    "Superb"
    If you could sum up The Seagull in three words, what would they be?

    Understanding, heartbreak, laughter.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Seagull?

    The beginning, the middle and of course the end.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I couldn't have imagined better players.


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

    Chekhov's drama can twist a knife into your heart and then leave you in laughter seconds later. Pure genius.


    Any additional comments?

    If you love plays you will know this one, however it is still great to listen to.
    Well played!
