Notes from Underground

Complete Works of Fyodor DostoyevskyComplete Works of Fyodor Dostoyevsky by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I downloaded this ebook to read Notes From Underground on my phone when away from home while reading it in the anthology Sixteen Short Novels. There's little to excite any sympathy or empathy, but as perhaps the first existential novel it's intellectually interesting as an example of what a novel can do and for it's influence on writers that came after. I used Sparknotes liberally to help me weed through the narrators ramblings and make sense of what the author is trying to say.
