5.0 out of 5 stars Chekov short novels, 4 Aug 2010

This review is from: The Complete Short Novels (Everyman's Library Classics) (Hardcover)
An Everyman classic publication so it's a visual joy before delving into the stories.
The English translation is so good that you really feel you are involved in Russian life. Wonderful stories evocative of the time they were written but still relevant today. Anguish, poverty, passion, humour, frustration and the foibles of society are superbly portrayed

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, 6 May 2013

This review is from: The Complete Short Novels (Everyman's Library Classics) (Hardcover)
My opinion regarding Chekhov is filled with bias. He is superb and limitless in scope and breadth. His dominion os the free indirect style is masterful and, aside from Flaubert, none of his era that I know of can match.

The translation is perfect - a balance between the original Russian and maintaining coherence and beauty in English.

The quality of the paper and binding is good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Provincial Life, 17 Mar 2014

This review is from: The Complete Short Novels (Everyman's Library Classics) (Hardcover)
I was encouraged to buy this book when I read that William Boyd, one of my favourite modern novelists, thought that My Life is one of his favourite novels. Having now read it in this collection of short novels, or long short stories, by Chekhov I can see why. The Everyman edition is a first class production in every way. A book to treasure.

Wonderfully put together book, beautiful hardback that is as aesthetically pleasing as it is a fantastic introduction to Chekhov and his works!
