Crime and Punishment
by Fyodor Dostoevsky
I think it took me about a week to get through this book. Luckily, it’s separated into seven parts, and I tried to get through one each day. Dostoevsky is an interesting read. My friend PJ really enjoys this guy. But PJ gets him. I don’t think I completely follow everything he’s trying to get across. So it’s a good discussion book for me. It was an interesting story. I discovered something from my smart friend . . . apparently the book was written during a very political time, so Dostoevsky couldn’t name places. In the book, instead of the actual street or town name, it will say T— Street or K— Place. I thought it was weird at first, but now I learned something new. Excellent.
My reading list somehow continues to grow. It’s a little frustrating. But at least I have a 4-hour plane ride coming up on Monday. I’m going to try to make it through Pride and Prejudice and The Irresistible Revolution before camp starts.
