really liked it

I tried even the shortest Tolstoy books but to no avail; I tossed them out for sheer descriptive drab. But Chekhov, he's another sort. I really like him. I started his short stories collections and I really really like it.

However, in this book, the stories are much briefer, some only a few pages each, but they are interesting, some of them morality inducing, some of them outright funny, and others that seem to punch you in the end. If you're not into short stories, then this book isn't really for you. But to everyone else, this is quite nice.
