Twelve Tales from Life's Passing Parade: Collected Chekhov | [Anton Chekhov]

Twelve Tales from Life's Passing Parade: Collected Chekhov

From the sublime to the ridiculous, Anton Chekhov saw it all. And he wrote about it as only a master storyteller can, capturing not only the nuances of human behavior, but also the motivations behind the behavior. Often, too, he found universal truths along the way. These stories cover a variety of themes, both comic and tragic, as his characters encounter religion, government bureaucracy, and each other. And although they were written long ago, they are still surprisingly fresh.

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

    "Great Chekhov Shorts Collection & Good Narration"

    This is a particularly good selection of Chekhov short stories with good narration. I really like Chekhov short stories, but many collections have several loser stories or have poor (to horrible) narration. Virtually every one of these sorties was good (some were great) and the narration, while not perfect, was quite good (a tiny bit nasal for my taste). So far, this is the best collection of Chekhov short stories I have listened to from Audible. Very well worth the three bucks (note at this price don’t use a full credit).
