Publisher Comments:

Twelve superb tales by Chekhov, Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, Pushkin, Bunin, other masters. Excellent word-for-word English translations on facing pages. Also teaching and practice aids, Russian-English vocabulary, biographical/critical introductions to each selection, study questions, more. Especially helpful are the stress accents in the Russian text, usually found only in primers.

A truly wonderful book for anyone interested in Russian or Russian literature. As for me, the main reason I bought this book was to get a feel of Russian literature and to pick up a few Russian words whenever possible. It is truly helpful if you want to improve your vocabulary, the accent marks make it an invaluable resource for anyone who's just beginning to learn Russian.

My advice is to read the stories in English first, search for the repeating words, read them in Russian, make a list of those words, then make flashcards of those words. Just make sure to check the words in an English-Russian vocabulary to make sure that you won't memorize the words along with their grammatical endings.

As for the stories, they're absolutely fantastic. I am not sure that this is the right book for anyone who doesn't have a real interest in the language though, as she'll finish it pretty quickly. For those who only want the literary aspect of the stories and don't have any interest in the language, I recommend buying an anthology of Russian short stories, as it will offer more stories than this book.
