Read in January, 1977 , read count: twice

I remember that after reading this, Dostoevsky’s final book, and the last book I read by him, that it became my all-time favourite. If I gave 5 stars to Crime and Punishment, then I would have given 6 to The Brothers Karamazov. I must have focused on plot the first time I read it, but knew, even at the time, that there was so much more to it that I had to read it again. I did. But all I remember is that if Crime and Punishment made me think, The Brothers Karamazov made me really think.

I can say, if you’ve never read Dostoevsky, and plan only to read one of his books, I would recommend you read The Brothers Karamazov – and I have a feeling I am going to have to read it for a third time!
