The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
The murder of brutal landowner Fyodor Karamazov changes, the lives of his sons irrevocably: Mitya, the sensualist, whose bitter rivalry with his father immediately places him under suspicion for patricide; Ivan the intellectual, whose mental tortures drive him to breakdown; the spiritual Alyosha, who tries to heal the family's rifts; and the shadowy figures of their bastard half-brother Smerdyakov. As the ensuing investigation and trial reveal the true identity of the murderer, Dostoyevsky's dark masterwork evokes a world where the lines between innocence and corruption, good and evil blur, and everyone's faith in humanity is tested.
