Crime and Punishment

Postby Dixie » Tue Sep 21, 2010 7:27 pm

Has anyone read Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment? I started it a couple days ago. I'm in chapter V and the truth is I'm not enjoying it a lot, actually. I was wondering if anyone around here has read it and can share their opinions about the book. Should I keep reading? I'm not very impressed... it's a classic so I wouldn't want to give it up yet.

Thanks {-;

Yes, I read that in school times. He is included in the programme of Literature in Russia and Post-Soviet republics. Most probably, translated version isn't so attractive for foreign readers. :-) ..The novel, basically, reveals the social and psychological causes of crime, moral contradictions and consequences.

At those times, yes I did. I also liked his novel "The House of the Dead" which I read 3 y.ago.

Oh, this one really does seem interesting. I might read it when I'm done with Crime and Punishment (if I don't end up fed up with Dostoyevsky :roll: :mrgreen: ). Thanks, Xkalibur.

I had this book in school programme so I read it. It is not easy to read but I think it is worth to read it till the end if you already started ;) I advise you to read some explanations about the sense of this book after you will finish reading to understand it better.
