Sobre o autor

Anton Chekhov was born in Taganrog, in southern Russia, and in his youth paid for his own education and supported his entire family by writing short, satirical sketches of Russian life. Though he eventually became a physician and once considered medicine his principal career, he continued to gain popularity and praise as a writer for various Russian newspapers, eventually authoring more literary work and ultimately his most well-known plays, including Ivanov, The Seagull, and Uncle Vanya. He died of tuberculosis in 1904, and is regarded as one of the best short story writers in history, influencing such authors as Ernest Hemingway, Vladimir Nabokov, and Raymond Carver.

  • (3/5)
    Boring at times, piquant at others.
  • (3/5)
    Fry is always a complete joy to have as a narrator, the stories are about life, some more interesting than others as you could expect from some short peaks into well... life. There is among them a story titled "Misery" about a carriage driver which in it's short delivery has one of the most realistic depictions of grief I have heard or seen.
  • (5/5)
    Beautiful stories read by the best reader. One remark: however edited this should leave more than 1/2 second between the stories. It really spoils the enjoyment.
  • (5/5)
    if every audio book was read by Stephen Fry I would be happy. He reads with just enough emphasis to bring the stories to life without overdoing it.
  • (5/5)
    As someone who has never read or listened to anything by Chekhov before, this was a wonderful introduction. Stephen Fry is a wonderful narrator, and the stories go between darkly funny and genuinely heartbreaking.
  • (5/5)
    Charming tales expertly read.
    Only a shame Scribd doesn’t allow for pauses between chapters

    These are slice of life stories, they aren’t complete tales, they don’t always have obvious points, beginnings or endings. Many times it feels like you’ve just read a chapter from another book. They’re not happy stories for the most part and aren’t going to leave a smile on your face. But they’re really, really good. Simple, direct, and straight to the heart of the characters, the people of Russia of 100 years ago.

    Now I need to find more.

    Wonderful reading of Chekhov's short stories. I was equally amused and moved by Mr Fry's interpretation, I highly recommend this book.

    it is a great to listen to for a quick and short entertaining read. the narrator's voice is engaging and let you be, virtually, inside the events of the srory.
