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

    "Great Stories with Acceptable Narration"

    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.

    Story
    "A czekhov classic love it"
    Where does 'The Kiss' and 'The Problem' rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    For those who love Czekhov's this is one of his best work and this is a very good version of that work.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of 'The Kiss' and 'The Problem'?

    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.


    What about John William Cawthorne’s performance did you like?

    Wonderful as useually, he is an actor more than a narrator.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The is a sad humour to the story. One neither laughs or cries however one does get caught up in the irony.


    Any additional comments?

    Nicely put together for the price.

    "Not my favorite Chek"
    Any additional comments?

    These stories had a beginning a middle and no end. Both main characters had defeatist attitudes, not something I'm very fond of.
