Reading Karamazov in a train full of children is surprisingly easy, and I've deducted two reasons for this:
- Kids have smartphones and tablets and whatnots nowadays to keep them obedient, occupied, and silent.
- I was reading the part where Mitya rushes manically to win Grushenka back with champagne and treats just before the cops show up about the suspected patricide, which was quite captivating.
Speaking of trains, I almost didn't buy a ticket after seeing how full the train was. Apparently, I'm too good for crowded public transport like that. Then I realized that hesitating to do it was exactly the reason I had to do it.
Also also, Fyodor has finally died! The story moves forward at last!
