It's hard not to read some of the main character's experiences as autobiographical, since Dostoyevsky had a gambling addiction, wrote the book to pay off his own gambling debts, etc. Dostoyevsky writes about the process of gambling for high stakes at the roulette table in such a way that it conveys some of the physical sensations of adrenaline. As a story, I feel like most of the "action" of the plot was front-loaded into the first half of the book, with the rest given to complex character development and motivations. That said, it's a good audio-read. Check it out!
