    The Idiot by Fyodor Dostoyevsky (PrincessPaulina, zasmine)
    PrincessPaulina: "The Idiot" is overlooked compared to Dostoevsky's other work, but in my opinion it's the most engaging. Deals with upper crust society in pre-revolutionary Russia
    zasmine: For more of his social dissection

    The Stranger by Albert Camus (chrisharpe, DLSmithies)
    DLSmithies: A compare-and-contrast exercise - Raskolnikov is all nervous energy and hypertension, whereas Meursault is detatched, calm, and won't pretend to feel remorse. Two masterpieces.

I cannot say that I enjoyed the book as much as I was told I would: Raskolnikov was annoying and frankly whiny and I could not get behind his moral dilemmas.

The other main character line: that of the Marmeladov family was far more fascinating. Their struggles and inner life were captivating and their suffering: touching and at times painful to read. ( )
