Rodion Romanovich, known as Raskolnikov, is a poor, hungry, student drop-out. His father had died and he was the centre of attention for his mother Pulkheria Raskolnikova and his sister Dunya. To them and many others, he was good-looking, very intelligent and with a great future. This had influenced Raskolnikov’s high perception of his own worth: “why do they love me so much, if I don’t deserve it?”

He preserves this certainty throughout the book (though possibly doubts are shown to emerge in th

FInally finished Crime and Punishment and I was impressed by how modern and full of psychology this novel was. Having been written in the time of the Civil War, and before the seeds of Communism were taking root, I think this was an interesting vision of Russia compared to Count Tolstoy whom I adore, and his vision of the world. Can't do another Russian novel this summer but The Brothers Karamazov might be next on the Russian heavy hitters.

I admit, I read this because it was a 'Classic'.

And I only give it 3 stars because...WHERE WAS THE EDITOR?

If this novel went to a publisher today, without the aura of 'classic' I guarantee it would have been cut by a third, and been better for it.

I didn't see the protagonist progress: he was self-absorbed, alienated with a severe case of adolescent angst before he committed the murder, and afterwards he carried on with a mixture of wanting to retire to his bed with not wanting to wash too much

No doubt, Dostoevsky is the best author ever! among all things that I've learnt from him, I should refer to that huge impression which reading Brothers Karamazov made upon me. after reading this novel, all aspects of my life changed! I became homesick and then, being so depressed, decided to kill myself, and I tried once, but... .
Ivan made me sick. but, after two years, I read the book once again. this time I really enjoyed it. I'm happy now, perhaps due to the reading of his other novels, espec

The Idiot, the Brothers Karamazov, Bobok the Gambler, a nasty story and the classic Crime and Punishment and other amazing tales. Dostoyevsky was the best of the best and a capable writer able to transmit the sense of Russian pathos, with a flourish.

Crime and Punishment s man murders his landlady. Skilfully developed so that one is allowed to see into the mind of the killer in order to understand, somewhat and even sympathize (to an extent) with his motivations. Many ranged of human depravity ar

Crime and Punishment by Dostoyevsky (Don't ever read the Constance Garrett translation) is a book that will thrill you, irritate you, and entertain you. The murder scene is the best one I have every read, and I love murder stories. I actually was hoping he could escape the murder room. Every time I read this book, I get sweaty palms as he waiting to leave the murder.

Rereading The Brothers Karamazov. I wasn't awake enough while I read the second half of the book. ;)

Thoroughly enjoyed his short stories.

Great to have on my kindle so that I always have something to read.

Timeless story. Reveals the good in each person. Bitterness, rivalry, insecurity, hatred, are feelings in the best of us. And there is goodness in the worst of us.

"I am a sick man... I am a spiteful man"

And with these first words, the novel itself is summed up!

I will probably never get around to this. However, I can think about reading it.

“Once upon a time there was a peasant woman and a very wicked woman she was. And she died and did not leave a single good deed behind. The devils caught her and plunged her into the lake of fire. So her guardian angel stood and wondered what good deed of hers he could remember to tell to God; 'She once pulled up an onion in her garden,' said he, 'and gave it to a beggar woman.' And God answered: 'You take that onion then, hold it out to her in the lake, and let her take hold and be pulled out. And if you can pull her out of the lake, let her come to Paradise, but if the onion breaks, then the woman must stay where she is.' The angel ran to the woman and held out the onion to her. 'Come,' said he, 'catch hold and I'll pull you out.' he began cautiously pulling her out. He had just pulled her right out, when the other sinners in the lake, seeing how she was being drawn out, began catching hold of her so as to be pulled out with her. But she was a very wicked woman and she began kicking them. 'I'm to be pulled out, not you. It's my onion, not yours.' As soon as she said that, the onion broke. And the woman fell into the lake and she is burning there to this day. So the angel wept and went away.” 1 likes
