1.0 out of 5 stars Great content; abysmal formatting March 8, 2013
By Shaft

Anton Chekhov is one of the greatest short story writers in history. Period. For the content alone, this rates 5/5.

As with Volume I of this edition the formatting of this ebook is horrible to the point of being unreadable. Only when I had manually edited this volume with a free ebook editor program called Sigil, was I able to properly enjoy it (and it took some considerable time, since it's a hefty collection).

Another note: Volume II of this collection features some duplicate stories included in Volume I. Not only that, but Volume II has duplicates in itself (for example, the story "In Exile" appears twice in Volume II which can be clearly seen in the TOC, as well as once in Volume I). So, all in all, a very poor editing effort from the publisher.

A comprehensive collection of stories by one of the world's greatest ever short story writing -- ad at a great price. Everyone should have a copy on their reading pad.

I believe Chekhov to be the most wonderful short story writer of all time. There is nobody like him who can describe the human condition as it really is in such a concise manner.
