I'm addicted to books. According to Umberto Eco I am building an anti-library, meaning I own way more books than I have read. I love good fiction, literature, theology, Biblical studies, philosophy, children's books, and lots more.

Swan Song (Large Print)

Swan Song (Large Print) - Anton Chekhov Ok, ok. Yes I read this because it's short and I'm behind in my reading challange. Sue me. I also remember liking Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard in college and am a sucker for Russian literature. This is a one act play that can be read in 15-20 minutes. It has dramatic tension and a plot. The characters are believable and drew my sympathy. That being said, I also felt it was over too soon...like a well made short film that you wish was a bit longer. I would like to see it acted sometime when I want to be a little sad.
