Cloned From: 

You should checek out the Richard Pevear translations for Russian writers; they are much better in my opinion.

I have never really thought about the difference a translator would make to a novel, but I suppose each translator would impress a bit of there own opinions and ideas on the work. As it happens I already have two other novels by Dostoyevsky (both translated by David Magarshack) but if (when) I go looking for more Russian literature I will try to keep Mr Pevear in mind. Have you read many different translations of the same novels?
