Translators make a big difference
What could Anton Chekhov have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Chekhov did great, it was the translator I don't like.
Any additional comments?
I wish I would have checked the listing on Amazon before purchasing because as I found out 1 minute in, its the Constance Garnet translation. Other translations are better, but publishers prefer Constance's because they are public domain, so they get it free, but still can charge us the same price.

Excellent intro to Chekhov
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
very much so
What did you like best about this story?
These 50+ stories are medium length and always delight
Which character – as performed by Anthony Heald – was your favorite?
Impossible to say, but I loved Heald's ability to give the different characters individual personalities. this really brings the stories to life.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I had an extreme reaction to the idiotic review of "Bathsheba Everdene". Shameful and pathetic that that one review was the only one appearing!! This is a high quality production and deserves better!!
