Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon :: Hours 7 - 9

For hours 7 through 9 I continued to read the same two books: Crime and Punishment and Sanctuary. In Crime and Punishment I've managed into Part V of the book. I must say that the book has really started to pick up: the intensity between Sonia and Raskolnikov; the drama of Porfiry Petrovich's pursuit of Raskolnikov as the murderer; as well as the breakup of the marriage between Pyotr Petrovich and Raskolnikov's sister. In Sanctuary I read the short story "The Face of Chaos" by Lynn Abbey. It was a story about the gods and fate that I didn't find as engaging as John Brunner's "Sentences of Death." Next up in Sanctuary is Poul Anderson's "The Gate of Flying Knives." That sounds exciting doesn't it?
