    "С чий очи сънувам, чий е този лик обречен?
    Смъртен глас ми се причува и отеква с вик далечен
    Как да зърна да погледна, чуждий образ да прегърна,
    на лицето ми студено грях в надежда да превърна.."

    Ooh...I can see the sparks fly!

    From what I understood, the Penguin book is a course, i.e. it starts from the ground up, has vocabulary and that sort of thing, whereas the Oxford book Mixaelus mentioned is a grammar review. So it's just a really big book with everything you could possibly want to know about Russian grammar. Handy if you've finished learning grammar for some time and you need to brush up or check on something. Or is it also a course?

    The Oxford Russian Grammar and Verbs

    It's not a course. It's a thin but comprehensive book with sections on, for example, The verb, The preposition, The numeral, etc. It describes just about every rule and exception to it. It's 240 pages long and cost UK pound 7.99.


    If you really want to learn Russian grammar it's an ideal complement to whatever book you are using.

    Yeah, my sister gave me a grammar review book as a gift. I like it, I'm going to start using it to check the exact declination of numbers with such and such preposition. Of course, I'll get the basic stuff wrong
