Notes from a Dead House: I've read 75 out of 336 pages.

Notes from a Dead House - Richard Pevear, Larissa Volokhonsky, Fyodor  Dostoevsky

This is this month's Classic Club read. A fictionalized account of Dostoyevsky's imprisonment in Siberia.

 

So far, even though it jumps around a LOT, it makes sense. It is just like reading someone's journal.

 

I don't think I'll be able to keep straight who is who though. Russian names are my kryptonite.

 

And this new edition changes the title. The original title of most of the other editions is The House of the Dead, and I can't say I like the change. What kind of hubristic asses are the translators anyway?
