A review of Crime and Punishment by Dostoyevsky

I included this book on my list with high expectations that it was money in the bank. I’d read The Brother’s Karamazov the summer I was 19, and it knocked me out with its profundity, and a friend had suggested that Crime and

A review of The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
