The Possessed

by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

This very prophetic novel, of clashing ideals, will grip your thoughts till the last page, riveting as it is moving, it will carry you to unprecedented heights beyond words.
It is perhaps one of the best books I have ever read, IF NOT THE BEST.
A must for all lovers of literature and a true testament of Dostoevsky's knack, not merely to entertain but provoke one's consciousness to plunge into a whirlpool of ideas.
I highly recommend the translation made by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky, re-titled "DEMONS". It includes the censored chapter that further outlines the dark and complex character of Nikolai Vsevolodovich Stavrogin.

Crime and Punishment

by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

This is the pinnacle of Dostoevsky's genius. It is imbued with philosophy that speaks of Universal Truth. A must read for those who are in pursuit of answers to some essential questions about life and its essence.
