Crime and Punishment is a classic published in 1866. Determined to overreach his humanity and assert his untrammeled individual will, Raskolnikov, and impoverished student living in the St. Petersburg of the Tsars, commits an act of murder and theft and sets into motion a story which, for its excruciating suspense, its atmospheric vividness, and its profundity of characterization and vision, is almost unequaled in the literatures of the world.
An acclaimed new translation of the classic Russian novel.

You are told to fear the length of this book from childhood. It turns out to be a hypnotic read. Very glad I tried it!
