Summary

Il y a le père, Fiodor Pavlovich, riche, malhonnête et débauché, et ses trois fils légitimes : Mitia, impulsif, orgueilleux, sauvage ; Yvan, intellectuel, raffiné, intransigeant ; Aliocha, sincère, pieux, naïf. Et puis il y a le fils illégitime, Smerdiakov, libertin cynique vivant en serviteur chez son père. L'un d'eux sera parricide.

Roman complet et flamboyant, Les Frères Karamazov rassemble une intrigue policière, plusieurs histoires d'amour, des exposés théologiques et métaphysiques éblouissants et des personnages inoubliables déchirés par leurs conflits intérieurs. Sans doute le chef-d’œuvre de Dostoïevski.

Beautifully read masterpiece

The Brothers Karamazov is obviously one of the masterpieces of world literature. (Well, I know that Nabokov and the prominent Dutch scholar of Russian literature Karel van het Reve found Dostoyevsky overrated, but whatever weaknesses he has, if any, the vividness, the storyline lurching ever onwards, the psychological and philosophical depth - all make him irresistible to me).
The work is read with real panache, and Vincent Violette enunciates extremely clearly, ideal for me, as I often find spoken French hard to follow.
I have been working at my French on and off over a period of more than forty years, and have recently picked it up again in anticipation of a forthcoming stay in France. I came across this French version of The Brothers Karamazov by accident, and it immediately struck me how much easier I found it to make out the spoken words than with the other French audiobooks I've been trying to listen to (often not very well recorded technically, either).
That the reading is also lively, expressive and varied makes it even less of an effort to follow; the story just draws one along.
I look forward to listening to Vincent Violette's reading of the French version of Crime and Punishment, which should be just as good.
This has been one of the most rewarding audiobooks I've ever listened to in any language.
Hats off to Vincent Violette, and old Fyodor D!

Superbe narration!

Je dois lever mon chapeau au narrateur! Quel talent!

Quant à l'histoire, je peux difficilement commenter sur ce classique de la littérature russe. J'aurais pu me passer de quelques longueurs dans le récit. J'ai bien aimé la biographie du starets mais un peu moins la conversation d'Ivan avec Satan.
