Read in April, 2012

What I really loved was that Dostoyevsky's writing style reminded me a lot of Tolstoy. I'd tried Notes from the Underground back in college and remember not getting into it at all, but I don't know if that's because I wasn't ready for it or if this book was really more my style. The same thing goes for towards the end of this book. I'm not sure if the lag and lack of interest I had for it came from a lag in the story, or if when I was reading it I around that time I was really overworking myself so was too tired to really be able to get engaged. Which ever it was, for the most part it really brought back how much I admired in Tolstoy catching the details of those subtle character nuances. Either way, I'll still move along to try out more of his books now that I've actually read one all the way through and dug it.
