Review quote

"A fine new translation that retains the flavor and vigor of the original. The ghost of Dostoevsky must be laughing with pleasure: at least we have his linguistic humor, solecisms and all. In short, a fine new edition."--Clifford Hardie, Wilmington College"Myers translation is much more readable than the Garnett one."--Sr. Anna M.
