I'm skipping Demons so I can read this. What am I in for, is it a slow burn or is it good right away?

but demons is good, anon

That's what I hear but I'm a slow reader and I've been meaning to read the brothers karamazov for years

Stop fucking asking this, you dumb shits.
Worse than the “what did I think of it?” Pat meme phrase

It's slow, but very cozy. It's also like C&P, The Idiot, and Demons, rolled into one.

The Rebellion and Grand Inquisitor chapters are crazy intense, though.

Not him but which translation should I check out? I like the Penguin cover

>>20444329
Probably by richard and larissa. I heard they’re the best translation for TBK. So I’m also guessing for Demons and other works

>> No.20444492

This or Avsey or McDuff

Just read it, you idiot.

This. It is tied with brothers karamazov as my favorite dosto.

Demons is better and it’s obviously a slow burn as all 19th Century works are by today’s standards but it’s a satisfying and deep work

>> No.20445356

>>20443441
It is fantastic all the way through

>> No.20445432

>>20443441
Read Demons first.
