This book, which was a bit over my level at first, was a personal challenge for me. The translations were helpful, informative and to the point. As with all your other tutorials, your reading and pronunciation is clear and after listening to the audio and reading the text numerous times I became familiar with both the written word and the sound and was able to identify words easily in other parts of the story. I have enjoyed reading the abridged book and look forward to a time when I will be able to read the actual book in Russian. Yes, I most definitely would recommend your readers to any learner wishing to learn Russian.
