Description-
  • One of the greatest works of fiction ever written, Crime and Punishment is an intense psychological study, a terrifying murder mystery, and a fascinating detective thriller instilled with philosophical, religious, and social commentary.

    Dostoevsky studies the psychological impact upon a desperate and impoverished student when he murders a despicable pawnbroker, transgressing moral law to ultimately "benefit humanity."

    This new narration of Crime and Punishment takes the listener on a journey into the darkest recesses of the criminal and depraved mind and exposes the soul of a man possessed by both good and evil who cannot escape his own conscience.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Anthony Heald shows remarkable versatility in this production of Dostoevsky's 1866 classic. CRIME AND PUNISHMENT is a story in which little actually happens. The murders that constitute the titular crime occur early, and there is no mystery about who is responsible. The novel is primarily one of psychological, philosophical, and ethical questions pondered through the dialogue of its intriguing characters. Heald not only ascribes a unique voice to each of the cast, but he delivers the dialogue as a stage actor would, with exaggerated emotion and even with laughter, coughing, stammering, and other adornments indicated in the text. Although parts of this long recording inevitably drag, Heald's pacing and rich characterizations keep the story moving. D.B. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
  • Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature Dostoevsky's first masterpiece….The narrative's feverish, compelling tone follows the twists and turns of Raskolnikov's emotions and elaborates his struggle with his conscience….[A] moving depiction of the recovery of a man's diseased spirit.
