I'll repost my suggestion from the last "great reads" thread on HN.

The Bet by Anton Chekhov

You can read it here: http://www.eastoftheweb.com/short-stories/UBooks/Bet.shtml

It shouldn't take more than 10 minutes. It's so fantastically misanthropic, I cannot recommend it enough.

The polemic against society at the end is just epic.




I read this story in high school and several years later I had a strong urge to read it again. I couldn't remember the title or the author, so I paid someone $10 on Google Answers to identify it. Highly recommended.


Thank you! That was very enjotable
