These are all fine stories, but not among my favorite Chekhov shorts. The narration is OK but does not add much to the stories. Four of these stories are childhood slices of life but seem to lack the darker humor I especially enjoy in Chekhov. A Trifling Occurrence was my favorite of the five and is the only one that feels like good Chekhov, yet even that is not a personal favorite. Overall I would only recommend this collection if you really want to get a taste of this particular Chekhov sub-sub-genre.
