    When an extra $5,000 shows up in her bank account, Kinsey Millhone puts it down to clerical error. But suddenly the deposit makes sense. It's not a mistake, it's a setup!

    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.

    Greg says: "Wonderful Book"
    "If you want to be unhappy, read this book."
    Overall

    My God! How depressing! This book is based on the whims of an ego maniac an a mother, sister, friends, and strangers who are all enablers. They allows this young man to wallow and wallow and wallow in emotion and laziness to the almost destruction of everyone. What a moron! I wanted to slap this guy and say "Get a grip!" It's all about attitude. How can anybody be so emotional and such a dreamer and be surprised when they accomplish so little? What a depressing waste of time! Read Canyfreak instead. At least you'll feel good about yourself!

    Andrea Sachs, a small-town girl fresh out of college, is hired as the assistant to Miranda Priestly, the successful editor of Runway magazine. Andrea finds herself in an office that shouts Prada! Armani! Versace! at every turn. As things escalate from the merely unacceptable to the downright outrageous, Andrea begins to realize that the job a million girls would die for may just kill her. And even if she survives, she has to decide whether the job is worth the price of her soul.

    Overall

    This was a very well written book. It gives great insight to how ridiculous people will act when very afraid of their boss. Great insight to the "glamour" of working for a magazine with all the frills. Anyone who has a child that wants to run away to NYC to find their fortune needs to read this to discover the true nature of NYC living and working. One major negative. The author is as guilty of devlish behavior towards anything or anyone that didn't originate in New York City. Consistently obtuse, prevaricating and insulting descriptions of southerners in the way they speak, dress, and act. As a southerner, I'm sick of it. We don't tolerate Miranda Preistly's in the south. We put them in their place and everyone goes about living happily ever after without much pretention. Now having said that, the author shows grandly in the novel that appearances are everything to the small minded, insecure, and ignorant. God must love stupid people. He made so many of them, and a lot of them read and worship rags like "Runway Magazine", the fictional setting of the year of the main character's life. Overall, enjoyable.
