I love history and biography. I throw in a classic or two and a well-written mystery. I love a long book if it is interesting.

    Fyodor Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment is universally regarded as one of literature's finest achievements, as the great Russian novelist explores the inner workings of a troubled intellectual. Raskolnikov, a nihilistic young man in the midst of a spiritual crisis, makes the fateful decision to murder a cruel pawnbroker, justifying his actions by relying on science and reason, and creating his own morality system. Dehumanized yet sympathetic, exhausted yet hopeful, Raskolnikov represents the best and worst elements of modern intellectualism. The aftermath of his crime and Petrovich's murder investigation result in an utterly compelling, truly unforgettable cat-and-mouse game. This stunning dramatization of Dostoevsky's magnum opus brings the slums of St. Petersburg and the demons of Raskolnikov's tortured mind vividly to life.

    "Great Book for Exploring the Mind of Guilt"
    Overall

    This selection is obviously a classic and is very well narrated. I highly recommend it to most readers. The only people I would steer clear of this are those who don't enjoy delving into how a mind works or how a guilty conscience can destroy. This book does not drag at all, which is a bit of a surprise given the subject matter.
