The Witch and Other Stories - Anton Chekhov - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of The Witch and Other Stories:

The tales of Russian peasants.

My favorite Anton Chekhov quote from the book:

"And the old man could not answer what he would do with the treasure if he found it."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Are you happy with your place in life?

How do you treat your spouse?

My review of The Witch and Other Stories:

Such deep thoughts in such small bites.

Stories full of deep dissatisfaction.

Don't abandon your sheep for an abandoned treasure.
