Review from a Transgressive Fiction Fan
What a sensational reading experience, what an unconditional surrender to an atmosphere of fear, anxiety and confusion – and to an epic battle of wills!
Rarely these days do I read with that kind of hopeless, helpless feeling of being completely, utterly lost in the imaginary world. From the first moment, when Raskolnikov steps out on the street and begins wandering around in Petersburg, to the very last pages, I live with the characters, I am part of the story, I have my own opinions, and argue against their actions, in my head, while reading on in a frenzy.
“Insightful” Review from a Mainstream Reader
Holy shit this was so boring I wanted Raskolnikov to murder me and put me out my misery. I didn’t like it from the opening page and felt the same way to the very end. Why did I endure such self flagellation you ask? I did it for the sake of “The Classic” novel. When will I learn?
