Richard I liked Crime and Punishment much, much more than The Brothers Karamazov. I'd recommend it.

If you liked the romantic portions of War & Peace, you should very much enjoy Anna Karenina; if the war chapters were more intriguing, A.K. might be a bit of a letdown.

But if you want more depression, you could always pick up some Chekov... just in case spring is too joyous, you know.

Meen Thanks, Richard! You know, I actually like BOTH about W&P. I liked that it had it ALL.

:)

I definitely want to avoid Fyodor for a bit, so no C&P anytime soon. I DO like depressing, however, so maybe I'll try Chekov next. Good suggestion!

William I known what you mean about the court scene at the end of the book, it drags!! I mean c'mon, we have read like 900 hundred pages so far, end it already fydor. You say it is preachy, but you have got to admit that Ivan laid out his case pretty well to Alyosha. The atheist view point is well represented. Anyway, take care.

Meen Yeah, it's well-represented, and then ultimately dismissed. THAT annoyed me!
