Down the road on mistery novels... The Woman in White or Crime and Punishment?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys =)

 

I am really in doubt each book to choose. I really enjoyed reading Holmes, but I would like to see what else is there in the (classic) mistery fiction. I am in between The Woman in White and Crime and Punishiment.

 

Have someone here read any of those to help me choose my next book =]?

 

 

Thanks a lot!

Sorry, I haven't read either of them. But if it were me, I'd go for The Woman in White, because it's more of a mystery than the other one. I think Crime and Punishment is more a study of human nature than a mystery, from what I've heard about it.

 

Hope that helps!

I never read The Woman in White either, but I sure wouldn't call Crime and Punishment a mystery. I mean, it's totally clear whodunnit and why and the murder case isn't the focus of the story. Frankly, I hated that book. I mean, I get why it's a classic and why the author is famous and all that, but I would never voluntarily read it again. Blech.

I read and loved both.

On balance, I'd probably stick with Dostoevsky.
