A very interesting story about a russian peasant and his fatal actions that haunt him for most of his life. He commits a deed that he regrets later on. His family risks everything for the goodness of his sake. He seems so selfish yet he is not because in his inner personality you see a different person that wants to help others but can't because life has him deprived of money. Money buys a lot of things in this book, like in our world today. So Raskolnikov the protoganoist is living in a state of delirium. I could tell you much more, but i suggest you buy the book. It is a Russian Classic by the lovely Feodor Dostoevsky. =)

Along with The Brothers Karamazov this is my favorite among Dostoevsky's last great novels. The characterization and discussion of ideas in both of these works is as good as any in literature. If you like Hamlet, Les Miserables or War & Peace you will like this book.

I read this in college. And it was the only book I ever read in about 3 days with no trouble - and I was an English major. I thought this is a masterful story of psychology and guilt. A precursor to American Psycho. Okay, maybe stretching it. It's been 11 years since I read this. Time for a re-read.

Now it is no wonder to me why he is considered one of the best authors of all time.

It is written in a very easy to read size and font. Also it gives very detailed and concise notes at the back, and also there is a map of St. Petersburg which is very helpful.
