sure was an awful father!
Also, things happened.
I bought this book, and probably started reading it, way back in August of last year. I knew it would be a slow read, but still put it down many times. One problem was that I read it on my kindle, and long, rambling paragraphs would last for pages and pages on that device, and I’d often fall asleep before the end of a section. Then, the next night, I’d have to backtrack to the beginning, because I had completely lost the train of thought. Maybe this just isn’t a bedtime reading book? I do know that, once I committed to reading it in longer sections during the day, I made more progress.
Thoughts? I don’t have many. I feel like it was too much book to process. I even wrote to a friend – an English scholar/teacher – and asked him what to think. He sent me a number of response papers written for a graduate course on Dostoevsky, and I realized that this is a book that might require deeper study. (Perhaps I’ll have to audit that Dostoevsky course next time it’s offered. How nerdy would that be?)
