    I tried to read the trilogy right after I graduated from college. I think I saw it on the list of “greatest books” and started feeling self-conscious, so I went and got a copy. Couldn’t finish. Mostly because I am lazy, but this strikes me as one of those books that you really need to read, or at least start to read, in a class, with a teacher. I was so damn lost. Not as lost as I was in Ulysses, but lost.

    Since I am confessing: I couldn’t read the Brothers Karamozov, either. I tried about 10 times, and I never even made it to the part where the dad gets killed. He gets killed, right?Report
