(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.
These are two very good Chekhov short stories with acceptable narration. Both of these are wonderful examples of Chekhov shorts. They both show dramatic character change through internal dialog. The only downside is the narration, which is better than most of the Roberson Audio Publications titles I have listened to, but it is still not great narration. At just 63 cents this was definitely worth it (don’t use a full credit), but these stories deserve a better presentation.
For those who love Czekhov's this is one of his best work and this is a very good version of that work.
The mystery veiled in the different rooms, as the hero searching for the woman whom he thinks he loves and the woman who he thinks loves him.
Wonderful as useually, he is an actor more than a narrator.
The is a sad humour to the story. One neither laughs or cries however one does get caught up in the irony.
Nicely put together for the price.
I don't usually rush out for all the "best sellers", but give each intriguing book/author a look. I have found many diamonds in the rough.
These stories had a beginning a middle and no end. Both main characters had defeatist attitudes, not something I'm very fond of.
