Absolutely amazing. Truly an insightful look into human nature. This book was written over 100 years ago in Russia, yet I swear some of the characters could have been from modern day America.

Dostoevsky has a way of working in little stories into the larger narrative that I find fascinating and entertaining. Every chapter seems to contain a little vignette that details the life of Czarist Russia.

St. Petersburg itself is a character in the story. The impression you get of the city is that it is cold, ugly, and just generally inhuman, which contributes much to the motivation of the main character.

A true masterpiece.
