Plot: One part crime. Four parts punishment.

Crime and Punishment

Fyodor Dostoevsky, 1867
Famous for: Very little crime but a whole lotta punishment.

The plot of Crime and Punishment is fairly straightforward. Dostoevsky’s book is 1/5 about crime—plotting a crime, committing a crime—and 4/5 about the effects of a criminal act on the human psyche, including guilt, paranoia, and quite a bit of egomania. 60second Recap® has more on the details of Crime and Punishment’s plot when you press play.
