This review is from: The Essential Tales of Chekhov (Paperback)
First time I have read Chekhov - was recommended as one of best reads to do before well you know one of those! Bit strange at first but on a re-read it was what everyone says he is. These are so simple but as you read you realise you are a human with all that human beings are: jealous, angry, bitter, sad, lonely, frustrated. Chekhov manages to convey these emotions without using words. If you are confused about life, mixed up and need explanation then don't bother paying for costly listening, paraphrasing people, just read this. If you are human, look beyond the print and accept that this is what you are. Everyone should be given a copy, preferably at birth.
