✔ “I was surprised to find I really liked this book. It sounds ominous but is actually engaging and entertaining. The crime is committed early and though shocking, is examined from every angle throughout the rest of the book as Raskolnikov himself tries to understand it and seeks redemption in the form of punishment.” – Rachel
