Beware - its required that you read along
Would you try another book from Olly Richards and Richard Simcott and/or Damien Guillaume and Susana Larraz ?
Learning French - its required that you read along in the instruction - App does not provide this facility - only Audio
Who was your favorite character and why?
I don't know
What didn’t you like about Damien Guillaume and Susana Larraz ’s performance?
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from French Short Stories for Beginners?
Any additional comments?
Expensive mistake because I bought 2 books - how do I get my money back?

Not a stand alone audio book
Contrary to the description, there are no summaries, voc lists etc in the audio. This seems to be more of a companion to the written book, which is not what I was looking for. Only heard the first story, but it seems appropriate for beginners and the narrator was good. But I will be returning this one
