CRIME AND PUNISHMENT
I've just started reading Crime and Punishment, by Fyodor Dostoevsky--one of my favorite all-time authors. Have any of you read this book? If so, WITHOUT GIVING THE ENTIRE PLOT AWAY would you mind giving me your critical analysis of this book--perhaps in comparison with The Brothers Karamazov? Also, if any of you out there in the great blogosphere are into Russian writers in general--as I am--would you mind telling me who your favorite author is, and why? So many people say that Tolstoy was a far superior writer than Dostoevsky; I'm just not too sure about that. I just finished reading War and Peace this past summer; I suppose my thoughts on Crime and Punishment may inform who's writing I like the best. For now, I love them both! (Along with Gogol, too.)
Thanks for your input.
