Dostoevsky's minor, even peripheral characters...

...go into me deeper than his major ones (with the exception of Stepan Trofimovich Verkhovensky in The Demons). I haven't yet figured out how to explain this inversion to myself. 

But...Tolstoy's major characters entrance me, compel my total concentration.
