The Idiot

The Idiot

in EPUB format, also available for Kindle or in PDF

Returning to Russia from a sanitarium in Switzerland, the Christ-like epileptic Prince Myshkin finds himself enmeshed in a tangle of love, torn between two women—the notorious kept woman Nastasya and the pure Aglaia—both involved, in turn, with the corrupt, money-hungry Ganya. In the end, Myshkin’s honesty, goodness, and integrity are shown to be unequal to the moral emptiness of those around him.

Project Gutenverg updated their version and this one was based on the previous version.
I've updated the text and added dropcaps too.

There's a whole chapter missing in this copy of the book. Part 1 chapter 12 is missing. There are also numerous typos. These mistakes aren't present in the Gutenberg edition of the book.
