Crime & Punishment and Anna Karenina both scare me. Lets try something new. Penguin Classics has discussion questions for some of their classics. How about we answer the questions instead of sharing our questions, comments and illuminating observations?

I will put the first question up, and see if we like the format.

Marti-
Do we answer these questions only or post the chapters too??
And do we answer these questions through out the book or at the end??

I haven't been this greatful for SparkNotes since Don Quixote. I feel like I am getting the gist of the story, but I am definitely not picking up on the 'main themes' and literary devices on my own. I am glad to read more explanation at the end of each set of chapters.

I can't really see that much depth into the book. Crime and Punishment, dah, what do we think it is about.

I really thought that it would be different than it turned out to be. I think its reputation is more than it should be.

This book was even in a claymation movie. Dog (Gromit) goes to jail and reads the story Crime & Punishment.
