos y la envidia entre los hermanos, el odio y rencor hacia su padre que los lleva al extremo de desear su muerte ,la venganza, el arrepentimiento, la culpa, la mentira, el remordimiento. La personalidad de cada uno de los hermanos está finamente delineada, te permite ver con detalle las grandes diferencias que existen entre ellos en relación a su forma de ser y la visión que cada uno tiene de la vida: Aliocha, aprendiz en un monasterio, es el más equilibrado, conciliador y puro; Dmitri es el más parecido a su propio padre, ya que vive buscando el placer y su propia satisfacción sin importarle el precio (y es el principal sospechoso en la muerte de su padre) e Ivan, el más complejo de los tres hermanos, que guarda también un gran odio por su padre pero no lo expresa tan abiertamente como Dmitri. Al leerla se encuentra un profundo enfoque psicológico de los sentimientos humanos.

About the author (2015)

One of the most powerful and significant authors in all modern fiction, Fyodor Dostoevsky was the son of a harsh and domineering army surgeon who was murdered by his own serfs (slaves), an event that was extremely important in shaping Dostoevsky's view of social and economic issues. He studied to be an engineer and began work as a draftsman. However, his first novel, Poor Folk (1846), was so well received that he abandoned engineering for writing. In 1849, Dostoevsky was arrested for being a part of a revolutionary group that owned an illegal printing press. He was sentenced to be executed, but the sentence was changed at the last minute, and he was sent to a prison camp in Siberia instead. By the time he was released in 1854, he had become a devout believer in both Christianity and Russia - although not in its ruler, the Czar. During the 1860's, Dostoevsky's personal life was in constant turmoil as the result of financial problems, a gambling addiction, and the deaths of his wife and brother. His second marriage in 1887 provided him with a stable home life and personal contentment, and during the years that followed he produced his great novels: Crime and Punishment (1886), the story of Rodya Raskolnikov, who kills two old women in the belief that he is beyond the bounds of good and evil; The Idiots (1868), the story of an epileptic who tragically affects the lives of those around him; The Possessed (1872), the story of the effect of revolutionary thought on the members of one Russian community; A Raw Youth (1875), which focuses on the disintegration and decay of family relationships and life; and The Brothers Karamazov (1880), which centers on the murder of Fyodor Karamazov and the effect the murder has on each of his four sons. These works have placed Dostoevsky in the front rank of the world's great novelists. Dostoevsky was an innovator, bringing new depth and meaning to the psychological novel and combining realism and philosophical speculation in his complex studies of the human condition.
