The Brothers Karamazov

I just finished reading The Brothers Karamazov by Dostoevsky. It wouldn't call it a fun, easy read. (It was my first time reading Russian literature, so it took me a while to get used to the mulitiple Russian names for each character.) BUT I loved it. I really loved Dostoevsky's writing style, and his ideas on salvation, fatherhood and family relations, and human nature....among other things. It gave me so much to think about. And lots and lots of great quotes and ideas to add to my reading log. Wonderful book!
