Publisher's Summary

Fyodor Dostoevsky’s novella, White Nights, was originally published in 1848. The tender narrative is an appealing blend of realism and romanticism. A daydreamer, the hero is a lonely young man in Saint Petersburg who lives in a fantasy world. After a chance encounter, he falls in love with a young woman, Nastenka, whom he meets in the same place over four nights. Sharing a sense of alienation, they exchange information on their respective backgrounds and grow fond of one another in a short time. Touching on themes of isolation, unhappiness, chance, and chivalry, White Nights has an unexpected outcome.

Probably a great story

The reader in the version is awful. It’s like he’s learning to read and getting paid to do it!

I couldn’t even listen to the story (although being a Dostoyevsky I assume it’s great). The reader is that bad. Save your money/credit.
