This summer I wanted to read a book that was a "smart people book." So I thought I would read Crime and Punishment, since I love crime stories so much. I really did not expect myself to love this book so much. It was so intense and thrilling. I read the last 130 pages in one sitting it got so intense. During the last pages, all of the subplots finally climaxed and I realized they were more than just subplots. The ending was great, I nearly cried when the book was over. This is one of the few books that when I finished, I wanted to start reading it all over again. I would recommend this book to anyone, it is not such a hard read at all.

Quite Disappointing

Of course I didn't want to read the book from the start, but as I am in an Advanced course at school I must. I did not enjoy reading Crime and Punishment. It has some improper grammar in it (ie: 'Raskolnikov waked up') Which can cause people to twitch, such as myself. ...

    Not Recommended!

    I read a couple of Tolstoys books and had hoped this too would be along those lines but I do believe this it the worst book I ever read. I was so relieved when I finished it. I never want to see it again. The murder is at the beginning of the book and you're drug from one misfortune to the next before it ever ends. Guess that's what I get for wanting to read the classics. How on earth could this be a classic I'd like to know?

    This book was SOOO BORING!!!!! Don't read it!! It has WAY too many details about stuff you don't need to know! It is really stupid and absolutely, positively boring!! It is a short book, but it takes forever to read beacuse you have to force yourself to read it!! It is definately not one of those books you can get into!! STAY AWAY!!!!!!!
