Good Ebook A Nervous Breakdown There are three short stories in this collection and this time I decided to show you a really short summary of each one, with my short opinion about and after that my opinion about the entire collection. I love the first story (A Nervous Breakdown)! This story is written so beautifully and I love the moral in this one! about a man called Vasilyev. His two friends bring him to a famous prostitute street, but all he can see is how disgusting and wrong that business is. He thinks about it all the time and doesn't understand why this is still a thing and would love to stop it (like why could men think it's okay and see women as animals?), 'cuz he only wants to be in love with a woman. He tries to think of a plan to stop this business, but then gets all mad and gets a nervous breakdown. His friends try to help him but also think he's kinda crazy. The second story is called The Blank Monk, which is about a man who is bored with life and gets kinda crazy (a black monk ''comes by'' and gives him all the answers about life in general and how to be happy). I really liked this story, the only that bothered me though is why we never get to know what was in the letter at the beginning of this short story. I think that would have made the story even better, if it was explained (even if it was just a little).The last story, called Anne Round Your Neck was awesome too. It's about an eighteen year old girl marries a fifty-two year old man, just because of his money, but she realizes that money shouldn't be the only thing to marry a man..Again I loved all of the short stories. Penguin has done a great job when it comes to Anton Chekhov so I highly recommend his both little black classics. It made me want to read more by him now.

  2. I understand that this is 3 short stories, so the development you would see in a standard novel is not going to be there but I felt that the description was too brief However, I did enjoy the little insight into mental illness especially hallucinations with the middle story The Black Monk , which in a way has helped me learn about the impact of hallucinations on life, but for the other 2 stories, I wanted a little focus on the mental illnesses than what was given to me.


  3. This second foray into the mind of Chekhov has yielded enjoyment.It s not a spoiler to say the title tells all.A second bite at Chekovs work and I shall be back for a third.Any suggestions


  4. Again, a 3 1 2 Three short stories, involving breakdowns and hallucinations I had the feeling that something was missing, that the material has a lot of potential, but the medium of the short story was ill fitting A novella of maybe a 100 pages each would have developed the stories , given that both the hallucinations and the nervous breakdown of the characters in the two main stories seem to happen from one minute to the other, which is very unrealistic in my opinion But I praise Chekov for rai [...]


  5. The best short story I ve ever read, perfectly written, timeless, accurate and funny You can find this in various collections of Chekhov s short stories The Party and other stories is where I first read it.


  6. This is the third Russian title I ve read in the Penguin Little Black Classics series, while living in St Petersburg Three stories appear in this slim volume The title story describes a nervous breakdown brought about by a student s visit to the red light district He doesn t actually do anything there, he s just horrified by the concept of prostitution The second story, The Black Monk, features a young professor who starts to hallucinate and then leaves his comfortable life when his wife and fat [...]

  9. A Nervous Breakdown Brothels and prostitutes were not his scene and because of this he suffered a mental breakdown.The Black Monk A weird story of a man hallucinating the figure of a black monk who tells him he is one of God s chosen people.Anna Round the Neck young girl marries a rich man twice her age and then some She likes the attention other men give her First two short stories are very good and make me want to read of Chekhov s work, however the last story is lacking in depth and progress [...]


  10. 2.5 stars overallA Nervous Breakdown 1.5 stars lack of real connection and care for MCThe Black Monk 3 stars was some random shit I didn t really get and I wanted it to be longer Anna Round the Neck 1 star didn t enjoy the plot or characters at all, really.The thing about Chekhov is that I understand and really enjoy the themes of his stories, but I rarely enjoy the stories themselves There s a lot of subtext and usually very little plot with rather boring, still characters, and sadly that s not [...]


  11. I ve wanted to read Chekhov s work for ages, but for some reason I could never find it where I live Luckily I came across this little book and bought it right away It certainly didn t disappoint The book contains three short stories, all of them concerning a nervous breakdown of some sort The first one was a bit weird The story didn t really seem to have a point and ended rather abruptly, but it worked somehow I liked it.The second story was my favourite It played with mental illness in a way th [...]


  12. Russian classics in English that s a new experience for me Recalling Chekhov s short stories, this time I was hoping to have a good laugh from his wit and irony I was also curious how Russian humour would sound in English Well, I definitely picked a wrong book It s a selection of depressive and mental stories I enjoyed the read, it s just I was not in a mood for that type of stuff One thing despite the very well made translation, the texts definitely lose their real taste when translated Origin [...]


  13. A story which I really enjoyed Short and sweet, it makes you think about society and morality This law student is eager to help and yet the fallen do not desire help and just desire comfort, regardless of how immoral the life Nobody in society cares whether you are moral and you see the wrongs of the world everybody just cares for their own material desires Once you speak out that there is something wrong and things need to change, you are deemed mad perhaps you are deemed an obstacle to their g [...]


  14. First foray into Chekhov great work by Penguin as ever in their selections for the Little Black Classics Three haunting stories exploring psychology in Chekhov s beautiful prose Definitely ready for .
