D is for Fyodor Dostoevsky, the Writer of three of my favourite novels Crime and Punishment, Brothers Karmazov and Notes from the Underground.
Crime and Punishment is the story of Raskolnikov who plans and executes the murder of an elderly pawnbroker. He believes that criminals get caught because in the moments (the moments of crime) when they need to be level headed and logical they become heedless and emotional. So if one is level headed one can get away with it, the question of right and wrong doesn't come into it. But will Raskolnikov get away with it?
Have you read this or any other book by Dostoevsky? What do you think about it?
