it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction, favorites
Read in January, 1984

Probably the most important novel I've ever read. It's impact on my life was tremendous. I'd like to read it again, due to the new translation(s).

Quotes Steve Liked

Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“He wasn't thinking about anything. There was just the odd random thought or scrap of thought, or the odd image without rhyme or reason: faces seen by him back in his childhood or people he'd seen only once and would never have recalled again; the bell tower of V______ Church; a billiard table in a tavern and some officer standing next to it; the smell of cigars in some basement tobacco shop; a drinking den; a back staircase, pitch dark, soaked in slops and spattered with eggshells; and from somewhere or other the ringing of Sunday bells . . .”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment
