Anton Chekhov and his collected stories are an amazing read. This version, however, is TERRIBLE! It's so cheaply put together that there isn't even a table of contents. One has to just flip through the pages to find where a story begins or ends. Terribly translated, full of typos. Don't waste your money on this. You could do better printing the stories off the internet and stapling them together.
