    "Crime and Punishment is a landmark novel in literature and Dostoevsky's magnum opus. There is little that can be said of a classic masterpiece of this caliber in the way of criticism. It's a demanding read but one that gives you a better understanding of history, the art of writing, and a look into Dostoevsky's genius."
