2000 almost useless nouns
Wow. After learning the entirety of this audiobook imagine how little communication would be possible. There are multiple chapters just on names of flowers or plants, but no inclusion of basic verbs, adjectives, prepositions, or adverbs. It feels like a Scrabble game being read for 3 hours straight

Good, But Would Be Better With Guide/Script
What made the experience of listening to 2000 russkih slov [2000 Russian Words] the most enjoyable?
The speaker's pronunciation is very clear and repeats the words or phrases twice. The amount of vocabulary for each topic is fairly extensive.
Would you recommend 2000 russkih slov [2000 Russian Words] to your friends? Why or why not?
I would recommend this audio book to intermediate or advanced students of Russian. The principal concerns: (1) there is no accompanying PDF with the text to follow along, so unless you have a fairly good command of Russian phonology you would not be able to write down the words that you want to remember with the correct spelling. (2) Without a PDF guide, you have now idea which topics are presented nor where they are on the file.
What does Eugene Tarasov bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Very good pronunciation/diction.
