Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky have translated this exceptional novel by Fyodor M. Dostoevsky with grace and perfection. The central idea of the novel is to depict a completely beautiful human being. However, a good man becomes simply an idiot for the rest of the world. In this story, he is Prince Myshkin. Prince Myshkin is a Russian Holy Fool, a descendant of Don Quixote, and a type of Christ in an un-Christian world. Myshkin is slow minded but insightful. Myshkin meets Rogozhin in train and the two becomes good friend. Myshkin visits his relatives General Epanchin, his wife and their daughter Aglaya. He fascinates them with his innocence. Ganya, a schemer wants to marry Aglaya for her money. But Aglaya falls in love with Myshkin but another girl Natasya also loves him. Ganya plans Myshkin’s murder to take revenge. Myshkin is safe and Aglaya sacrifices her love for Natasya. The communication between all the characters is interesting. Myshkin and Natasya are just similar. I love all the characters but Prince Myshkin is the back of the novel. This story has everything love triangle, romance, sacrifice and revenge. All the characters are beautifully developed and fascinates the reader. Dostoevsky has the ability to set some of the kindest, most good-hearted characters alongside some of the most devious and down-right evil. You will be completely absorbed in the story as you turn the pages. This book is awesome.
