This review is from: Crime and Punishment (Penguin Classics) (Kindle Edition)
Dostoyevsky explores Crime, punishment and redemption in surroundings of poverty squalor and intellectual consideration of man as individual and as part of a society. If there is a weakness for the reader today it would be that the redemption effected is a Christian one and the ending may be construed as sentimental BUT as the ethical standards in our largely secular society relate closely to those of a Christian society this is for the individual reader to decide.
The exploration of a mind is what entices me to read and reread this book..
