The Wife

Written by:
Anton Chekhov
Narrated by:
Michael Scott

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date
January 2006
1 hour 50 minutes
In this classic short story, Chekhov takes a snapshot of the Russian life, illuminating the harsh complexities and yet subtle simplicities that interact seamlessly together. The cold and gloom of the Russian environment cannot compare to the relationship that Pavel Andreitch, a rich aristocratic, has with his wife, who is no longer in love, or even tolerant of her husband, although helplessly reliant on his financial support. Their disintegrating relationship is set to the backdrop of the starving peasants of the lower classes, illuminating the perennial tension of an egotistical, self-centered man and the struggling goodness of a woman who cares about more than just herself.

I quite enjoyed the book, it was a pity it didn't have a different reader though. Terrible - every sentance sounds like one of those corny movie announcements, 'Coming soon, to theaters near you' in the Spooky, gravely voice... And seriously, if you're going to try read sentences in French, isn't it an idea to get just a modicum of understanding of how to pronounce French words??!! Ridiculous, Provincial - look for the book read by someone else, is my advice.
