5.0 out of 5 stars Good value text
This is a well produced text of these stories, varied in nature and typical of the author, at a very reasonable price. Recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Contes du jour et de la nuit. Guy de Maupassant
Nice little tales, but the vocabulary is a bit antiquated making some parts a bit difficult to understand. Stories are a nice length with some interesting twists.

5.0 out of 5 stars The short story par excellence, 12 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
From a hilarious opening story about a postman who gets more than he bargained for when he hears sounds of a struggle on his route to a heartbreaking tale of a lost necklace - Maupassant and Chekhov both share the gift of being able to create time, place and a flashbang of profound emotion in a few scant pages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and rich short stories, 24 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This (e)book is made of short stories. Some are light hearted and some are harsh (thus probably the title day and night). The author has an unforgiving style and doesn't care about happy endings. His description of characters and their mind is given in a realistic way, without beautiful hero, without soothing unfairness. But he has this amazing ability to take your hand, guide you to their soul and follow their journey. It was written around 1880 so there are some words difficult to understand, especially like clothes description, but feelings and thoughts haven't evolved so much!
