    "Mentioned by Chris Hedges or not, this book in incredibly boring. It feels like I'm listening to a man just ramble on and on about the same thing for hundreds of pages. Hard pass from me."

    "Notes From Underground was one of the best existential fiction books that I've ever read. While the book was somewhat short, each word on the page had purpose and movement. This book makes you think and it also makes you unable to put it down. "

    "Fragmented story of a man's mental illness and self torture. He wants things he never can allow to happen, sabotages all his possibilities and makes far flung attempts to justify it as possibly being a better way to live. I'm not sure I'd want to read it but some might. Seems rather nightmarish."

    "Notes From Underground for it being short is a long read. Written by one of Russia best selling authors Fyodor Dostoyevky. A men leaves to be alone but seems to hate the world for being alone. The book is split up over a few events and times in his life. Many notes and pages of society. "

    "This is one of the most riveting and complex novels I have ever read as is all of all of Jordon Peterson's work. This book goes so deep into the character, Dostoevsky's, thoughts. It is so well written and interesting that I could not stop reading it. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is interested in a great novel."

    "Dostoyevsky shares insights into irrational behaviors and the need for freedom via a spiteful character. Reading this text left me feeling a bit agitated, though less so than with "Crime and Punishment." I found the translation to be readable and clear. Easily readable on Kindle."
