A great book; even though it's rather hefty, it's a genuine page-turner, and I loved every moment of it. I'm now reading a collection of short stories by Tolstoy.
You have no frigging idea how much I want to read Dostoevsky's books, but I made a pledge to read every single book I own before I go for anything else. But ****, do I need to read The Idiot
or Crime and Punishment
. I crave them. I'm impulsive like that: one day I'll want to read The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay
, I'll go to the store, pick it up, go home, read it, put it on the shelf and think about it. Now I crave Crime and Punishment
the same way.
Sadly, people kept giving me books for a few years - books were suddenly available and for cheap
, and people knew I liked them - so now I have a stack of something like 140 novels
I haven't read yet.
I'll need 3 years to tackle all these.
