did not like it
Read in January, 2010

A book that seems like it is going somewhere good for the first half, and then gets bogged down in Russian philosophical musings. Just when you think its out of the depressing musings and going to get on with where it was headed it has an anti-climatic resolution which should be the end. Instead of ending the book at the natural place it goes on to repeat most of the plot in a very boring court room drama which takes up at least a forth of the book. This is what happens when publishers pay authors by the page. I enjoyed Crime and Punishment when I read it years ago. I did not enjoy The Brothers Karamazov. (This was the final book for my Great Books Philosophy class.)
