I have been working on reading two different books. One is non-fiction and one is a novel by Fyodor Dostoevsky. The Power of the Subconscious Mind and The Brothers Karamazov could not be more different. The first is exactly what it sounds like and the second is extremely long and not so easy to read. That’s okay, though. I loved Crime and Punishment and I simply MUST read more of Dostoevsky’s work.
This post is an encouragement for others to read Crime and Punishment. It delves into the mind of a man who has convinced himself that he is so much more intelligent/higher than others so he feels justified in committing the crime of murder. Then, he lives with his conscience, which is more of a punishment than his final term in prison.
I had a difficult time getting into the book because it was written in the 1800’s and translated from Russian. However, the more I stuck with it, the more fascinated I became. If you want a challenge that ends up hooking you, Crime and Punishment is perfect.
Abby Lu’s Cafe Book Bean was my inspiration for discussing books and I want to give her the credit for that. If you love books, follow Abby Lu 🙂 . Follow me too, of course. 😉
I’ll be posting about my favorite books at least every couple of weeks. I hope you like them!
