SEMI-REGULAR MUSINGS FROM THE SEMI-REGULAR MIND OF WRITER J.M. DeMATTEIS
After reading Brooklyn Dreams, and Moonshadow, and these interviews, you've inspired me to read Dostoyevsky. I just started The Brothers Karamazov this evening.
That's great, Randy! When you're done, check back in and let me know what you think.
I finished The Brothers Karamazov last night. There were a few tedious parts, and some seemingly endless paragraphs, but overall I was really surprised at how good it was.Alyosha was great; I loved him. I also really liked the Elder Zosima, too.Towards the middle of the book, there's a pivotal scene where Alyosha wakes up from a dream and goes outside at night, under the stars. I hope I never forget that scene; it was so beautiful and magnificent.Anyway, thanks for helping to expand my literary horizons!
You're very welcome, Randy. And sorry about the delay in responding. Google has been having problems with notifications and I just found out that I've been missing a ton of comments.
