    Story

    In this intense detective thriller instilled with philosophical, religious, and social commentary, Dostoevsky studies the psychological impact upon a desperate and impoverished student when he murders a despicable pawnbroker, transgressing moral law to ultimately "benefit humanity".

    "great reading"
    Overall

    This is a dark, intense novel. The reader does an excellent job making it seem alive and interesting. I never read the book so I can't compare the reading to the actual writing by Dostoevky. It is quite lengthy. I kept wondering what else could happen to make the story so long. I was not disappointed.

    Middlemarch is a recognized masterpiece that explores the complex social world of 19th century England. It is concerned with the lives of several ordinary people, albeit ones with high social standing. The novel explores the very fabric of Victorian society in the 1800s, showing how various human passions, heroism, egotism, love, and lust, interrelate within this society.

    Francis says: "Such books make reading sacred..."
    "worth the time investment"
    Overall

    I listened to this book during my commute. It helped pass a very tedious drive. The reading did not disappoint. The novel is very long, but this gave the writer enough time to develop the characters through the course of the story. I especially enjoyed the preludes to each chapter and will use some of them to look for future readings. The themes are universal and thought-provoking. I may take the initiative now to read the book.
