I enjoyed Beyond the Orchard by Azize Ethem last week ... it is a good analysis of the concept of "yabanci". As a Kiwi she is accepted into the village more than the flash Turks from the city.

 

Now reading Foreign Devils on the Silk Road. Fascinating book by Peter Hopkirk on the stealing of antiques from Xinjiang province (bit similar to LÝRs column this week ....)

Having just read the brilliant biography, Mad, Bad and Dangerous by Sir Ranulph Fiennes I thought it is about time that I read a novel.

 

So I bought the classic novel "Crime and Punishment" by Russian author Fyodor Dostoyevsky.  It was first published in 12 monthly installments in the literary journal "The Russian Messenger" in 1866 and later published in a single volume.

 

The story focuses on the mental anguish of an impoverished ex-student who plans to kill an unscrupulous pawn broker, to solve his financial misery and to rid the world of an evil worthless parasite.

 

So far, it is a griping story and the author is able to portray for the reader the torment and mental anguish felt by [the main characture,Raskolnikov], and relaying the smallest detail of his thoughts.

 Publishing in 12 installments was a great idea.  That way you get/have to digest a chapter at a time.  It´s been years since I read that book.  Do you have a reading strategy?....the book is divided into 6 parts, would you read a part a month?

I´ve started with Sofie´s World, but stopped so I can read it when I´m in Turkey (sooooon!)

It´s a good introduction on philosophy, and you´ll find Turkey in there too (as the birthplace of the first known philosophers).

 No, I shall probably finish it in a week.  I am already 1/3rd through in 3 days.
