Dans Crime à Cannes, le festival de Cannes rassemble, comme tous les ans, les acteurs célèbres et toute la presse people. Naturellement, Alex Leroc, le journaliste de L'Avis y va, accompagné de son collègue Jacky.
C'est le moment idéal pour interviewer les stars du cinéma. Un couple intéresse particulièrement notre journaliste : Philippe Frisson, un ancien homme d'affaires et Eva Torgen, sa compagne top-modèle. Un soir, Alex et Jacky découvrent un mort sur la plage, et ce n'est plus du cinéma. À la fin de cet ouvrage vous trouverez de nombreuses activités et leur corrigé : questions de compréhension, mots croisés, jeux de rôle et exercices d'expressions orale et écrite. L'audio est une lecture théâtralisée de ce livre.
Please note: This audiobook is in French.

I'm studying French and am now at an intermediate level. I was able to understand this book which is entirely in French. The plot is quite entertaining. If you are a fluent speaker, you might find the story a bit simplistic. For me, it was at a perfect level.
If you want to improve your French listening skills, this audio version is the way to go. The author obviously likes his central characters. They are a bit quirky but very likeable. The author's French is very easy to understand.
As long as I have my Audible, I'm content.
Another fun mystery from Christian Lause to read, listen to, and study French! (This is the second book I listened to by him) It's an excellent way to learn new vocabulary, see the conjugations in action, in an engaging way, and to hear the language used in a natural way, not those stupid CDs that come with textbooks! He's the perfect narrator for the books. I'm starting the next one right away.
Great performance and pronunciation for a short but interesting story. It's great for the French learner. I wish there were more stories like this for B2 and C1 levels.
I would! Of course, to a student of French like myself. I was very pleasantly surprised with Crime a Cannes and immediately purchased a few others in the series. It was very clearly read, with lots of expression, and was done with the French-as-a-second-language learner in mind: not too fast, clearly enunciated, with a story just interesting enough (and thankfully, simple enough) that I got neither bored nor lost.
Well, no, not exactly; it's not that kind of book. I was just happy to find an audiobook in French that wasn't way over my head. I read lots of novels in French, but it's one thing when you are reading and can look up words; it's a different animal listening to an audiobook in French. This book is a great way to segue into more difficult (made for native speakers, the level of what I listen to in English!) books in French.
I thought the reader(s?) was/were great, full of expression and humor.
Well, no...but I also liked that it wasn't hours and hours, either. I got through it in a few days.
Keep this sort of thing coming! I am an ESL teacher myself and I know there's lots available for various levels of ESL learners (perhaps not on audible.com, but I don't know - will look!) in the area of graded readers. I was happy to find something similar for French learners!
I think there's a big market out there in audiobooks (NOT language textbooks per se but actual stories, at different levels!) for English as a Second Language learners, and I wouldn't be surprised if you found a lot of French, Spanish, and Italian learners looking for this sort of thing as well. And when you are ready to get into Japanese, call me! I lived in Japan for 26 years, was mostly in language education, and I could help.

Only have the audio and it is just what I needed. It is read perfectly in clear and carefully enunciated, yet very realistic French. As I settled into listening to the narrative, I found my ability to follow and comprehend French improving by the minute--a perfect refresher for once fluent but rusty French.
Only the others of this series--wish there were more similar French narratives geared for mid-level French
Good and clear and entertaining--manages to get the different characters and voices well
Not quite--as I was refreshing my French, it helped to work on it in medium sized chunks to make sure I remained focused--the companion workbook really helps as a review after listening. Then, another listen, after consulting the companion text really all falls into place.
Very well done. . . I downloaded the next one and am about to listen to it -- preparing for a trip to France next month--a perfect fun way to review!
Well read with clear articulation and emotive voices. I would find it too simplistic in English but for an intermediate French speaker such as myself, it holds the attention. I listened to it several times and each time I understood a little better.
