    " Having read many books written by Russian authors, the translation to English was done very well by Herman Bernstein. I was able to read this story in an afternoon, completely engrossed throughout. "

    " My two stars go against the choppy, dated, and unnatural sounding translation from 1909 . It must be something else in the language of the original or, granted, some of the numerous more-modern renditions. "

    " Very well written, but not to what I believe could be Andreyev's full potential. "

    " "The Red Laugh" was AMAZING, or at least the second half was. "Ben Tobit" and "Lazarus" are also two of the stories here that stood out for me. "
