Phew. I finished the Brothers Karamasov this weekend and DAMN. Sorry, I don't normally swear, but this book deserves a little emphasis. Run to the bookstore/library and start reading it. It's like Hamlet, only more accessible. It's got everything: love and romance dancing a stately waltz together, god and the devil embracing, war and peace grappling on the plains of heaven -- forgive me for getting a little purple in my prose. If you don't cry at that last scene (I won't give it away), then your heart is made of stone!
