Zergneedsfood was an avid but underdeveloped wordmuncher. Vacillating between here and there, he would read classics by day and light novel come night. Visual novel plays, holy bibles, factoids, papers, and reviews too. Anything but everything!
Yet there came a day when our dearest Zerg did stumble upon a treasure trove. A juicy pile of mighty high culinary delights. One meal would send his wavering spirit free!

Now must his journey begin. Will you not pick for him, a new adventure! Which path should our Zerg now take as he walks on off away from lowly pleasures.




tl;dr vote for his freedom, power, and glory.

I found a collection of all of his books so it sorted itself out.

Have you read it? If so, what did you think?

The Idiot of course, what's more enlightened than Dostoevsky? Saramago is great, I have the pdf as well (only in portuguese). I don't think they're very popular outside Portugal/Brasil.

Most of the books I've read recently are Russian so not sure if I want to read another long Russian text since they're relatively draining. Might ignore that and just do it though since I haven't touched Dostoevsky in a year.

I love Saramago and another author I haven't read in a year.

The Idiot is great, though my least favourite out of the five elephants.

Recently they published a ''new'' Dostoevsky book here in Brasil. I'm currently reading, it calls The Adolescent; really powerful. God, I'm being drowned by it.

That's been out for a while....hasn't it? Or is it just a new Portuguese translation that hadn't been done before?

Yea you can delete it. I've since read quite a few of the books on this list and have a general idea what's the order for the remaining so no more help is required in deciding a book to read.
