Strand Staff Reviews
";First of all, you don't need me to tell you that this book is incredible. It has already established itself as a hyper mega classic. So here is what I was thinking while I was reading it....
As I was reading about Raskolnikov's decent into to madness, I felt myself losing grip more and more with my reality... specifically, I was becoming obsessed with the ";superman"; idea as it is reflected into the book. What is the necessary action/device that one uses to achieve that ideal status in his or her mind? I don't agree with the way that Raskolnikov achieves this status in the book, however understanding the stress of that situation, coupled with the age that I read the book (23 (same as the protagonist)), was an amazing journey.
Also, I got sick and thought I -like a bunch of characters- was getting consumption.... little did I know that I did not have Tuberculosis. I'm fine now. "; -- Jordan Y., Art Department Staff
