I read this alongside Ronald Hingley's translation of Uncle Vanya. Surprisingly, Hingley's version did not flow as well. I have no idea if Hingley's it was truer to Chekhov's original wording, but this freebie kindle version was certainly the more pleasing read.
For anyone looking to start reading Chekhov, I would recommend reading this. It is one of his better known plays, and the translation reads well.
