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.

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.<br/><br/>

Any additional comments?

Thank you. This definitely is a dream come true material

Helpful eventhough some idioms are uncommon!

totally understandable and fluent accent. interesting to follow the stories.
the best suggestion is to upgrade the idioms and use mostly the slangs which is more popular. These idioms most are using by older people rather than young generation.
