What the community says about Notes From Underground
- "Fragmented story of a man's mental illness and self torture. He wants things he never can allow to happen, sabotages all his possibilities and makes far flung attempts to justify it as possibly being a better way to live. I'm not sure I'd want to read it but some might. Seems rather nightmarish."
- "Notes From Underground for it being short is a long read. Written by one of Russia best selling authors Fyodor Dostoyevky. A men leaves to be alone but seems to hate the world for being alone. The book is split up over a few events and times in his life. Many notes and pages of society. "
- "This is one of the most riveting and complex novels I have ever read as is all of all of Jordon Peterson's work. This book goes so deep into the character, Dostoevsky's, thoughts. It is so well written and interesting that I could not stop reading it. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is interested in a great novel."
- "Dostoyevsky shares insights into irrational behaviors and the need for freedom via a spiteful character. Reading this text left me feeling a bit agitated, though less so than with "Crime and Punishment." I found the translation to be readable and clear. Easily readable on Kindle."
- " Without any doubt Dostoevsky is one of the most talented writers of universal literature, writing some of the most famous works such as "Karamazov Brothers", "Crime and Punishment" and, of course, "Notes from Underground". Being the first realistic novel, "Notes from Underground" is one of the most widely read novels, focusing on the psychology of life."
- "Notes From Underground is some of the best literature about philosophy. The story is fascinating and involves the narrator living underground. I found myself spellbound and imagining myself in their shoes. I've recommended it to several others since reading it and will keep it in my library."
- "In my quest to read the classics I picked this book by Dostoyevsky. Notes from Underground is a dark refection of society during Dostoyevsky's time. Dostoyevsky has a brilliant mind and he is a very gifted author. I would definitely recommend this book is you are bored and have nothing else to read. "
