I bought recently this book and I really liked it. Not only did I learn a lot of new vocabulary but I also liked the plot itself as it was written in a form that was suitable for my level of Russian. I used both the listening part as well as the reading. Before I started reading each chapter, I first tried to understand as much as possible while listening to it. I would not have dared read the original version of Anna Karenina, but this easier form was great. After finishing it, I felt like my Russian has improved. I can recommend it. After that, I set about reading other books.
