Notes from the Underground

4 ratings, 2 reviews

Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s short masterpiece about a ranting, slightly mad civil servant. The stylistic inventiveness, and the insights into the absurdities and weakness of humans seem so fresh and incisive today that if published now (a century and a half later) Notes would be considered an avant-garde post-modernist triumph. In some ways this is a heavy text, laden with conversational philosophizing; but the vividness of the narrator make it a wonderful read, and funny.

This is an amazing story of Dostoyevsky. However, this reading of it is not good at all. The intonations of the reader are nearly always out of harmony with the words themselves. I recommend a different recording.
