Review: The Kiss, The Two Volodyas and Gooseberries by Anton Chekhov (Penguin Little Black Classic #34)
Gooseberries (Little Black Classics #34) - Anton Chekhov

Summary:

The Kiss is about hope in love etc. 

The Two Volodyas is about a woman who rethinks her marriage and feels she married him for money instead of love and goes kinda crazy.

Gooseberries is about finding happiness and about hope and freedom.

 

My opinion:

This is what I think every Little Black Classic should be like. I loved all of the stories and I cannot wait to read more by this author (which is also not good because now I want to buy more books ha). I can't see which one my favorite story is, but if I have to choose I'll choose Gooseberries, because it has not only Russian themes in it, but also themes that are still relevant today. If you want to buy a little black classic, i highly recommend this one.

 

Have you read anything by Anton Chekhov and if so what is your opinion about his work/any recommendations?

I'm joining the Dewey's 24 Hour read-a-thon! + tbr

So this is going to happen again! Usually I can't participate because of school or other things, but now I can.

It will take place in the April 23rd (as you can see), but it starts at a different timezone for everyone. I live in the Amsterdam timezone, which means I will be starting at 2pm (on Saturday). I will try to post an update each hour (try, not making a promise here and of course not when I'm sleeping). I'm going to post on my Twitter, so click here if you don't follow me already. These are the books I plan to read: 

I think it's manageable and quick reads (and not too challenging) so I really hope I can get to these. If you want to join as well you can follow the original Twitter account (klick here) for sprints and use the hashtag #readathon to chat along. 

 

Are you going to join and if so what's on your tbr?
