Crime & Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Well, I did try! Crime and Punishment

I got 25% of the way through Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s Crime & Punishment (I would tell you what page I got to, but was reading on the kindle – so it’s percentages only I’m afraid).

I got to after the crime Raskolnikov committed, and someway into the punishment. But it just felt all a bit confused, rather ridiculous and like very little was really going to happen for the next 75%.

I might try it again one day, try and read it in one sitting.

But for now – I’ve satisfied the little curiosity I had for the ending by cheating. Yes, I visited spark notes and read their synopsis of the plot. Glad to say, but for a few twists and turns it was broadly predictable.
