Really enjoyed this. Although I knew the story, reading it in Russian made it even more fun. I knew what was coming but I still wanted to read and find out more about Phileas Fogg!! The language is a little more challenging, there are participles, but this is in line with the level being written for. This was about my level. I was able to read quite comfortably, but was challenged in places which is what you need in order to learn. Great book and would highly recommend!
