Anonymous whispered : *drapes self seductively over the askbox* Senpai, you must post more memes~!

Senpai is currently busy with exams. I haven’t read any literature since February *cries*.

horatio-the-potato whispered : So this really hot guy just moved in next door, and yesterday, I finally got the nerve to chat him up. Turns out, he is just as obsessed with Dostoevsky as I am. Also, his name is Ivan. My name is Katya.

OMG you guys are meant to be together

Please invite me to your wedding *cries*

amethystic-flare whispered : Oh oh, how about The House Of The Dead (or Memoirs or however it is they translate it)? I think it's one of his best, he literally created a reality inside of a reality (since prison is so much different from the outside world).

Honestly it might be my favourite book because it’s like an autobiography. He used every moment he lived there to express the mentality of people who are caged. Yet he didn’t write it directly from his perspective but he put his words in the protagonist’s mouth. And by default I think it’s one of his books that are completely different from the rest.

Anonymous whispered : What about Humiliated and Insulted? PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEE I'M DESPERATE

man i don’t even remember what happened in that book. i’ll reread and try to make up something.

Me the first time I read it: Is it the same person or...
aireyverkhovensky whispered : AT LEAST YOURE NOT DEAD, SENPAI

I don’t understand how this blog gains so many followers when I haven’t updated it for months. Anyway, in Russia I found and bought a short version of Brothers Karamazov. Actually I asked the lady working in the store for books I can read (my level in russian is A2-B1) and she gave me classic books shortened and with pictures for kids. I haven’t started it yet but I think it’s a very clever and nice way to get kids interested in classic literature, even when they can’t fully grasp the messages of each book.

I’d like to welcome the new followers and suggest everyone to submit their own meme ideas so the blog can start running again (at least till I have some time to read another Dostoyevsky book).
