The Brothers Karamasov is a novel about three brothers and their father, about children, animals and a murder - and about belief in a world in which questions of faith are simultaneously foreign and doubted. A thundering thousand page novel about the humor, and the unattainable in life. It is a novel almost as challenging as life itself. All the characters are drawn into situations and relationships that they can’t even handle themselves. They slowly break free and become that what they are: complicated, needy and surprised.
