Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

This collection of three short stories was my introduction to Chekhov, and it failed to really sway me. The writing was good, if a bit depressing, but the stories failed to grab my full attention. I have to admit that the shorter the story, the less likely I am to like it. It is too short to put in all the elements I like to see in a story.

I have since seen a Chekhov play, which I enjoyed a lot more – although even that was rather depressing.
