Crime and Punishment Review



      Over the month I was assigned to read Crime and Punishment for my AP Lit class. The first thing I thought was: "UGH! Another boring, tedious classic". (Keep in mind that I had just finished the classic 'Scarlet Letter' which was absolute torture!). As I started reading it, I wasn't really into it. As the book progressed, I found the character of Raskolnikov intriguing. If you are interested in human psychology this is the book for you. Fyoder Dostoevsky lets you delve into the disturbing mind of a 23 year old Russian student in the mid 1800's. It's a fascinating read and truly lives up to it's classic reputation. - Abby
