really liked it

This is a good, semi-autobiographical story by Dosteovsky. It may not be as deeply philosopical as his other works, but it is an easy read and entertaining. It is about addiction, in particular, regarding gambling. Interestingly, Dostoevsky finished this book (like many others) on a deadline in order to recieve money which he could use to payoff gambling debts.

Oh, the irony!
