Notes from the Underground

Notes from the underground is the story of a grumpy old man as thinks and meanders around St. Petersburg. Actually, calling it a "story" is probably stretching things. There is not much of what you would call a plot. (Though there are a few "episodes" that follow some sort of structure.) The events happen, and you get a feel that this guy thinks about things a little too much. He has trouble living his life because he is constantly worried about some small perceived wrong. Then he looks for revenge, but is conscious of it, and usually ends up punishing only himself. It is not "action" centric, and takes some focus to really appreciate.
