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.
Yes, the narrator's voice is clear, the vocabulary reasonable and the printed material is very helpful to read both before and after to help clarify words you may need to look up. I do have to say that most of the words can be inferred from the context, but even so there is at least one word a page I look up to be sure.
This is the frst book of it's type that I have listened to.
It can be amusing, but it is really more an educational tool than a piece of literature.
Worth every penny for the French student, low intermediate to intermediate, I would say or even more advanced if your listening comprehension needs work as mine does.
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.
