Crime and Punishment (UK) | David Zane Mairowitz

Pickpick

A necessarily simplified version of Dostoevsky's classic, this was a good adaptation within the confines of a graphic novel.
Mairowitz and Korkos set the action in modern Russia to draw parallels between the corruption and inequality of Tzarist Russia and Putin's Russia. Worth an hour of most people's time, I think.

What a pleasure to dive in this 19th century classic! I like all the social commentaries sprinkled in 19th century works (it's important to remember they weren't written for the hoi polloi, but for intellectuals to be later discussed in literary salons).
In this particular book, I like the fantasy-like atmosphere of not really knowing what belongs to the dream and what belongs to reality.
First Russian classic, but it won't be my last.

IuliaC Great review! 3mo
Adventures-of-a-French-Reader @IuliaC Thanks! I love essays and philosophical discussions, so when I'm in the mood, I love diving into a 18th or 19th century book. They are often representative of the ideas circulating at the time. 3mo

It‘s not at all what I imagined it to be by the name of the book. It‘s amazing to think that much of the middle class in Russia at the time (1860‘s) were actually a lot more progressive thinking and rational then most of the people in our country are today.

I can‘t tell if I liked this book or was completely bored by the book. I felt like I was slightly going mad from it. Maybe that was Dostoyevsky‘ point.

Pickpick

Now in the book, the main protagonist is determined to kill his landlady. After planning with anxiety Raskolnikov confronts the person and eventually locking her in a room his kill has been completed. Few seconds later someone else comes in and without hesitation kills the landladies sister and now having to deal with two victims he is confronted with his own fears. Soon after he attempted to clean his weapon but a certain event had taken place.

Alex.Haydon This event was an interruption from other people who had been ringing for the landlady and now Raskolnikov is in a stress filled predicament.
If you like books that have murder, filled with tense situations than this book is for you.
The point of view is Third person omniscient, this is expressed by how the protagonists thoughts are well explained with depth and not only that of the main character but others as well.

The main character Raskolnikov sees multiple people who try and tell him that people are not to be trusted through out part one of this book. After some time in a pawnshop he goes to a bar where he meets a guy named Marmeladov who has lost his job just a short while ago; he talks about all the horrible events that transpired in his life. He talked about how his daughter went into prostitution and the main character opposes this idea.

Alex.Haydon Later he receives a letter from his mom who explains what she has been doing and about the person who was marrying his sister. Raskolnikov knows this is a bad person and wants this marriage to stop. Later in the day he comes across a abused girl and pays police to take her home safely but his is worried that the police cannot be trusted. He has a dream after this event which makes him think that he cannot commit to a murder plan.
9mo
Alex.Haydon If you like books that are a murder story that is filled with mystery and curiosity that can intrigue the reader then this is the book for you.
A theme of this book is detachment with society as seen by Raskolnikov who does not like people and socializing. He uses the people as a tool and uses them for himself since he does not trust anyone.

At first, Raskolnikov‘s pride separates him from society. He sees himself as superior to all other people and so cannot relate to anyone. Within his personal philosophy, he sees other people as tools and uses them for his own ends.

Italo Calvino defined a classic as “a book that has never finished saying what it has to say “. Certainly Crime and Punishment fits this with its provocative ideas that are as relevant today as they were in 1866. The novel is an existential exploration of morality and amorality and how these are not fixed values, but determined by culture. The reader has room to draw their own conclusions about right & wrong. #tropesinaugust #villainredemption

but they believe that a social system that has come out of some mathematical brain is going to organise all humanity at once and make it just and sinless in an instant, quicker than any living process....That's why they so dislike the living process of life; they don't want a living soul! The living soul demands life, the soul won't obey the rules of mechanics, the soul is an object of suspicion, the soul is retrograde!

⭐⭐⭐
I don't understand the story well enough to give Crime and Punishment a proper review. From my perspective it follows the account of a mentally ill man who commits murder due in part to his environment. Tied into this main narrative runs several love stories which are fraught with tragedy. Crime & Punishment is a classic Russian novel to the core. Not my style but I'm glad to have read it.

Dostoyevsky is as brilliant as ever. Probably one of few writers from the past who remains valid and relevant in today's time. Somebody told me if you want to read phycology, read Dostoyevsky and I must say that he appeals all of your minds faculty. The story flows so naturally that the length of the book becomes irrelevant.

I have to say this was a lot more fun than I thought it would be. I knew it was about an axe murder but there was so much more going on. There was a good look into the psychology of crime and a more cerebral look into what classifies a crime. There was also a lot of sheer soapy drama throughout. I can see why so many people like this.
