Publisher's Summary

One of the most fascinating psychological struggles of the modern world revolves around the competing tension between existential philosophy and metaphysical spirituality. "The Dream of a Ridiculous Man" beautifully encapsulates the extremes of both points of view and provides the listener a front row seat to a battle that still rages today.

Worth reading, I mean it's Dostoyevski

A short yet captivating story. I think the narrator was sold. Overall, money well spent.

Disappointing narration of a great story

A wonderful story, but the narration grates. However, it's still worth a listen because: Dostoyevsky

Awesome , parable and twilight zone colide

Having never read Fyodor Dostoyevsky, I had no idea what a moving experience he would paint. So very anxious am I to share this amazing read with family and friends. Savor this anyone that gets a chance.

And his nothing but ridiculous

This book will tell the value of living in a society full of prejudgment and prejudice. The truth make him ridiculous and ridiculous make him the truth.
