It was really intense during Raskolnikov's planning, I got way into the thinking like him which doesn't happen to often when I read but it was also like 1 am when I started it. I don't really know how to feel, I didn't understand the dream sequence where the horse get beaten, but if you read that part it's kind of like an expression of the whole story. Plus the bad guy ends up living happily in the end, all around 10/10 will not put through a paper shredder.

I've been reading crime and punishment and I just want to know one thing. What is up with Dostoevsky naming places : "S-----y Lane", " K-------n Bridge", "------y Street", etc. What are the names of these places?
>>7590737 It's a literary convention: http://ask.metafilter.com/72590/Why-censor-town-names
basically it's a dialed down version of "protect the innocent" or "suspend your disbelief." Presumably with Dosto it was "protect the innocent," since you don't want your street being associated with an axe murderer.
