Publisher's Summary

A century after it first appeared, Crime and Punishment remains one of the most gripping psychological thrillers. A poverty-stricken young man, seeing his family making sacrifices for him, is faced with an opportunity to solve his financial problems with one simple but horrifying act: the murder of a pawnbroker. She is, he feels, just a parasite on society. But does the end justify the means? Rodion Romanovitch Raskolnikov makes his decision and then has to live with it. Dostoyevsky, in masterly fashion, contrasts the comedy and tragedy of life in St. Petersburg with the anguish and turmoil of Raskolnikov's inner life.

Last two words are missing which is a nuisance..

Engaging story with so much value to general life and different perspectives. It was an excellent choice of narrator, who carried and delivered it impeccably. The last two words missing off the entire book however took the shine off at the last possible moment. The missing words are 'has ended'. Please amend this Audible because it is not obvious how to contact you.
