In the Ravine and Other Short Stories

Written by:
Anton Chekhov

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date
July 2002
3 hours 35 minutes
Here are twelve short stories by Anton Chekhov, one of the finest masters of what is acknowledged to be a difficult genre. There is the richly comic Oh! The Public, about a hassled ticket inspector, a wry look at morals and manners in The Chorus Girl, and the melancholic tale of a cab driver in Misery. Perhaps the finest of all is the novella In The Ravine, a minutely observed look at life in a village through the eyes of one family. All the characters come to life with their foibles, their strengths and their hopes. Kenneth Branagh uses his natural talent for characterisation to bring this village to life.

I have always loved Chekov’s short stories. I’m 72 now and I’ve been reading them and listening to them since I was 18. But it was a sublime gift to listen to Kenneth Branagh read the stories. I wish he would record all of them!
