Just finished this and I am convinced that the only reason people like this book is because there was not much media back then and reading was one of the few enjoyments there was.

Takes forever to pick up both before and after the climax.

Then the after chapters are excruciating. I think JK Rowling's Book 5 of the Harry Potter series was better and I fucking hated that book.

Protag is a complete piece of shit, just when you be a little sympathetic towards him, he does something shitty making you hate him.

I still think it is worth a read for the conclusion because you just want to see where everyone ends up and the initial drama of after the climax was entertaining, but holy fuck was it a struggle. I mean I get it is supposed to be psychological, but it is hard to feel connect and understand someone who feels like he is not feeling any remorse. Literally only reason he does something right is because someone else tells him to go to that right path.

Good riddance to nihilism, I guess. Tough luck seeking redemption in the Gospels without the actual Gospels, tho.

Is Part 1 the best part of this book? I’m halfway through part 2 and nodding off from boredom.

This. Nabokov was trash and I hate him mainly just for bashing Dosto.

Anyway, Crime and Punishment taught me that everybody is worth something and should treated with respect. Now I believe that everybody is worth something and that I should treat them with respect. Sonya's also my gf haha. Nah just kidding, she's fictional character really.

Crime and Punishment Is my favorite book. I loved the story and all of the characters. The ending and the epilogue hit me hard in my heart.

When you read a translation of a novel, say, Crime and Punishment, are you reading Dostoevsky’s work or are you reading the translator’s work?
Have I really read Dostoevsky if I can’t read Russian?

>Love yourself before all, because everything in the world is based off self-interest. If you love only yourself you will set your affairs up properly, and your caftan will also remain in one piece. And economic truth adds that the more properly arranged personal affairs and, so to speak, whole caftans there are in society, the firmer its foundations are and the better arranged its common cause. It follows that by acquiring solely and exclusively for myself, I am thereby precisely acquiring for everyone, as it were, and working so that my neighbor will have something more than a torn caftan, not from private, isolated generosities now, but as a result of universal prosperity.
Dostoevsky utterly and unequivocally btfo communists before communists even existed.

I really wish I knew Russian because I feel like there is a melodramtic flair to this that just doesn't translate to English
