Apologies
« on: February 02, 2013, 07:43:26 AM »
If I have said anything in the past to make you uncomfortable, if I have said anything you thought improper, if I have said anything scandalous, if I have said anything blasphemous, if I have said anything that gave too much information, if I have been rude, if I have been arrogant, if I have been prideful, then I apologize. I realise this post is to some extent self-indulgent and prideful, but all I can say is that it is at least from the heart, and my motives are in the right place (I hope!)  Forgive me.

Worse. Reading two Dostoevsky novels at one time.  :D

That should be a very sobering activity.
One cannot be drunk and follow along with two Dostoevsky's novels. He has too many characters.

The hardest part for me is when they switch up the names. You don't just have to keep track of 20 characters, you also have to keep track of multiple names/nicknames for many of them.  :angel:  I am much enjoying both novels this time around though, more than I have in the past.

The Idiot, which last time I thought was too soap-opera-y, but this time I'm much enjoying; and The Brothers Karamazov, which I've tried to read several times but found too dry before, but again am enjoying it now.
