    I was a bit disappointed after finishing The People s Act of Love Don t get me wrong, this is certainly a book worth reading Meek knows his Russian Lit In particular Dostoevsky Structurally the novel hurtles along like all great Dostoevsky novels from one revelation to another, with occasional stock gathering, as a character stops to offer up some existential musing or another All the characters are Dostoevsky weird, and some of the dramatic set pieces are first rate My favorite momen I was a bit disappointed after finishing The People s Act of Love Don t get me wrong, this is certainly a book worth reading Meek knows his Russian Lit In particular Dostoevsky Structurally the novel hurtles along like all great Dostoevsky novels from one revelation to another, with occasional stock gathering, as a character stops to offer up some existential musing or another All the characters are Dostoevsky weird, and some of the dramatic set pieces ...
