Fyodor Dostoevsky: You can’t call yourself a Russian literature aficionado — or even tepid fan — if you haven’t read Crime and Punishment, considered to be one of the greatest works of literature ever written. Dostoevsky wrote numerous masterpieces, but this novel is usually cited as his best. It’s a dark, heavy novel that incites grave introspection, but its psychological journey is both intellectual and base.
A brilliant book!...Continua
It's a heavy and dark novel about a troubled mind. Even though the society depicted in this book is ancient and outdated, the dedication of main female characters in this book is still touched.
It's a classic, but I thought this book was depressing and implausible.
I have personally found this work realy boring.
But that's just my personal opinion. Dostoyevsky is greatwriter, and the fact that I do not like him, talks about the fact that my tastes are different or that I'm still "immature" put up with such a writer (work). Although Dostoevsky is considered one of the representative of high realism, I have not experienced him as such in this work. The romantic fatalism is too much present in this work to be defined realistic
Read on a train in the bleak winter with snow outside, which I felt suited the mood of the book perfectly! Very well written, very interesting. Enjoyed it.
