by | Read by Kenneth Branagh

Classics • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1900

The talented Kenneth Branagh, most known for his film and television roles in various Shakespeare works, tears into these classic stories with relish. Weaving a tapestry of character voices, Branagh uses accents, pacing, enunciation, and seemingly boundless energy to bring these great Russian works to life. Listeners will find themselves chuckling at times and tearing up at others as Branagh dramatizes Chekhov's deceptively simple plots and characters. The prodigious Branagh is well matched to these literary explorations by the master of the short story. R.O. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2015]
