I have searched high and low on the Internet for a list of pronunciations for the following list, but have not been successful. Now I need your kind help.

I need to learn the pronunciations of each character (if at all possible) in Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky’s The Brother’s Karamazov.

Let’s start with the authors name and title of novel. Please, if you could, post pronunciation keys for the following names:

Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky

You need to learn? What, is there a test?

Is this a joke?

I would pronounce "MARYA KONDRATYEVNA" as "MARYA KONDRATYEVNA".

Etc. etc.
