"this is art!" - by Chris King (Northern Ireland)
This book is in the same genre as Orwell's '1984' and Huxley's 'Brave New World', but it is truly head and shoulders above both. 'We' is written by a man who experienced life under Stalin and was expelled from Russia. It is evident that he is someone who has truly put his heart and soul into the creation of this book, and i feel that his experiences helped him to bring his words to life...
I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone - it stimulates the imagination while at the same time getting you thinking about the issues that lie beneath his words...beautifully written - it's art!...in a pure and simple form!

"Amazing book to build up current Russian vocabulary" - by Stanislava
The whole book is an amazing resource of current Russian vocabulary. In general, reading books in original is one of the best way to build up your vocabulary and I highly recommend it as a teacher of foreign languages. With this in mind, bookstores are full of simplified reading materials to quench thirst for reading Russian classical authors. But is it worth picking up a 19th/20th century vocabulary? In this book you will find such expressions like printer, e-mail, cooperation, Twitter etc. and their natural usage in monologues and dialogs. Pushkin is a great author, but he won't teach you how to ask for an account opening in Russian language.
So - I highly recommend this book to all learners of the Russian language.

"Excellent resource for improving Russian language skills" - by Brianaero (UK)
This is yet another brilliant book! It is a great story that supports learning Russian language. I find that combining the book with the audio files (obtainable from the author) is very helpful for developing my listening skills. I think that slowly I am improving at recognising when one word ends and the next one starts!!!
This is a superb continuation from the previous two books... I look forward to the next one...

"XOPOWO AND USEFULL FIND" - by Molo
Ive been studying russian for 5 years and this is the best book ive ever learnt from to date. On the left hand page you have the russian and on the right you have the english translation which is perfectly lined up with the russian which allows unknown words and forms to be easily and quickly known, meaning there is no longer any refering to a time consuming and frustrating dictionary. The translations are good and the stories are taken from Russia's most famous writers (Pushkin, Gogol, Turgenev, Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Leskov, Chekhov, Sologub, Bunin, Zamyatin, Babel and Zoshchenko) and because of this taking the time to read the russian is worthwhile and rewarding as you feel you are reading something of value. The Russian is hard in places and varies depending on the author. It is probably best for university level students who have a good basic understanding of russian ... full review

"Excellent-best in class for absolute beginners" - by Manx Mann (Isle of Man)
The BBC is usually very good at producing language courses, Talk Russian is another fine example.

It is exactly as it states on the front cover - The ideal course for absolute beginners - far easier and better for those who struggle with learning a new language than (beginner's russian by rachel farmer.) The course takes it very slowly and assumes no prior knowledge of Russia.

This course in not big on Grammar and as the course book keeps saying "Don't worry about words changing their endings. If you know the basic word you'll be able to make yourself understood."

At the beginning of the course book there is a useful ten easy to follow steps guide on how to use Talk Russian and at the end of each unit there is a helpful tips section on how to more effectively learn Russian.

Russian is a tough language to learn, especially as they use ... full review

"having read all/most of these stories in English I can say that they are excellent. (Yes" - by Sharon, Dorset.
This book is printed entirely in Russian, but you have to look very closely to see that... before you buy it. I didn't. Never the less, I have given it four stars, because, having read all/most of these stories in English I can say that they are excellent. (Yes, good news!) As can be seen by the pictures on the cover, the line up of writers is a stellar one- Pushkin, Gogol, Lermontov, Turgeniev, Dostoevsky, Tolstoy and Chekhov, Russian lit doesn't get much better than that. I only withheld one star because, of course, if you don't read Russian it's a complete dud.
I really think they could have made it's entirely Russian language content a bit more obvious.

"Well-prepared" - by Xenophon (London, England)
Elements which may challenge the Russian reader beginning with the language, and with reading Russian literature, namely poetry, are expertly dealt with by Michael Basker in this edition of Pushkin's 'Bronze Horseman.'

As well as the glossary, incredibly detailed notes at the back of the book and the stresses placed in the Russian text itself, Basker gives an excellent description of Pushkin's use of iambic meter in the text as well as his own view on how one could read the text (Basker follows on from Lotman and discusses 'nodes' in the poem which combine and recombine together to give multiple meanings and readings).

A very informative edition of Pushkin's masterpiece.

"Chekhov - the clue is in the name" - by E. E. Smith (San Francisco, CA)
Wonderful book with a marvellous little russian english dictionary at the back for those words that might be difficult for the student of Russian. One of my favourites by Chekhov. A study of human nature and how sometimes it surprises even itself.

"Awesome!" - by Miza
Highly recommended for advance students of Russian. Although it says it is in English, the whole book is in Russian and you have an amazing glossary in the final chapter. In my opinion, it is better to get a broader sense of what you are reading rather than being stuck for ages trying to decipher every single grammatical aspect and word to translate the text accurately! Believe me! As opposed to the intricate writing styles of authors like Pushkin or Tolstoy, Chekhov's style is milder than the first two if what you want is not being stuck translating thousands of participles or verbal adverbs! I hope you buy it and enjoy it!!!! :D

"Great and entertaining story" - by Masha
Great and entertaining story. Amazingly clever catering for several different levels at the same time: simple language on the surface, but lots of useful expressions for more advanced learners. Not to mention plenty of hidden cultural references to an utter delight of native Russian speaking teachers!
