    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".

    Overall

    By which I mean to say that the narration had me positively exasperated. There were so many gasping breaths and turn-blue-in-the-face strings of sentences that I found myself concentrating largely on the reading of the book and not the story. The novel is mediocre, extremely slow in places, riveting and suspenseful in others. Any novel that does a half decent job at getting into the head of a confused sociopath earns at least two stars in my opinion. All in all, by the end of the story, I was more than ready to put down my iPod, choke the narrator, and send myself to Siberia.
