    "Chekhov is probably better known in Britain for his plays than for his prose. For many, however, it is his short stories that mark the high water of his genius. It might at first glance be hard for those not used to his style of narrative to see what the fuss is about - and fuss there is: for most authors and lovers of literature Chekhov is incomparably the greatest short story writer there ever was."

    Tad Davis says: "Good intro to Chekhov"
    "Mr Fry is just the man to do this."
    Overall

    First, let me commend Stephen Fry. His voice is easy to listen to, clear,
    has a pleasant tone, and he pronounces Russian names well. He's a talented
    actor and he brings the text alive, speaking the dialogue in the voice of each
    character and the narration with a smoothe but not slick authority. He's a delight to listen to.

    Secondly, this is a nice selection of Checkhov's work.These stories are funny, moving and true to life. Previously I've only read Cehckhov, hearing it enhances the experience considerably.

    Recommended with the highest enthusiasm.
