Anton Chekhov, perhaps better known as a world famous classical playwright for works such as "Uncle Vanya" and "The Cherry Orchard" was also a prolific short story writer. "The Schoolmaster and Other Stories" is one of several of his collections. It's a compilation of 30 short stories. Some bizarre, some comical but all very interesting.

Gems


(4 stars)

Most are very small bits of human behavior often very foolish ones. This . The first volume of stories seemed more significant to me, but this certainly added to my interest in the author, whom I hadn't read before. Reader was satisfactory and I thank him.

Unique stories


(5 stars)

Well read, thank you. This collection has led me to download other stories but Anton Checkov. Unique studies of short interactions of human life & the ironic twists & pain of being human.

I loved it, except why do the short stories stop? I have to open the app up again. Otherwise love it.
