A good idea but terrible value for money.
Thanks for leaving a critical review, which I am genuinely grateful for, considering that virtually everyone else gives our ebooks five stars, which doesn’t really look credible (but all reviews are published and all are genuine, I swear.)
About length and value for money, our easy readers range in length from just a few hundred words (for beginners or near beginners) – so that’s deliberately very, very short – to many thousand words (for advanced students, who are capable of more.) Ironically, the short ones are much harder to produce and take a lot more skill from the writer. Nevertheless, they’re all priced exactly the same, because we assume that beginners and advanced learners will derive similar value from their purchases, and because the very short ones don’t cost us any more or less to produce than the ones that are dozens of times as long.
In short, this is study material – you’re not paying by the word, but for something that is supposed to be suitable for your current level, so motivating and supportive in your learning.
I assume you didn’t look at the free sample chapter before you bought this material? That’s what it’s there for – so you can evaluate the length and type of material and see whether you think it’s value for money, or not. What’s more, the audio for the entire story is available to listen to free online, not just the sample chapter, but the whole text (there’s a link in the free sample chapter), no purchase required.
So really, it’s a surprise that you were not aware exactly what we were offering at the time you decided to buy it.

A lovely little story, which helped a lot with my very elementary Spanish. The story line was interesting so at the end of each chapter I wanted to move on to the next chapter, but of course I couldn’t follow the story without learning a bit more Spanish first – an excellent way to teach a language, especially for someone who already knows quite a bit of Spanish grammar. (I should confess that I’m a retired grammarian, so I can cope; but I do wonder how grammar-free learners manage to work out what’s going on.)
