The Idiot by Fyodor Dostoyevsky Book Summary

Prince Myshkin returns to Russia from an asylum in Switzerland. As he becomes embroiled in the frantic amatory and financial intrigues which centre around a cast of brilliantly realised characters and which ultimately lead to tragedy, he emerges as a unique combination of the Christian ideal of perfection and Dostoevsky's own views, afflictions and manners.

Absolute nonsense. As a lover and appreciator of the classics, I had always meant to read some Dostoyevsy. My mother had a copy of this and recommended it to me. In short, dear friends, if you're lucky enough to read this before wasting months dragging yourselves through it, just don't do it. To sum it up without giving anything of the plot away, it is just much ado about nothing. No meaningful points or lessons - just much ado about nothing. Can't believe I wasted so much time ill never get back. Ugh!

Alright. I didn't realize till the end that there were some misplaced chapters inserted at the end.

The idiot. 3rd time reading it. Doestoevsky has inhabited my soul for many years and makes me see life very deeply.

Chapters out of order!. The chapters in this book are out of order! Kind of makes it hard to read.

Idiot. No wonder it's called the idiot. The chapters are mixed up.

Genius. Sick, convoluted and fantastic.

The Idiot. Of course it is a great book, as are all written by famous 19th century Russian novelists. Just obscure and rambling enough to rate as literature rather than pulp fiction, but with an equally lurid and engaging story line. Several themes are propounded upon in convenient soliloquies: Life, Death, Religion, Politics, etc. These are interesting for their reflection of the place and time, Russia in the 19th century. So foreign to a modern American mindset! This particular e-edition contains about 50 errors and is tricky to decipher where these occur.

The Idiot. Two cunning women terrorize a virtue signaling hapless prince.

The Idiot. See above.

Edit. Needs another edit. But it got 4 stars because it’s a good book

Interesting read. The story is a little hard to follow as the author uses various names for the same character, but overall it's well written. Detailed, enticing, and definitely a tale of the times.

A tragic tale. Waste. So much promise fretted away, the author stands at the abyss and describes a tale that leaves the reader asking why.

Понравилось. Спасибо большое Федору Михаиловичу Достоевскому!

A great book . Extraordinarily told and drawn.. I loved this book . I couldn't put it down.

Great. Idiot is not just a book it’s beyond it

Need to fix the chapters. There seem to be gaps or mixed up chapters in this one. Frustrating.

Great book. Loved this book, it changed my mind about Dostoyevsky whom I considered a bit too heavy. This is easy to read and keeps you interested the whole time. Left me thinking a lot about human nature and accountability. The edition/translation itself is not great, misspellings and grammatical errors are found. But it doesn't take from the story.

Gloomy. The diction is beautiful, the characters developed and narrative original. However the vast tangents F.D. takes (characteristically) combined with the decidedly doomed tone foreshadows a depressing and even anticlimactic ending. Language and intricacy aside, I could not recommend this to anyone unless they desire to feel pity.

The Idiot. Laborious

The Idiot reviewed. Wow!! What a long book!! Longest I've read to date. The writings for me, I admit, were sometimes hard to understand in some places, however I really enjoyed the book. There was a lot of information, and people who were interesting. I did not expect the ending. I would recommend this book to anyone who can think while reading, and has the knowledge to comprehend and keep up with the story. I would read again.

Incomplete masterpiece. I have always loved this brilliant book, but I was disappointed that the version that I downloaded for my new iPad had chapters 13-15 totally absent. I suggest that you withdraw this version pending its revision.

Ended abruptly. I agree with other reviews, I read 2844 (small) pages only to find the book apparently ends mid sentence, it can't be right! Very frustrating.

Missing chapters.. This should be removed from the store. Missing chapters

The Idiot. Fantastic classic, mildly let down by the poor transliteration in the free e-book copy.

...heart-stopping.... Few writers can fill you with such feelings of hope one minute, and agony the next.

Classically boring. I'm trying to get through some world renowned classics. I should have loved this more. However, the dialogue, which I'm sure, was quite charming during the era and served as witty conversation, just sounded absurd to me. The Prince came off cartoonish at best. Just not for me.
