    "One of the greatest novels of all time, Crime and Punishment was both revolutionary when it was written and still fresh even in the modern age. Rather than being a typical detective story or crime drama, Crime and Punishment instead puts us directly into the shoes of a double murderer, and forces us to fully understand his perspectives and motivations for the horrible crimes he's committing, the mental anguish he suffers as a result of them, and his inner struggle for redemption. This is truly an unforgettable masterpiece that should not be missed."

    "I had to read this when I was in school and thought that it was just okay. As with most stuff that you are forced to read because it is supposedly a classical piece of literature, it was overrated. At times I found myself to be bored and my mind wandering while I was still reading the lines of text. It might be worth a read but only one time."
