Dear readers, The Idiot by Fyodor Dostoyevsky has followed me everywhere. i even left it on a park bench for someone else to take it only find it three weeks later on another bench with note. i had put it on the bench originally because real life was breaking my heart and this book seemed a witness to it, so i left it there but always regretted that i did, so to find it again well.......
People who know me know my love for the great Russian writers, some of you have even wrote in surprise that i had not choose one to read. You see one day while complaining about how i could not get into so many american writers a friend told me " ah nadia i see, the Russians they ruined it for you, they are masters at details and human behaviour" that was true, it is the writing language i love the most
( even in it's translation) my heart belongs to tolstoy and others like him.
this is long read, six weeks instead a month for this book.
