    Whatever NPR's opinion was at the time. He's not paying attention to the book anyway.

      I never truly liked Brian despite most Family Guy fanatics loving him. His replacement sucked too. I guess he’s a necessary evil.

    Does it say Dogstovesky on the cover? If so, does McFarlene have an original joke outside of his cringe reference humour no one who wasn't interested/born in 90s/00s pop culture would understand?

          As in, if that was the case, this was the joke he would've stolen it from

      It's the least blatantly anti-white cartoon out there right now, for what that's worth.

    Brian's worst qualities weren't really established until later seasons, like his atheism or pseudo-intellectualism. At this point, he's probably just reading it to pass time and probably enjoys Dosto but doesn't have a strong opinion.

    Early season Brian would have a decent opinion on it. Seeing the flaws in Dostoevsky's aesthetic style, but at the same time, praising the ideas of paranoia and nihilism (albeit, at a cool third year literature university level). He also wouldn't be snooty or pretentious about it.

    Brian now would just quote wikipedia, wrong I might add, and then there would be a cut away to Conway Twitty because Family Guy is just a parody of itself now.

    If you are alluding to Dostoevsky’s worst novels, then, indeed, I dislike intensely The Brothers Karamazov and the ghastly crime and Punishment rigamarole. No, I do not object to soul-searching and self-revelation, but in those books the soul, and the sins, and the sentimentality, and the journalese, hardly warrant the tedious and muddled search. Dostoyevsky’s lack of taste, his monotonous dealings with persons suffering with pre-Freudian complexes, the way he has of wallowing in the tragic misadventures of human dignity – all this is difficult to admire. I do not like this trick his characters have of ”sinning their way to Jesus” or, as a Russian author, Ivan Bunin, put it more bluntly, ”spilling Jesus all over the place." Crime and Punishment’s plot did not seem as incredibly banal in 1866 when the book was written as it does now when noble prostitutes are apt to be received a little cynically by experienced readers. Dostoyevsky never really got over the influence which the European mystery novel and the sentimental novel made upon him. The sentimental influence implied that kind of conflict he liked—placing virtuous people in pathetic situations and then extracting from these situations the last ounce of pathos. Non-Russian readers do not realize two things: that not all Russians love Dostoevsky as much as Americans do, and that most of those Russians who do, venerate him as a mystic and not as an artist. He was a prophet, a claptrap journalist and a slapdash comedian. I admit that some of his scenes, some of his tremendous farcical rows are extraordinarily amusing. But his sensitive murderers and soulful prostitutes are not to be endured for one moment—by this reader anyway. Dostoyevsky seems to have been chosen by the destiny of Russian letters to become Russia’s greatest playwright, but he took the wrong turning and wrote novels.
