Fyodor Dostoevsky—just saying his name makes me feel smarter. I admit, I knew nothing about him before reading Fyodor Dostoevsky by Peter Leithart, one of the latest in the Christian Encounters series. All I knew was that he was a famous Russian writer whom I associated with intellectuals. I would have loved to be able to quote Dostoevsky in conversation, just to sound smarter. So when his biography became available on Booksneeze.com, I was excited. I could order a free copy of the book in exchange for posting an honest review after I had read it. Win-win! I have to say, I’m so glad I did!
