    " The performance is well-done and the story is amusing. It's a typical Chekhov story and the narrators capture the spirit of the story in a way that upholds the story without falling into ridicule, which so often happens. I do recommend this brief audiobook. "

About the Author
Author Anton Chekhov

Anton Chekhov (1860–1904), the author of hundreds of short stories and several plays, is regarded by many as both the greatest Russian storyteller and the father of modern drama. He described the Russian life of his time using a deceptively simple technique devoid of obtrusive literary devices, thereby becoming the prominent representative of the late nineteenth-century Russian realist school. His early stream-of-consciousness style strongly influenced the literary world, including writers such as James Joyce.
