For those of you who have read lots of Dostoevsky...which was your favorite?
Have read his big 2 (BK and C&P)

Want to read the rest of his stuff because those were so good

Should I read Notes from Underground next?

It's a solid, quick read.

BK is my favorite book of all time not named Huck Finn. So there's that.

Crime and Punishment is my favorite work of his. I need to go back and reread The Brothers Karamazov, though.

Read that in English lit at UNO or Nicholls. We read The Double and Notes from the Underground. Maybe another I can’t remember. I enjoyed both.

Only one I've read of Dostoevsky is The Idiot. It's written in two parts, part one and part two. Really enjoyed part one, couldnt put it down. When i got to part two my interest faded. Maybe I'll pick it up again soon.
I recommend it.

Basic summary main character Myshkin is a Christ like figure in the world at that time. He is the embodiment of good, but only human not divine.

Huck, Aloyosha, and Binx are my three favorite characters.

Having read lots of his stuff both in Russian ( ) and translated, he really is the best of the Russian writers.

Don't get me wrong - Solzhenitsyn's work is extraordinarily compelling, but Dostoevsky could make anything compelling, a recipe or a description of a rock.

And, I'm still partial to Crime and Punishment.

Notes from Underground next


Probably. But, there is no wrong answer for his published works.

I just finished Notes from Underground and I didn't really like it. The first part had some interesting philosophical insights, but this was an odd book that I couldn't get immersed in.

Maybe Demons or The Idiot next, if you still want to go down this road.
