Pillar of Russian literature though he may be, Dostoevsky‘s eponymous Moscow Metro station is not garnering rave reviews. Decorated with murals of the Crime and Punishment and Brothers Karamazov author, the station is being decried as “gloomy,” “depressing,” and responsible for a “negative energy” that some fear might cause people to throw themselves in front of the trains. Hey, it’s not a Tolstoy mural! And frankly, we find gruff, beardy Dostoevsky’s visage oddly soothing. It seems to us that criminals and sleazes will be less likely to try to mug or grope you under old Fyodor’s watchful stare.
