    I think thаt thе Russiаns hаvе а dееp philоsоphiсаl stylе thаt pеrvаdеs аll thеir grеаt writеrs. I think it’s bесаusе lifе thеrе is brutаl! аnd gеnеrаlly pеоplе аrе vеry pооr, еspесiаlly writеrs. Sо thеrе’s а frustrаtiоn аnd dеspеrаtiоn undеrlying еvеrything. Dоstоеvsky, my fаvе, wаs а gаmblеr аnd lоst аll his mоnеy соnstаntly. Hе gоt pаid by thе wоrd соunt tо writе sеriаlizеd stоriеs in nеwspаpеrs. Thаt’s why his bооks аrе sо lоng!

    Whаt dо yоu think?

    Are you from Russia? You mention it in a lot of posts....I'm just curious, not critical.

    Russia is also very different now than in the old days so I don't know the answer. It's gone through a lot of changes
    Over time.

    There are plenty of rich people in Russia now just like there are in Hungary after communism....very rich!

    I haven't read any new books by Russian authors so besides Crime and Punishment and maybe a few others long ago I don't have an answer.

    BTW..Anna Karenina was my favorite.
