The Idiot

The Idiot - Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Alan Myers, William J. Leatherbarrow I seem to admire Dostoyevsky's book titles which leads me to buying his books! However, the books turn out to be boring and I cannot get his point. 'The Idiot' was the first book I read for him, after it I read 'Notes from the Underground' and other short stories, all because of the titles... There are other of Dostoyevsky's books that I was looking forward to read like 'The Gambler' but decided not to after reading these two novels.

I dont know if I dislike Russian literature as a whole, but so far I dont like either Pushkin or Dostoyevsky. However, I stiil want to read many books by Tolstoy...
