Spanish Dostoyevsky

I can't rate this as a novel, it's philosophy. It's literature of the existentialist school, much similar to Dostoyevsky's Brothers Karamazov.

The essential issue of the book is that the characters are basically envious little drama-queens that invent problems in their own minds. They lack stoic-manliness because they were not exposed to Epictetus or Marcus Aurelius as children. They are basically Dostoyevsky, Camus, or Sartre characters...people without strength, virtue, character, or honor.

The narrator is good.
