(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.
This is one of my many favorite Chekhov stories, but the narration and audio were distracting. The narrator enunciates to a fault and speaks quite formally for a short story of this kind. There is also a modest echo plus a minor hiss. I still enjoyed the story, which is a fine representative of Chekhov’s best works. The characters, internal dialog, dynamical private thoughts, all set at a party, is great Chekhov. The narration must be why this is priced at 63 cents, it is definitely not worth a credit. I will look for another version of this story on Audible.
