(P)2008 Roberson Audio
I focus on fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, science, history, politics and read a lot. I try to review everything I read.
I really love Chekhov but horrific narration and poor sound quality renders this almost un-listenable. The narration itself is slow and stilted. There is background echo and an annoying hiss. Finally these are two Chekhov stories that are not his best. All together you couldn't pay me to listen to these again. Even for 63 cents this is not worth it. So far everything I have heard from Roberson Audio Publications has very poor overall quality.
The acting in this was wonderful, the narrator doesn't just read he acts.
The young man, that is in love with this married woman.
You really feel for all the characters in the book. The younger women married to the older man, the young man who loves her. It is a story that still rings true today.
I like Mr. Cawthorne's British accent I feel it gives a more authentic feel to Chekkov.
