CRIME AND PUNISHMENT

by | Read by Anthony Heald

Classics • 20.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1859

Anthony Heald shows remarkable versatility in this production of Dostoevsky’s 1866 classic. CRIME AND PUNISHMENT is a story in which little actually happens. The murders that constitute the titular crime occur early, and there is no mystery about who is responsible. The novel is primarily one of psychological, philosophical, and ethical questions pondered through the dialogue of its intriguing characters. Heald not only ascribes a unique voice to each of the cast, but he delivers the dialogue as a stage actor would, with exaggerated emotion and even with laughter, coughing, stammering, and other adornments indicated in the text. Although parts of this long recording inevitably drag, Heald’s pacing and rich characterizations keep the story moving.
