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

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
