The Idiot by Dostoyevsky Is Indeed Idiotic

I am not enjoyng Dostoyevsky's The Idiot. It was okay in the beginning, but ever since Hippolite showed up . . . I hate Hippolite. I think Hippolite is the real idiot of the book, not Prince Myshkin. Stupid 18-year-old boy who does absolutely nothing but threaten to kill himself all day long day after day. I wish he'd hurry up and succeed at it.

This is the first time in quite a while that I've been so severely bored by a book that I can barely even force myself to turn the pages.
