Crime and Punishment is the story of a crime - a double murder committed by a student for the money. However simple the plot is, the novel becomes etched into the mind and soul of a reader or listener. What is so enigmatic about it? Besides the plain and obvious - that it is all due to Dostoevsky's genius - there is at least one other explanation: some questions do not have any unsophisticated and definite answers. Poverty, distress, and the suffering of loved ones have always pushed people to make a choice: May I break any moral law now to save those humiliated and support those weak in the future, or shall I love myself first and then, after becoming stronger, love my neighbor? These are eternal questions.

    " More challenging than any thriller book or movie I have read / seen in years. Vivid descriptions, dramatic turns of situation, a very refined analysis of human mind. "

    " Crime and Punishment centers upon the story of a young Russian student, Raskolnikov, who plots and carries out a brutal murder. However, this is less than a quarter of the story. The rest centers upon his attempts to come to terms with the philosophical and psycological consequences of his act. Aiding, or hindering, him in this endevor are a series of characters from the kind-hearted prostitute Sonia and her drunken father, the unrepentant scoundrel Svidrigailov, Raskolnikov's best friend Razumihin, and the police detective come amateur psychologist Porfiry Petrovich. Though the story develops slowly, with many detours, Raskolnikov's journey through crime and punishment remains gripping until the very last page. "

    " It took a little while to get into it, and I think this is partly because of when it was written and the language that was used. It definitely didn't draw me in the way most good modern books do, but it was still enjoyable, and the story was good. "
