Crime and Punishment

So from the summer of 2016 until February of 2017, in an attempt to cross one of those classics-I’ve-never-read off my list, I made my way through Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky.

I definitely took some breaks and had to force myself back into it, but here are my thoughts (sometimes basically just brief recaps) for each section. In hindsight, I wish I had read it with a class or with some group feedback along the way, but at least I’m glad I jotted down my thoughts as I went through, so maybe they can take that role for someone else who might be trying to read the book on their own.
