Review of Poor Folk by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Poor Folk - Fyodor Dostoyevsky

I decided I am lacking in my classic literature and will try to read all of Dostoyevsky.  I will take my time with it, but will go in chronological order using the years his novels and novellas were published.  This first novella was outstanding.  It was a story told through a series of letters between a man and woman who love each other, but both are struggling through lives of poverty in St. Petersburg.  Dostoyevsky seems to be great at examining feelings and while the story itself is not really a page-turner, the writing is wonderful and I couldn't help but feel like I gained a real understanding of what it would have been like to be those characters or a person in their situation.  I look forward to the next one.

Alas, Poor Darwin
Alas, Poor Darwin: Arguments Against Evolutionary Psychology - Hilary Rose,Steven Rose

I didn't really do my homework before picking up this book, so it really wasn't what I was expecting. Rather than offer a coherent argument throughout the book by a pair of authors, it's a collection of essays, each written by a different author, that refute various aspects of evolutionary psychology. I'll admit I skimmed significant chunks of it and skipped the rest of a chapter entirely when the author brought up some absolutely nonsense graphs. There were still a few interesting tidbits, which is why I'm being generous with the two stars, but it's really best to be avoided.

Poor Man's Fight
Poor Man's Fight - Elliott Kay Poor Man's Fight - Elliott Kay One of the most entertaining and fun books I have ever read. This just set a new bar for me in the military sc-fi genre and I have three more books in this series already cued up.

Ho hum
Lady Fortescue Steps Out: The Poor Relation, Book 1 - M.C. Beaton,Davina Porter

I bought it because it was on sale and because it was written by M.C. Beaton but as far as reading Regency romances, I think I will stick with Georgette Heyer.

 

Three stars
