Prostitute? What the heck? I didn't think Sonia was a prostitute; I thought it was just a vicious rumor about her. —D Simon

Zephid: No, she's definitely a prostitute. Marmeladov says so near the beginning.

Also, I'm going to go ahead and edit the article to say this is his most famous novel, since I think most people have heard about Crime And Punishment more than The Brothers Karamazov.
Zephid: I don't think this is a Bittersweet Ending, but more of a Earn Your Happy Ending. The epilogue is decidedly upbeat for Raskolnikov's future.
