5.0 out of 5 stars Text of Uncle Vanya play 11 Nov 2011
By ChrisGe
Format:Paperback
This edition is exactly what I was looking for: the complete text, very clear, with a very good introduction, and translated into 'modern' English. For the price it's a very good buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Checkov at his best 20 Aug 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have read many versions of Uncle Vanya, but this edition is an up-beat, funny, and, ultimately wonderful version of the excellent story by one of Russias beloved writers. I was looking for the right edition to use in my school for the school play, and this edition the kids could connect to. It dosen't have a lot of that Shakespere mumbo-jumbo that you have to read 50 times. This is accesible and very good. rock on David Mamet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sad like a ticking clock 13 Jan 2014
By Anna Sharapova - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Have you ever been lonely, and alone, in a room where a clock is loudly ticking? You feel empty inside, hoping yet knowing your hope is unjustified. All you hear is the ticking clock. And yet you will go on, you will rise every morning, live, struggle, dream. But still you feel empty, and you know that nothing and no one can change it. That is Uncle Vanya. It is beautiful and sad, and it shows the frailty of the human soul, its hunger for fulfillment, its sad realization that, in the end, there is only the relentless and cold march of time.

Truly, one of the greatest masterpieces in all of world literature.

4.0 out of 5 stars Appealing 5 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
In a world full of whining and complaining about insignificant things, it's fun to once again admire Anton Chekhov and his ability to make this seem imperative to human life. While in the setting of Russian gentry, everything as falling apart, and the lives of the characters are no more gratifying than anyone else's.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most thought provoking and beautiful plays 11 May 2004
By Vladimir Miletic - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
"Uncle Vanya" is a beautiful play. I've read it many times in several languages and always enjoyed it very much. Don't read it unless you have attention span greater than that of a child. It's rewarding if you give it a chance. This is Chekhov's best play.

5.0 out of 5 stars engaging 17 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I enjoyed reading Uncle Vanya. It delves into the lives of everyday normal people and their hopes and disillusionments of life. It is about self-realization and not getting what you want. A great play.
