Now I'm curious to read the P&V notes in Notes.

I think that they're worth reading. They provide a lot of the background literature, such as Chernyshevsky's "What Is To Be Done?" and the general socialist utopian viewpoints that were being written about, that Dostoevsky was reacting to when he wrote Notes.
