To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I read Tales of Belkin in Russian for GCE A-Level Russian 50 years ago. It was a pleasure to read it again - especially in this fine English translation. It was easier reading too. I have always particularly liked the story, "The Shot". The additional material was new to me and very interesting reading also.
THis is a really good, really well translated volume of Pushkin's writings... I got it for a good winter read, and wasnot disappointed. If you've never read Pushkin because you thought it too difficult, or heard it was hard to get into, THIS BOOK will change that perception - Don't believe the people saying this is too difficult to read, start one of the stories - give yourself 5 pages - and you won't put it down.
