The Brothers Karamozov
- This is a story of patricide and the four sons (one illegitimate) who each had a motive to kill the cruel father. Set in nineteenth-century Russia, this is a compelling, complex, and brilliant work by a great novelist. The brothers are Dmitry, Ivan, Alyosha, and Smerdyakov, and each character represents a different approach to the world. A gripping courtroom drama ends the story.
