Lola y su socio Miguel viajarán a Figueres (Cataluña) para intentar resolver este difícil caso.

Fun Not So Beginner's Spanish Novel

Would you consider the audio edition of Por amor al arte [For the Love of Art] to be better than the print version?

Both the print and the audio version are necessary for the beginner conversationalist. Even with repetition, I don't think I would have ever figured out much of what was said without the book.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

For what it is, a learning tool, it kept me listening. I wondered what was going to happen.

What about the narrator’s performance did you like?

I liked the expression in all the performers voices. The actress performing Lola was entertaining.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

An interesting little mystery that teaches art and Spanish.

Any additional comments?

I'm an A1 listener at best. However I would say that this A2 book seemed even higher than that level due to the speed of the speakers. Some of the words were not audible. I guess that was for realism.
