Okay. I just finished this book while sitting at my desk at work, and I feel like subsequently kicking my coworker in the face and shaking them while sobbing. I mean, I’m not particularly fond of this person, but it’s usually not this bad between us. I seriously just went through a ride in a plane and got pushed out without a chute. I need MORE!

So there obviously has to be another book coming in the series. It’s not exactly unpredictable, but full of tiny surprises in the means to the ends. Yes: there are lots of “ends.” I don’t even want to write a true review as I simply cannot without going through 1,000 spoilers.

Just. Read. It. (Or listen to it...)

I will have to say that I was very skeptical about this program at first, but Pimsleur has definitely converted me! By unit 17 of phase 2, I was able to converse with a couple from Germany. Mind you, I do not have a
FULL vocabulary, but the couple said that my pronunciation was like that of a native speaker. Granted, I do spend more time than the program recommends per day and have had to repeat some units, but to be able to be understood by a non-English speaker after only roughly six months TOTAL (including this program and others) is impressive. Of these programs, I have used the Pimsleur program for about four of these months. I can speak better German than I can Spanish, of which I had four years of formal study.
