More like 3.5 stars. I really liked some aspects about this book but there were a couple things that made it difficult to love. I felt everything to be a bit chaotic. The dialogue is all over the place...everyone going off on tangents of some sort and at a very fast pace. Although the ranting was often the source of the developing plot and demonstrated different personalities, it did not always provide me with the most pleasant of reading experiences.

Overall, I did like and I am glad I finally read it. I am curious to read The Brothers Karamazov to see if this is, in fact, Dostoevsky's style of writing or if the things that bothered me were more a factor of this particular story.
