The book had a lot more action than I expected, an amazing story line, great characters, and some of the best writing I've read.
Convinced that he is above the law, Raskolnikov murders an old pawnbroker with the thought that many good deeds can be justified by one bad one.
What we get with Dostoyevsky is dramatic tension, detailed and believable human characters, and brilliant insight into human nature.
I wanted to hear it because of the author, but, tho I listed to all of it, it was punishing!
I have to say I was disappointed.
I never read this classic. As most know who have read this book, it is not a quick read or a light one. However, I am glad I finally read it.Published 3 days ago by Chris
