Crime and Punishment

Crime and Punishment - Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Alex Jennings, David McDuff Listened to this on audio/playaway. I wanted to read more classics this year and include some Russian classics, so this counts as two birds with one stone. I didn't record my start date, but it was probably around 5 weeks ago. It took me a long time to get through it (I took breaks when I didn't listen for a whole week or so). It was hard going at times -- the tediousness of all the angst. At other times, I thought he did a great job capturing all the anxiety, feelings of being trapped. I liked listening on audio for this book. It made it easier to keep the characters straight (Russian names being hard to sort out at times).
