Great book, great narration, proper pronunciation
This is the 6th or 7th Dostoevsky audio book that I've listened to on Audible and Michael Kramer is the first narrator I have found that pronounces the names correctly. This is important because the names are repeated so often in Dostoevsky book... Nastasia PhiliPOVNA, Nastasia PhiliPOVNA, Nastasia PhiliPOVNA... No! Stop it! It is Nastasia PhiLIPovna!
Michael Kramer did a great job. I hope he narrates more Dostoevsky books.

I held my breath the second half of the book!
Perfect narrator! The only one I know who didn't butcher Russian names. And his French was equally impeccable.
As for the story itself... It's Dostoevsky... Enough said.
