Alex Really? This review makes you want to try again? Clearly I've failed.

Jennifer D Ha!! Nice! I had an impossible time writing a review for this book...and don't think I actually ever got around to it...should check that.

Alex You did. It was a weird one; you said it was brilliant, but I felt a lack of enthusiasm behind it. Although I may have been projecting.

I was exhausted afterwards. Having the review box pop-up as soon as you finish a book here stresses me out! :D

Also, I recalled this afternoon that this was the book I was going to try a drunken-El review style on and it didn't work. Probably my lack of enthusiasm reflects the disappointment in myself for not being able to review this well.

Alex Ha!

This was indeed a drunken - well, okay, slightly tipsy - review for me.

Newengland Tipsy reviews are really the only way to go when it comes to critiquing Dosty's work. The guy is night to Tolstoy's day, which is why I mostly sleep instead of working my way through his ouevre (French for "pages upon insane pages of controlled hysteria").

Tamsen I'm not ashamed to say I only gave this two stars! :) Great review.

Ka A missed opportunity . . .
I just came across the Cliff's Notes on Karamazov on my [NEW BOOKSHELVES]. Having listened to you moan your way through this, I only wish I had remembered it was there.
No, I didn't use it in college! I never used any Cliff's Notes! Must've been Abby's.

Jenny Matthews For my review I'm just going to link to this review.

Awesome review, Alex.


message 12: by Cathy (new)

Cathy Calamas Struggled struggled through this book and eventually gave up. May have to come back to it at a less hectic time of my life. I found it depressing and confusing .
