The Classic Club Spin # 33



Time for another Classic Club Spin, and this month the wheel ended up on # 18. For me that is The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky.


I can only say that I will not be able to read it until the dead-line. I bought the physical book recently at the book sales, and, as you know, it is thick. I want to read the great books of Dostoyevsky, but am not ready to do it now. Furthermore, I am travelling and the book is back in Sweden. It just have to sit and rest for a while.


In the meantime I am reading another classic author, Stefan Zweig. I visited Salzburg during the weekend and bought two of his books. He lived there for some years. More about him, his life and books later. The visit to his house is a story in itself.

It seems to be one of his best. I really liked Crime and Punishment and if this is better, I might get through it faster than I think.

Fantastic. I really liked The Brothers Karamazov, but then, I like almost all Russian novels. For me, the spin resulted in a book recommended by you, Barabbas.

Marianne, I understand this is one of his best novels. Looking forward reading it later on. I saw on you blog that you got Barabbas. I thought it was a great novel. At the time I had not really read anything by Lagerkvist so it was a big surprise. I hope you will like it. Anyway, it is not a long novel.

Seems like I read the "Brothers" years ago -- or maybe I just saw it on Masterpiece Theatre. I'm interested in learning more about Zweig. ~ jeanie

It is a thick book, but I hope to get through it one day. More about Zweig will come up both on this blog and in the newsletter. A great acquaintance.
