As for Katyusha she is difficult to ead, she does n't eally care for her own injustices anymore and tends to use Nekhlyudov for the benefit of other inmates, spending time locked up has clearly effected her mind and the Prince see 's a completely changed person from the one that he nce love.

This book is actuall a critique of both organized religion and the hardships of criminal law and justice.

It is tale of Nekhlyudov 's search for redemption from his past, his awaking to the reality of how he state and its bureaucracy crushes both the innocent and the poor, and th philosophical examination of how the fundamental 's of Christianity are often overlooked by the State ( and organized religion) when people lose sight of the very basic idea of loving other people.
