Book Log: Reading Crime and Punishment

Currently reading Fyodor’s Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment. This is my second book for my 2013 Book Reading Challenge. Like last year, I am trying to read 50 books before the year ends. I finished it last year, and I hope that I will be finishing it this time too.

There is something about reading Russian literature. Last year I read Rand and Tolstoy and all I can say is that I am impressed with Russian writers. They do really know how to weave their plot very, very tightly. Chekhov and Yevtushenko, I have read them in high school and college. And so far in reading CP, Russian lit is still being a hit for me.

I have to admit though that I am quite reading CP at a very slow pace. In fact, the only time that I get to read the book is during my transit times from home to work and back. I also get to read it a few minutes before I sleep. Working overtime seems to clutter my night already but I am thankful for that. However, I find CP quite a chore to read because of Dostoyevsky’s sentences (If you follow my Book Log Series, you know how long sentences and paragraphs irks me)

Hope I will finish this on time.
