This was ok. I was fascinated how everyone in Russia is poor and tragic and always fainting with tragic fever haze swoons and kept to their beds because they are so poor and depressed. I believe I would have enjoyed the stories more if I understood the background behind the society more thoroughly. I mean, were the two in the first story romantically involved or just wrote each other love notes? And were they even love notes? He was, like, twice her age. I had to force my way through half this book, but I did enjoy the ending of Poor Folk the most.
