in the Russian style. I love Turgenev (particularly his Fathers And Sons, which I highly recommend), and this story, like his others, penetrates to the center of hidden human feeling and emotion. (I almost never comment on narrators, but I have to say that this story had the misfortune of having the absolute WORST reader in the history of the audibly spoken word, and I am absolutely stunned that he could have ever gotten so much as past three words of an audition to do this job. This is a short story, so perhaps just find a printed copy and read it out loud to yourself--or pick someone at random on the street to read it to you. You can't do worse. Nonetheless, I rate the books and stories themselves, and so I am letting four stars stand as my overall rating for this fine short story.)

This is a very simple Turgenev short story which was completely predictable and with quite poor narration. Not worth the two bucks and thirty minutes.
