What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
I was hoping to find a useful and instructive resource as I learn Malayalam. Pickings are slim with this language, but I was hoping it would contain some vocabulary that I would be able to practice with.
Has Rhythms Easy Malayalam turned you off from other books in this genre?
I wouldn't listen to any other books by this company.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
About 50% of the words in this audiobook are English words said in a Malayalam accent. I'm not kidding.
Any additional comments?
This VERY short resource is a series of words in Malayalam read over elevator music. The 'review sessions' are the same words repeated without translation over a different music track. I'm hoping this review prevents other audible users from wasting their time or their money.
