I was really looking forward to this audiobook after listening to others by the same author. Unfortunately I really struggled to get passed the awful recording quality. It sounds as though it's been hugely electronically compressed beyond the point of tone degradation. I even deleted it and downloaded the high quality version...which is exactly the same. I got half way through and couldn't listen any more.

Recorded in a kitchen?

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

It really sounds as though this book was recorded in someones kitchen... it's very echoey which interferes badly with listening to the french sentences. It's actually quite hard to hear the word in the frequently over complicated sentences. The sound quality also changes throughout the recording. Due to the overly complex example sentences I don't think this book will have any learning value for beginners.

Would you ever listen to anything by Alex Forero again?

No

How could the performance have been better?

If the book had been recorded in a studio the performance would have been better... the content would still need simplification though.

Any additional comments?

It's the first audio book I regret buying.
