2% done with The Brothers Karamazov

I’ve put this novel off for too long; it’s time to tackle this beast. Dostoyevsky’s ability to see into the heart of a person is equaled only by Tolstoy’s ability to see their minds. Here we already know what is at the core of the main characters, especially Aloysha’s gentle spirit in a family of sin. His father thinking about Devils pulling him down with hooks is both sad and comical.
