Any Raskolnikovs out there?
I too like killing loansharks in order to prove that I am a Higher Man... and then get violently sick when I see that I am not.
Reading Dostoevsky is like watching an extreme super slow motion train wreck with microscopic zoom-ins of every detail grotesque and mundane.
Read Crash by Ballard, exactly what you described but sex
Joy to sadness, good to evil, love to suffering
My favorite author! Cannot describe how much I love his work. In every single one of his works there is something to resonate with.
“You're not Dostoevsky,' said the citizeness, who was getting muddled by Koroviev. Well, who knows, who knows,' he replied.
'Dostoevsky's dead,' said the citizeness, but somehow not very confidently.
'I protest!' Behemoth exclaimed hotly. 'Dostoevsky is immortal!”
― Mikhail Bulgakov, The Master and Margarita
Notes from Underground is a favorite.
Reading crime and punishment . The man has a way with words

Have read crime and punishment.
Found a copy of Bros Karamazov for a buck, it's on the docket.
What is the value of suffering exactly to Dostoevsky?
Don't know his official statement but just from this quote, without suffering you wouldn't be able to love / be loved which is pretty valuable...
Just started Notes From a Dead House
The Upvote is for Dostoevsky
Haven’t read his books yet but I’ve seen some analysis of his work and his overall philosophy and I’ve got to say his work would go nicely with my reading of Spinoza and Kierkegaard. Those are my favorite philosophers. If you enjoy his work I would highly recommend the films of Andrei Tarkovsky.
yuh, I believe love is apart of life which would make sense for all this suffering lol :\] cause ded betches don't feel pain, alive & suffering xx
I really liked brothers Karamazov. Dostoevsky is an interesting writer to me because his world is so different from mine but the way he writes and the perspectives he shows feel so modern is some ways
Can’t argue with that 👻
Not currently but he comes up several times in my "to-do list" for books I want to read.
I vibed too hard with notes from the underground as a teenager and still lowkey worry about ending up like that guy XD
He is so boring to read, I can't.
