      Thanks for A2A. Fyodor Dostoevsky happens to be my favorite author; ranked slightly higher than Ernest Miller Hemingway in my stack of top 10 favorite authors. For one to peruse Dostoevsky and really appreciate what he/she read; it is assumed that. I wanted to read dostoevsky for a long time but was intimidated by it, despite having read some serious books by american authors. I thought that the age of it, his reputation, and the fact that id be reading a translation would hold me back from getting what i could from the reading.
