I second the above poster's recommendations. Beware of the Constance Garrett translation of Brothers Karamazov or any Russian work for that matter. I have it on good authority that she "winged" some of her translations, thus not giving you adequatley the full beauty and purpose of the original works themselves.

When you're starving it makes no sense to turn down a baked potato because you wanted filet mignon. Or something.
If you spend long enough on this forum, you'll come away with all sorts of weird, untrue ideas of Orthodox Christianity.
I would suggest most persons in general avoid any question beginning with why.
