An intriguing book which is strangely compelling. The author is obsessed with another writer - Dostoyevsky. On a train journey across Russia to Leningrad he reads a journal which gives an insight into the life and marriage of Dostoyevsky who travelled with his wife to Baden-Baden in the 1870s. If you'd welcome the chance to share in this fascinating journey then climb on board and let the book pull you into their story. Allow plenty of time to wallow in its long descriptive passages - perfect to reflect the intensity of the tormented hero.
