Publisher's Summary

Exiled to four years in Siberia, but hailed by the end of his life as a saint, prophet, and genius, Fyodor Dostoevsky holds an exalted place among the best of the great Russian authors. One of Dostoevsky's five major novels, Devils follows the travails of a small provincial town beset by a band of modish radicals - and in so doing presents a devastating depiction of life and politics in late 19th-century Imperial Russia. Both a grotesque comedy and a shocking illustration of clashing ideologies, Dostoevsky's famed novel stands as an undeniable masterpiece.

Outstanding reading

This very long book was brought to life by the excellent reading. Beautifully read and one that I would never have finished reading if it were not read to me as an audio book. I finally have an understanding of the genius of Dostoyevsky.

Complex, intriguing classic

Probably the hardest to follow of his 4 post-Siberia novels - recommend a character list to refer to. Still, insightful and deep, fascinating group of characters but overall quite "gloomy" given the lack of any fully likeable heroes. Narration is OK - not as distinctive as Constantine Gregory.
