Audible Editor Reviews

From Man Ray to Mapplethorpe, Lady Chatterley to Lady Gaga, a key hallmark of art has always been its propensity for shock value - its seemingly timeless tendency to incense and outrage audiences’ sensibilities. Russian short story master Anton Chekov takes on art’s controversial character in this farcical tale of a small candelabra that no one seems to want. In a scant 10 minutes, sprightly performer Walter Zimmerman single-handedly brings to life a small town’s worth of unique characters, with their affected foibles and self-satisfying morals. Zimmerman’s knack for voice acting plays perfectly with this dialogue-driven satire.

A young man gives a present of "a work of art", or so he thinks, with very interesting consequences. This is one of Chekov's most humorous stories.

    I focus on fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, science, history, politics and read a lot. I try to review everything I read.

    "A Nice Little Funny Story"

    This is far from a great Chekov story, but it is funny (even though you see it coming) and the narration is solid if not great. Definitely not worth a full credit, but for the one buck cash price, I enjoyed it.
