Fyodor Dostoevsky – Crime and Punishment

Fyodor Dostoevsky – Crime and Punishment

The plot is simple—a young man commits murder basically for thrills, then deals with the anguish of what he has done. None of the characters are sympathetic, and the overall sensibility is constant tension, suffocation, isolation, and despair, with few letups. In other words, perfect beach reading.
