Not sure if you’ve ever read Russian literature (I know I avoided it in high school). But, if you haven’t it is something unique. In Notes From Underground, Fyodor Dostoevsky shows how someone paves the road to hell for himself by how they think and act. So, in today’s episode, we’ll take a look into the psyche of a man on that path to learn from his mistakes. Buy your Copy of Notes from Underground here.
Where’s the Road to Hell?
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn says “The battleline between good and evil runs through the heart of every man,” however, he doesn’t mention where Heaven and Hell are found. By following the character in Notes From Underground, you will see how one takes the road to Hell. The battle between good and evil may run through every heart, but the battle between Heaven and Hell happens in every action we take. In this book, you’ll follow the thoughts and actions of a man on the road to hell. If you’d like to read it, you can grab your copy here.

Why you should read Notes From Underground
“The greatest happiness is to know the source of unhappiness.”–Fyodor Dostoevsky
The reason you should read this book is to learn the source of your unhappiness, which is most likely you. While reading this work, you’ll see how much you get in the way of your own happiness. Like I said above, we find Hell by choosing it daily. Unlike this world, the places we end up in the next are choices we make based on how we live. But, those things can come to be in this world. So, will you choose the road to hell or the Road to Heaven?
