    There are books of the same chemical composition as dynamite. The only difference is that a piece of dynamite explodes once, whereas a book explodes a thousand times. ― Yevgeny Zamyatin

    "Functional and fun"

    It's an excellent selection of idioms that can come in handy for non-native speakers of English. The situations didn't feel far-fetched. Learners of American English can use these examples of conversational English in a wide range of different contexts.
    The set can be used for self-study purposes or in the classroom.
    That was a good buy.

    Story
    "A great learning material for non-natives."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Because it is a very good way to make use of our time, while we drive, commute on train, etc.


    Would you recommend Easy American Idioms to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, especially to advanced learners. I think this is better than any other domestic (Japanese) materials.


    Which character – as performed by the narrator – was your favorite?

    I wonder if I know the name of them.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    This is a English learning book. I don't get moved by this kind of materials.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm glad I tried this book.

    "A foot in the door for getting in a better place"
    What did you love best about Easy American Idioms?

    The content lay out, how chapters are made, the plot, the actors performance and the good pronunctiation.


    What other book might you compare Easy American Idioms to and why?

    There are some books out there but fortunately I do not need to mention as this one outnumber them


    Which character – as performed by the narrator – was your favorite?

    Three of them


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, it wasn't; which, in this case, is a positive note: the content is so well designed that one needs some time to review the new idioms and practice them.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you. This definitely is a dream come true material
