Make sure you only buy this translation,
This review is from: Crime and Punishment (Oxford World's Classics) (Paperback)
You probably know all about the general storylines and themes of this book, and how it delves into just about every area of human life from the existence of God to alcoholism... So I'll just speak of the translation. This is the ONLY English translation worth buying, it is poetic, fluid, and at times even lyrical but is always faithful to Dostoevsky's original.  You can only really appreciate this novel in English through this translation.
