DON'T READ THE BLURB!!!!!!
on 22 September 2014
Obviously, the book is fantastic. I don't speak Russian and I haven't read any others so I can't comment on the translation.
However, if you want to read it for kicks rather than showing off, cover up the back cover with something, the blurb gives away a massive turn in the plot that doesn't come about until past page 500. Perhaps the story of The Brothers Karamazov is common knowledge to everyone else. There's plenty to keep you interested before page 505, so it'd be nice not to have to ponder the event before the author wants us to. If it is mentioned early on and I'm being an ass I apologise, but I don't think it is.
