How not to impress literary types #13

On Dostoevksy’s Crime and Punishment: “Yeah you know how there are those two guys whose names both start with R? And the way that their names are a teensy bit similar and sort of ridiculously difficult to pronounce, while both characters are completely key to the storyline? Yeah, I actually thought they were THE SAME PERSON until, like, page 150. True story.”
