Crime and Punishment

You guys were right. This thing is absolutely engaging. I have already read the entire part 1 in a single sitting. It’s in a way very haunting how Rodion feels so realistic, especially as I can see myself becoming a burnt out neet with no motivation to do anything.
The way he had also carefully premeditated the murder before simply as a thought experiment is something I’ve done more times than I would admit. And the way Garnett shows the nervousness that invades you when realizing you actually have a chance in carrying out the plan is terrifyingly accurate too.
This might be one of the few books that has actually lived up to the hype that motivated me to read it.

      What are those considered? The ones I always hear named are
      >Brothers Karamazov
      >Demons
      >Idiot
      >Notes from Underground
      Which one am l missing?

      Also, how common are axe murderers in media and literature? I can't help but feel Bateman is partly inspired by Raskolnikov. The fact that both use axes feels too much of a coincidence, not ignoring the poor mental state of both (albeit Bateman hides it better)
      I've been partially spoilered so i know boh also end up wracked by guilt and confessing their crimes.
      Bateman feels like what raskolnikov would be like if he hadn't been poor and actually succeeded in university. What do you guys think?

            In Russia The Adolescent is held as the 5th (and notes isn't held in the same prestige). Imo it's easily the worst of those 6 books.

          Poor Folk is his most influential, not including the Idiot, C and P or Brothers K.

    It's very readable. Feels like a modern thriller.

    After reading several of his books I have come to the conclusion that Dostoy is just a bitter virgin who uses great suffering and moral dilemmas to cope with the fact that he will never get a gf. Dostoy is no more "refined" or meaningful than any other trashy YA novel despite what your fat professor might say.

    Just finished this last week, we were on vacation while I read it and brought it everywhere, enjoyed it a lot. I think I'll read something else light and less gloomy before proceeding to TBK.
