Publisher's Summary

A century after it first appeared, Crime and Punishment remains one of the most gripping psychological thrillers. A poverty-stricken young man, seeing his family making sacrifices for him, is faced with an opportunity to solve his financial problems with one simple but horrifying act: the murder of a pawnbroker. She is, he feels, just a parasite on society. But does the end justify the means? Rodion Romanovitch Raskolnikov makes his decision and then has to live with it. Dostoyevsky, in masterly fashion, contrasts the comedy and tragedy of life in St. Petersburg with the anguish and turmoil of Raskolnikov's inner life.

Good story, reading

Well it's Dostoyevsky, what is there to say? Very depressing and long winded, but at the heart of it, a really interesting story. Most books suffer terribly from abridgment - I dare say this would not. The most enjoyable parts of this book is when the main character is discussing the nature of crime and who may commit it. More often than not, though, it was a rather boring angst-fest. I hate to say that, but there it is. The reader did quite a good job, I enjoyed the performance!
