    Crime And Punishment

    Began reading Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment, pretty heavy book. It is very introspective, and you really feel the torment of the main charecter. Just shortly after the crime has been commited...

    Not Sure Where to Start

    I had to read few in school, but now I am interested in trying some.  I just am unsure of where to start. I prefer reading non-fiction, but I think if I tried some classics, I could at least say I've read them, right?  All I had to read in school was: Great...

    Leo Tolstoy

    I've started reading Anna Karenina. This book so far reminds me of today someway ....  A man who is married to a woman who has bore him 7 children (2 died) and she just discovered he has a mistress. Needless to say the wife is taken aback -- and he is remorseful...

    Newer Novels

    The stories aren't as good. They tend to be either very poorly written or based on the classics. I'll skip to reading books which I know are going to be good.
