A Sweet Short # 2

A Day in The Country by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov

This is a story of three unlikely friends and a day in their life. Fyokla, Danilka and Terenty are a trio out of which 2 friends far younger (almost children) than the third friend. The day for these three unfortunates (Although, fortunate enough to have each other!) starts with a trouble and as the day progresses they also sail with the day; overcoming little adversities, observing wonders of nature, sharing their experiences and moments together.

Story is so simple and fluid and yet recited with wonderful effectiveness to hold one’s interest. I specially loved the parts where detailed descriptions of nature and country provinces are given. I almost feel that I am living that part; experiencing rain and magical changes in nature.

I liked the story for its gentleness in writing, warmth of relations and beautiful descriptions of Nature.
