Dostoevsky . . . will I ever finish this book!

Well I seem to have been coming across references to Dostoevsky's books in so many things that I've been reading lately that I thought I'd give him a go!
I'm not usually a big reader of novels, but I'm 60 pages into The Karamazov Brothers . . . just another 900 or so to go then! At least I'm getting an education in all things Russian!!

Wow - you reading a novel?

I've been trying to get through 'Crime and Punishment' for the past two years. As my Dad says, "First you read about the crime and then you suffer the punishment!"

I did think maybe the 500 or so pages of Crime and Punishment might be a better place to start rather than the 950 or so of THe Karamazov Brothers - but I've started it now, and I hate giving up on a book!!
