    This book was easy to read but contained vocabulary and grammar at the appropriate level.
    The story was interesting and held one’s interest to the last word.
    The choice of words and their meanings was appropriately selected.
    The QandA tasks are very useful and help one to focus to ensure understanding not just of the overall story but the development of the story.
    Well done as always to Daniel and the team.

    Ok this is an update on the first review as we have now worked through the text. I have just found another use for the audio (which needs a lot more listening to really grasp) I am trying to improve my pronunciation ( with the help of Paolo on the Skype lesson) I read a page out loud , recording it on Quick time player, and then I replay it and make comparisons with the audio on Sound cloud. It has exposed a few weaknesses I didn’t know I had, a work in Progress

    Just received this ebook and needed something fun to read tonight and this fit the bill perfectly! Tomorrow I will listen but today I just wanted to read. Found some new vocabulary which is always great and some expressions to use in the future. The story is fun and I was curious to see “where this was going”. This one just made me smile and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks for such a good read!

    One of the great things about the ebooks is that students of all levels can work together. My husband and I are at different levels and yet can both read and translate together. You notice bits of vocabulary re appearing which is a lot nicer than rote learning. Similarly it starts to become clear than in many cases, an Italian sentence would be put together differently to English. Because this “just is”, there is no need for grammatical explanations. After a while some constructions start to “sound right” as they would do in your mother tongue. Only when you come to the audio students at a lower level may find it faster, but only need to keep listening supported by the text if necessary.
    We are half way through this one and are both enjoying it, learning, and keeping the interest going. There are some nice little amusing lines and expressions too

    This little book kept me interested right until the end. It shows how mistaken we can be when we try to play detective. The writers make the story interesting for adults while at the same time writing simply enough to keep the story moving. Lots of new vocabulary and phrases and fun little exercises at the end of each chapter. I love the books published by the online Italian club.
