Crime and Punishment

Anyone else read it? Read it last year, and this seems like the most appropriate place for any discussion. Struggled to get through it initially, but loved it towards the end.

I haven't had a chance to get through it yet, but it's on the list. I've noticed it has an interesting little Tumblr following though! I love when fandoms are small and tight knit, it's almost reason to start reading it, but I have a couple other things on my Russian literature list to get through first.

Same here. It's firmly placed in my reading list, but it definitely stands behind The Brothers Karamazov. One of these days... :)
