I finished reading the third volume 3 of the Japanese translated version of “The Brothers Karamazov”
It has 5 volumes in all. Right now, I’m in the middle of the heavy story. I realized my mistake when I thought I will easily finish reading this long story. Actually, I enjoyed reading it until the second volume. However, the third one is about the story of crazy love, and I find it difficult to feel sympathy for the protagonist.
One of the main characters, Dimitri(Mitya), the eldest son of Fyodor Karamazov, is infatuated with Agrafena (Grushenka). However, Fyodor is also in with love her. Grushenka is a young charming lady who had just suffered heartache. She was jilted by a Polish officer 5 years earlier, but she is still in love with him. The father and son were jealous of each other, in spite of Grushenka not feeling any love for both Karamazovs.
In addition, Mitya felt that Fyodor had ②impinged on the inheritance he was about to get. He has an explosive temper, to the point where he sometimes cries out in public of his desire to kill his father. Many people predicted the predicament of the Karamazov family was ③an accident waiting to happen.
Just as expected, somebody killed Fyodor, and his fortune was stolen. Everybody thought Mitya would be ①implicated in the scandal of killing his father. I don’t want to spoil it if you haven’t read the story yet. As a matter of fact, I was upset when I knew who is the murderer. I didn’t want to, but when I read another related book, it pointed out the murderer. That really disappointed me.
Anyway, the Russian author Dostoyevsky drawing the absurdity of human behavior impressively realistic. Reading this story is absolutely worth it. I will never stop until I’ve read the epilogue, even if I have to spend a lot of time.
