Overview

Crime and Punishment is a novel by the Russian author Fyodor Dostoyevsky. Crime and Punishment focuses on the mental anguish and moral dilemmas of Rodion Romanovich Raskolnikov, an impoverished ex-student in St. Petersburg who formulates and executes a plan to kill an unscrupulous pawnbroker for her cash. Raskolnikov argues that with the pawnbroker's money he can perform good deeds to counterbalance the crime, while ridding the world of a worthless parasite. He also commits this murder to test his own hypothesis that some people are naturally capable of, and even have the right to do, such things. Several times throughout the novel, Raskolnikov justifies his actions by connecting himself mentally with Napoleon Bonaparte, believing that murder is permissible in pursuit of a higher purpose.

    This is a fake.

    I bought this thinking it was the entire book, but it is just the first 70 pages... DO NOT BUY!

    Crime and Punisment

    A must read. I couldn't put the book down until it was finished and was hopingt to continue it even after the end. A gripping tale of a man's desparate fight with himself and society, one could say, but there is more to this story than meets one's eyes. Read my fellow readers and be captivated by the actors in this book.

    I found this book to be much easier to read than most classics.

    I found this book to be much easier to read than most classics. The personalities and culture took a little getting used to, but became endearing after a while. The language was sometimes confusing, but not unbearably so. I do think this book is worth reading.
