Great stories, but badly published in this book
16 October 2018
The stories are great. But there are some misprints in this book. It is making the whole experience horrible.
For example- in the first story on page 7, there was a line "And Aksenov wrote more petitions, gave up all hope, and prayed to God."
I thought the sentence was a bit weird, so searched online for this story and indeed "no" is missing between "wrote" and "more". That "no" in the sentence makes sense.
In the second story, I am finding the translation to be not coherent. It feels to be a bad english translation.
This one is from "Jaico Books". Maybe another publisher would have better translation but I don't know.
