About the book

image4.3/5.0

“Crime and Punishment” is an 1866 novel by Russian author Fyodor Dostoevsky. The narrative concerns the inner anguish of Rodion Raskolnikov, a poor ex-student in Saint Petersburg who conceives a murderous plan to steal from a notorious pawnbroker. However, after the deed is done he deteriorates into a feverish state and begins to fret obsessively. In his delirium, Rodion wanders the streets of the city unknowingly drawing attention to himself and his connection to the crime. A masterpiece that places you into the confused mind of a misguided murderer, Dostoevsky's “Crime and Punishment” is a classic of Russian literature not to be missed by any lover of fiction. Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky (1821 – 1881) was a Russian novelist, essayist, short story writer, journalist, and philosopher. His literature examines human psychology during the turbulent social, spiritual and political atmosphere of 19th-century Russia, and he is considered one of the greatest psychologists in world literature. A prolific writer, Dostoevsky produced 11 novels, three novellas, 17 short stories and numerous other works. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.

Evaluating this book you will not be able to exaggerate with superlatives. It really is,in my opinion, one of the finest pieces of literature ever written. It deals with the question of “guilt.” In short, the main charactor murders a pawnbroker. Then steals from her. He excuses the crime to himself, because he finds the pawnbroker less worthy of the financial wealth than himself. And he is disparately poor. The book deals with Raskolnikovs growing guilt. The plot is interesting and the book is an exciting read. One reason the book is so extrodinary is that the language is very very well constructed. It’s simply a pleasure to read. You find yourself reading pages over, simply are for the enjoyment of the construction of the sentences. It should be read and it is not as heavy as some Russian literature. If you have not read Dostojevskij this book is a good starting point I score maximum points. It doesn’t become better

I was so proud I finished this book completely - it was definitely worth it. It’s one of those novels that touches on everything - from philosophy to religion to morality etc etc. also a very gravitating story, just something you could get lost in and I did occasionally laugh out loud. Dostoevsky is brilliant.

Boring in the best way possible. I love Dostoyevsky and especially being inside the minds of his characters. It feels like you yourself is slowly going crazy through the course of the novel
