I know what I'm setting up here, but it's got to be said.

Someone really needs to take Dostoevsky's "The Idiot" and rename the characters. I could easily follow the lives of Bob, Harry and Trevor as they traipsed around the Russian countryside courting Megan and Tracey. These patrinomic names are killing me! And where is it written that they have to stay Lyov and Nastasya? I mean they already translated it to English and they changed the names of the towns *g*

This site might help. Save me flipping back trying to figure out which nickname is for which character. I really don't know why I'm having such a hard time with these characters, but it's really ticking me off. Is it that I'm not that into the book, or is it that I can't get that into it because I can't keep the characters straight? Is it because I read the first 200 pages 2 years ago?
