It was definitely the right call to save Brothers K for last! I feel like it contains pieces of all his other novels in it, so having already read them made it a richer experience.
Idiot savant, probably. Apparently I taught myself to read when I was 3. >>4376
I liked Crime & Punishment a lot more than I thought I would at first - the first Dostoevsky I ever read was The Idiot, which has his most idealistic and sympathetic protagonist (to me, anyway). Raskolnikov is probably his 2nd most sympathetic protagonist - depends on where you put Alexei from Brothers K - but also, I think, the only one who manages to be endearing and pitiable in his evil.
Currently almost done with The Book of Disquiet, which has been a slow and meandering read, but very beautiful.
