Timeless Short Story Pleasure,
This review is from: Lady with Lapdog and other Stories (Mass Market Paperback)
Chekhov writes in an honest style, writing about characters with faults whilst reserving judgement. This collection contains stories of irony and bad luck yet without diving too deep into the misery of the subjects. Each short story contains a unique set of characters that set the action of the story and Chekhov often objectifies them within the setting to cleverly represent their emotions none too obviously. A skilled set of tales that in their subject matter are timeless and will always be a pleasure to read.
