Marmeladov was so fucking annoying in that little arc where he was sharing his story with raslolovikic drunk at the pub

Like holy fucking, he was talking for 5 pages with FIVE ALL OF TEXTS.

I skipped basically the entirety of it when i saw how crudely it was written in one big blocky format. Too much strain on my eyes

what did i miss?

What is he intended to show the reader in the book? It would seem like he is a monolithic "bad guy." He is a pedophile, he attempted to rape Dunya and he drove his servent to suicide. Yes, he did give money to Sonia and the other kids but it seems like it was an attempt to groom them. So what is the reasoning for Dostoevsky to put such a one dimensional character in the book?

I've just finished this bad boy, and the epilogue left me puzzled. Raskolnikov was immoral because he didn't regret the murder, suffered for a while (but not in a good way because he was still not regretful), then got reborn. So if suffering selflessly is the key to salvation, how did Raskolnikov manage to get reborn without suffering selflessly even for a moment? This is obviously something to do with Sonia, but I couldn't put my finger on it.
Was he saved because
-Sonia suffered in his place;
-He felt bad for her and that caused him to selflessly suffer;
-Something else?

Did George Orwell borrow inspiration from Dostoevsky? The scene where Porfiry "interrogates" Raskolnikov is almost identical to the interrogation part in 1984 with Winston and O'Brien.

What did it all mean? I've just finished reading it and I feel like I didn't get it, at least not 100%. Needless to say, I feel a bit disappointed. Will I enjoy it more when I reread it? I feel like I will.

This would be the third work by Dostoevsky I've read. There's Crime and Punishment, Netochka Nezvanova, and White Nights. The first is probably the most interesting of the three, but it still felt a bit underwhelming.

Have I picked my Dostoevskys wrong? What are his best novels? What did you think of those three books I mentioned?

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.
