The Duel

Gelesen von Phil Griffiths

(4,346 Sterne; 26 Bewertungen)

The plot centres around Laevsky, who is living in a small seaside town in the Caucasus after running away with another man's wife, Nadyezhda Fyodorovna, amid dreams of starting a new life.

The dreams have come to nothing as Laevsky idles away his life drinking and playing cards, and Nadyezhda begins to have other affairs. Laevsky's scheme to run away again, this time without his mistress, brings him into conflict with the rationalist Von Koren, who believes in Darwinian principles of natural selection and extinction of the weak and useless.

Matters come to a head when an outburst from Laevsky leads to a duel. Von Koren is determined to teach Laevksy a lesson. (Introduction by Phil) (5 hr 13 min)

Reader Is Terrific!

(5 Sterne)

Story is fabulous, reader Phil Griffiths is too.

Great Story, terrible reader

(3 Sterne)

Decided to listen after recently watching the film. The story is full of deception and scandalous content. I fully recomend reading the translated version instead of listening to this audio, since the reader does NOT do Chekhov's wonderfully in depth characters justice. His voice put me to sleep despite the incredible action that is sure to delight the READER, not the listener. Not to this.
