    Atrocious & useless

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

    It's not possible to use it let alone enjoy it. Consists of people talking Italian very fast with loud music in the background - no repeated phrases and terrible sound quality - how is that going to help anyone learn?

    What will your next listen be?

    Not this brand of language guides, ever.

    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of the narrator?

    N/a

    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I could have kicked myself for not downloading a sample. 20 seconds would have told me that it was useless and a waste of money.

    Any additional comments?

    Just don't bother with this rubbish, you'd be better off with any other language guide.

    product is okay. Audible is the problem

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

    Must download Audible poorly designed software to use product. Can't access the lessons individually, can't move the language lessons to my Nokia phones (as per Audible customer support) have to download yet more software to download to my tablet. Getting nowhere with customer support. Trying to cancel my account and get my money back.

    Would you be willing to try another one of the narrator’s performances?

    Good enough

    A simply way to reinforce what was kind of lost from those Italian lessons. Definitely, the music method makes it easier and catchy.
    Good choice!

    Learn while driving or at the gym.

    Broken up into segments that can be repeated, this helped me with some basic and advanced words. Great for beginner or lower intermediate learners. Not for grammar, but vocabulary.

    Disappointing

    Music and sound quality are not good. Poor compared to other competitor CDs on the market
