Jun 27, Joey Woolfardis rated it did not like dkstoevsky Shelves: Just incredible mutterings from a shamed man and his suicidal year-old “wife”. The modern liked unreliable narrator who cannot string two sentences together without it being all about me, me, me. Mar 11, Mary rated it did not like it.
I am not quite sure what I disliked the most.
A Gentle Creature
The boring narration that made the 56page short story seem like an endless torture or the rather shallow character development. A waste of time. Crap from first to last page. Its probably a masterpiece since its Fjodor. Characterization, inner conflict etc is probably nobel prize level. Im judging this 90 page of wasted time by theme.
If you are the slightest inclined to depression or if you have done anything, however innocent, that you regret – dont read this book. It will stick its cold hand into your chest and make an iron fist around your heart, and when you turn the last page you will have a rotten feeling inside that lingers all d Crap from first to last page. It will stick its cold hand into your chest and make an iron fist around your heart, and when you turn the last page you will have a rotten feeling inside that lingers all day.
Its about the spiritual toothache of a 43 year old scumbag that has driven his 16 year old wife to suicide. As always, please excuse my poor english.
