A Nervous Breakdown

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I recently saw my first Chekhov play, Uncle Vanya, just before the lockdown. And seeing the masterly crafted sadness there, I was not surprised that the stories included in A Nervous Breakdown would also focus for a large part on mental health/happiness.

Especially the first two stories, A Nervous Breakdown and The Black Monk were very interesting, although I did think that the main character in A Nervous Breakdown, breaks down into the aforementioned breakdown rather quickly. The final story, about a young woman who finds out she shouldn’t have married just for money, was maybe slightly less interesting but still a short and nice read.
