In this early work from Fyodor Dostoevsky, the role and domain of the anti-hero is explored and exposed.  In his self-appointed removal from society, the narrator attempts to dissect the complicated rules, both spoken and unspoken, of human interactions as well as the driving force and reason behind individual morality and universal truths.  He descends into a chaos of contradictions as he attempts to prove his own superiority and understanding of morality while simultaneously revealing his intense self-loathing and hatred for society as a whole.  While describing this distaste for the society he has removed himself from, it is also clear that he obsesses over and longs to rejoin this culture he has ruined for himself.  This work is a detailed and intellectual exploration of free will vs. determinism, moral ambiguity, existentialism, and a complicated but honest assessment of one’s own soul.  To overcome truth and ascend humanity, Dostoevsky’s narrator must face an attempt to rationalize the endless contradictions of life, self, and society. This series, published by ONE audiobooks, seeks to produce Classic titles read by well known and loved audiobook narrators.  ONE takes great care to cast these titles with readers who will provide an unmatched listening experience for these important works. Simon Bubb brings his passion to every performance and is considered to be one of the top audiobook narrators in the industry.

Author Bio: Fyodor Dostoevsky

Author Bio: Fyodor Dostoevsky

Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky (1821–1881) was a Russian novelist, journalist, and short-story writer whose psychological penetration into the darkest recesses of the human heart had a profound and universal influence on the twentieth-century novel. He was born in Moscow, the son of a surgeon. Leaving the study of engineering for literature, he published Poor Folk in 1846. As a member of revolutionary circles in St. Petersburg, he was condemned to death in 1849. A last-minute reprieve sent him to Siberia for hard labor. Returning to St. Petersburg in 1859, he worked as a journalist and completed his masterpiece, Crime and Punishment, as well as other works, including The Idiot and The Brothers Karamazov.
