Certainly this audiobooks ranks about the top 15 of all the audiobooks I've listened to so far.
I simply love Anna - I think she's a great heroine, growing in emotional strength, being a person one can easily relate to, being a wonderful partner for her husband. Although Charles follows her closely in the "liking"-scale. I appreciate especially that he is not one of this super-human, emotionally closed-off alpha heroes that kill practically without remorse or repercussions just because it is "necessary". He has his own issues with the course of the story and makes his own mistakes, but never takes it out on the heroine or someone else.
there were parts that made me teary-eyed, but there are also some good laughs
I had a few problems with understanding some characters, especially Charles, but I'm not a native speaker. In the end, I just read some passages again and then resumed listening.
It provides good way to refresh your knowledge of french by giving you a quick summary of the most important situations and sentences with time to repeat the answers for yourself.
The speaker speaks clear which is especially important for a language course.
The tempo of this language course is quick. Therefore, it is suitable if you already know french and just want to refresh your knowledge. If you are a beginner, the speaker is probably to quick and there is not enough time to repeat the sentences and also not enough practice-time.
As stated above, this language course is not suitable for beginners since most sentences are repeated only once and there is only little time foru the listener to repeat after the speaker. But if you already learned french, but have forgotten most vocabulary, this might be a good idea to start and remember. It provides a lot of the sentences which are needed on a short trip to Paris.
