Is there anything you would change about this book?
Make it a bit less repetitive and give more time to answer back.
Would you be willing to try another book from Pimsleur? Why or why not?
Yes! I have tried other learning tools but only Pimsleur teaches me the language to a point where I can impress native speakers and have functional conversations. Russian is the 3rd language I'm learning using these audiobooks!
Have you listened to any of the narrator’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

What aspect of Pimsleur’s performance would you have changed?
I find that the Russian speakers are not consistent in their pronunciations. A word will be broken down, the last syllable being a "oo" sound, and then when the word is put back together, the ending is "oh" or "ah". A question is intoned differently in Russian, but one example sounds much more like the way an English question would be pronounced than the previous examples had demonstrated. I like the way the course is structured, but the speakers just don't seem precise. If there is some reason the pronunciation changes, I'd like to know why. I'm not sure that I am going to buy the next set of lessons.

As someone who usually struggles learning languages I found the Pimsleur method very much suited my learning style. Each lesson starts with an overview of material covered in the previous unit before learning a new conversation meaning that phrases are well and truly drilled into your mind. Furthermore the focus is very much on conversational Russian rather than grammar. My only complaint is that clearer definition of when a word is male or female is needed.

Very good performance. You can learn the basics for a conservation with this audiobook. Recommended.
