The first story led to some deep discussions about the universe with my ESL students. I am intrigued by the concept the story puts forth. I wasn't a huge fan of the second story, but two of my students said they really enjoyed it. This audiobook definitely added some creativity to my ESL lessons.
This is a personal favorite for me, as it always comes in handy with new students. Most English learners in the intermediate level do not know half of these idioms and phrasal verbs. The audio helps guide our lessons. I pause the audio to explain further. Very, very useful for English tutors.
I personally prefer science fiction and fantasy, but these murder mystery stories were a fun listen for my English students. The other audiobooks from this series have more multiple choice questions than this one. They get better after section 3 of the "learn English with short stories" series in my opinion. I'd say start with section 4 if you are not into murder mysteries, since you don't have to go in order with this material.
