        Yes, I read it in my native Russian. Sorry anon, but you haven't truly read it. Why not instead read some Dan Brown.

          Why would it matter if it was in russian or in translation? It’s a bad book. Everybody agrees even diehard Dostoyevsky fans.

          It was like he was trying to do Gogol but didn’t know how.

      Burt Lancaster acted in a 60's movie called The Swimmer that was a very similar story.

      Why do you think Nabokov loved it so much? I believe he called it the only Dostoy work that could be called literature

    There was a strong sense of dyspepsia in the victorian era. It was a weakness of the bowels from execrable food quality and intolerable living conditions that made Dostoyevsky and Edgar Allen Poe evolve parallel world views on the opposite sides of the planet.

    It really wasn't that bad anon. Remember that he was only 23 when he wrote it and was trying incredibly hard to be Gogol.
    Still though, it was an interesting portrayal of severe social anxiety/paranoia, even if the actual plot driver was hokey Gogol derivative
