Brothers Karamazov | Fyodor Dostoevsky
post image


And indeed, behind this letter there lies a programme and premeditation. It is known to us that two whole days before the execution of his terrible design, the defendant declared that if he did not obtain the money he would kill his father & take the money from under his pillow “if only Ivan has gone away”. Here it was all considered – and what do we see: the whole thing was subsequently executed as if out of a book!

Aimeesue @TheBookHippie I mean, where could he have POSSIBLY gotten the idea from? Looking at you, Fyodor! 2mo
Ruthiella The psychology in this very long speech must be what Freud found so great? 🤔 BTW, I am no longer taking book recommendations from Sigmund. 😆 (edited) 2mo

Last bag for Friends The Apartments
🎶So no one told you life was gonna be this way
Your job's a joke, you're broke
Your love life's DOA
It's like you're always stuck in second gear
When it hasn't been your day, your week, your month
Or even your year, but
I'll be there for you 🎶 now I have to figure out where this is going to go in my house 😬

dabbe #bravo!!! 🤩🤩🤩 2mo

Aimeesue Yay! 2mo

"On a deal table stood an extinguished samovar, next to it a tray with cups, an empty bottle of rum, a not-quite-empty shtof of vodka and the remains of a wheaten loaf. The guest himself lay stretched out on a bench, with his street-clothes bunched up together under his head instead of a pillow, snoring massively."


Ruthiella Good thing you still have that blow torch so you could make the samovar! 👏👏👏 3mo

Cuilin #WhereBeckyGo love that her maid robbed her “trinkets”. Dobbin and Amelia end up together, right? I think Georgy is unfortunately going to be very much like his father. 9mo
AnnR @BarkingMadRead you are definitely not the only one wondering why Dobbin hasn't made an appearance yet. Meanwhile some of the 'Becky' chapters just seem like filler material. 9mo

Bookwormjillk @Cuilin I‘m worried it will be Dobbin and Becky 9mo
Cuilin @Bookwormjillk I hope not!! 🤨 9mo
willaful @Bookwormjillk Never! We will, as a group, invite a time machine and go whop the author's ass if that happens and force him to change it!

I'm glad Rawdon held firm, except it sucks that he's away from his son. :-(
Bookwormjillk @willaful it‘s a plan! 9mo
TheBookHippie @Bookwormjillk Me too and 😵‍💫😵‍💫😵‍💫 what the world?! 9mo
TheBookHippie @Ann_Reads I agree with the filler part. 9mo
mcctrish #finallydobbinshowsup #georgyisabrat I wonder if we are clear of Becky? 9mo
dabbe @willaful Good plan; I'm with you! 🤣🤩🤣 9mo
dabbe I hear the words of Queen Latifah in the finale of HAIRSPRAY: “It's time to wrap this mother up!“ Lots of loose ends, but they're starting to (maybe) tie together. 9mo
willaful @mctrish I suspect Becky always turns back up, like a bad penny. Though there was a certain sense of finality about her small annuity.

There's a modern retelling called The Rise and Fall of Becky Sharp, maybe we could do a buddy read of that sometime?
Ruthiella I think he might be on a boat between India and England? 🤔 9mo

Cue the fireworks and the celebration.

Met both my reading goals this year.

Target 1 : Read 275 (subsequently upped to 300) Books

✅Currently read 301 books , with two more under way. Read 170 books so far in the second half of the year.

Target 2 : Read 105,000 Pages

✅Currently read 105,061 books.

Missed both these targets in 2021. Now to think about my targets for 2023.
