    Anton Chekhov's life was short, intense, and dominated by battles, both with his dependents and with the tuberculosis that was to kill him at age 44. He was one of the greatest playwrights and short-story writers ever born, but he was torn between medicine and literature, as he was between family and friends, between a longing for solitude and a need for company.

    Overall

    This is by far the most tedious book I have ever listened to. I will stick it out until the end because some of these very descriptive, tiny details about Chekhov and Russian culture/history are interesing. I am not a stranger to long listens...but this one will test your patience and concentration skills.
