  1. PrefaceIn this little book, based on a serious hunger spreading in a village of peasants in Russia, Chekhov addresses a failed marriage, its causes and effects.Pavel Andreievich, a senior Russian official retired, knowing from this crisis near the area where they live, decides to take charge to help these poor peasants For that attempts to create a kind of commission between the rich and powerful of the area to solve this problem.When he begins to coordinate the actions, he discovers that his wi [...]


  2. This has been on my Currently Reading shelf for 6 weeks, but, trust me, that isn t because I didn t care for it I read a story or two and then read a novel, and then read a story, and then read a novel.Chekhov is full of irony, but not twist endings The stories are largely characterizations devoid of action Each choice we make in life has a cost In A Dreary Story, perhaps the longest of the stories, a man has worked hard in his profession and become quite respected in the larger world But what o [...]


  3. Bem, este foi mais que r pido a ser lido Outra coisa n o seria de esperar, dado o reduzido n mero de p ginas que o comp em Primeiro livro de Anton Tchekov que leio e posso dizer que n o fugiu ao que eu estava espera escrita, hist ria e personagens t picas da literatura, russa e n o s , do s culo XIX Eu at gosto desta poca liter ria, mas este livro t o pequenino que soube me a pouco.Pavel Anndreievitch vive na sua casa de campo, com Nat lia Gavrilovna, sua mulher Cada um vive numa parte da casa, [...]


  4. Translated by Constance Garnett, this collection by Anton Chekhov consists of nine stories The Wife, Difficult People, The Grasshopper, A Dreary Story, The Privy Councillor, The Man in a Case, Gooseberries, About Love and The Lottery Ticket In one, a dying man much esteemed, much feted dwells on his life and tries to make sense of both the past and whatever future is left to him In another, a beautiful and vivacious woman marries a quiet, sedate man with whom she is happy for a while, until a e [...]


  5. Love, marry, do silly things Foolishness is a great deal vital and healthy than our straining and striving after a meaningful life Chekhov has always attracted me with his non judgmental, cold observation of life around him I feel that he considered everyone around him to be eternal children He does not chide them for their mistakes instead he looks at them with a great deal of understanding.Reading his works, I feel that Chekhov understood humanity, understood something about life that I would [...]


  6. I have been wanting to start reading Chekhov short stories for quite some time I was finally prompted to start when Francine Prose, in her excellent book Reading Like a Writer, said that Chekhov s short stories were her favorite and that all aspiring writers should read them She talked a lot about his stories, especially about their well crafted language, character descriptions, and how they broke common rules.Maybe my expectations were too high, but I was a little disappointed I do admire Chekh [...]


  7. The perfection of The Man in the Case Gooseberries About Love has actively harmed me with its probing, relentless beauty and sadness This is dumb to write Everything I have to say is embarrassingly earnest and already well known Chekhov is good, I guess, to me Reality irritated him, frightened him, kept him in continual agitation, and, perhaps to justify his timidity, his aversion for the actual, he always praised the past and what had never existed and even the classical languages which he taug [...]


  8. Great short stories from a hundred or so years ago My favorite Hmmm either The Lottery Ticket which I m sure I must have read before, without remembering it , Gooseberries , or The Wife It took me a while to get through these, but I m glad I read them I guess I ll have to read Chekhov.



  9. I think I liked About Love and the title story the best, but I suspect I may be of a Bulgakov gal.


  10. Nice readSome of the stories are nice Simple language There is a dry humor in the tone So a nice one time read.


  11. I ve been slowly working my way through the thirteen volume Tales of Chekhov I exchanged for store credit when I worked as a used bookstore clerk Some years I read one or two volumes, other years I revisit favorite stories This is volume 5 and, yet again, I find myself in awe as an aspiring writer and, as a reader, deeply moved by these insightful summations of people in a variety of situations.A observations about the stories in this volume the title story of a novella, really is fascinating i [...]


  12. N o fazia intens o de ler este livro pois a hist ria principal n o me chamou aten o, at o encontrar a 1 na Book e lhe dar uma chance.A minha mulherTchekhov escreve muito bem mas esta narrativa n o me conquistou No in cio muito lenta, e de um momento para o outro chegamos ao fim, sem percebermos bem a intens o da hist ria O tema central da hist ria tamb m n o me cativou, mas penso que poder dizer algo mais a outros leitores.Pontua o 3 5Um Caso M dicoO mesmo aconteceu com este conto, muito se cont [...]


  13. Polvilhado de um certo humor negro E muito desalento Desalento pela vida e uma falta de interesse que se revela a salva o, ou ser apenas a sobreviv ncia V o l descobrir, pequenino e l se de uma assentada.


  14. My first ever book by Chekov The stories are simple and talk about simple people, their struggles and real emotions There s no lofty ideal and no unnecessary romanticization, just the true feelings and situations of some real people.


  15. A book one should read if one wishes to understand the Russian society during the times of Anton Chekov s era.Don t expect anything special in the stories Most of it reflects how males ruled roost, possibly still do, in Russia.


  16. Mais um escritor russo nesta colec o que estou a ler, desta vez Anton Tchekov O livro conta nos a hist ria de um homem casado e a rela o deste com a sua mulher Uma rela o fria, uma rela o practicamente inexistente, devido ao feitio de ambos De certa forma o livro at foi bom e gostei dele.


  17. Really liked Chekhov s ability to psychologically sketch a character using dialogue The Wife was the only happy ish ending though in the sense that the protagonist comes to recognise himself and change the other stories are without fail depressing.
