Fyodor Dostoyevsky (1821–1881) was a Russian novelist, short story writer, essayist, journalist and philosopher. His literary works explore human psychology in the troubled political, social, and spiritual atmosphere of 19th-century Russia. Many of his works contain a strong emphasis on Christianity, and its message of absolute love, forgiveness and charity, explored within the realm of the individual, confronted with all of life's hardships and beauty. His major works include Crime and Punishment, The Idiot, Demons and The Brothers Karamazov. Many literary critics rate him as one of the greatest and most prominent psychologists in world literature. His novella Notes from Underground is considered to be one of the first works of existentialist literature.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is an excellent collection of the works of the great Russian novelist and writer Fyodor Dostoyevsky. It has all of his works, plus several excellent introductory essays, and it's all very nicely formatted for the Kindle and with very user friendly tables of contents so the reader can go from one work to another easily.
In fact, after reviewing the contents of this collection carefully, I've come to the conclusion that this is an exemplary collection of Dostoyevsky's works, far more carefully put together than the vast majority of other similar volumes typically found for the Kindle.
These are all works that are available in the public domain and from resources such as Project Gutenberg, but there is certainly enough value in what has been done to collect them together here and format them properly for the Kindle that a purchase price of just 99 cents is not only justified, it is a terrific bargain.
In going through the contents of this volume, I...
Buying "The Complete Works of Fyodor Dostoyevsky" was my first excursion into his works. I had heard so much about him as I was growing up that I thought it would be wonderful to take the time to get to know him now. As many have stated, other than "Crime & Punishment", the editing is atrocious and made reading difficult. (I actually thought "send this to me so I can clean it up". I'm nowhere near perfect, but not this bad. It was driving me crazy.) I do, however, greatly appreciate that someone has made the effort to do so. Moving along into the actual writings, it is hard to criticize an author that others consider a "master" and "classic", and though the plots and characters themselves were good, I find his repetitious and meandering style boring. Obviously, that's just me! :)
The works are by an excellent author, but I had to knock off a couple of stars for the lack of editing of this collection. Blatant grammatical errors abound, which feels disrespectable to the integrity of Dostoyevsky.
