Crime and Punishment

Crime and Punishment - Fyodor Dostoyevsky,  Constance Garnett Incessant narcissism in all its depressing, obsessive, and long-winded glory.

To paraphrase Macbeth, it is a tale, told by an obsessive self-absorbed non-idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying very little.

Note: The last 10% was rather good and interesting, so this book doesn't get a 1 star, after all.
