Reader Reviews:


3/5 stars

Challenging (1/1 people found this helpful)

This book is advertised as being for any level of german. This is not the case. The grammer and vocabulary are very advanced. I have been studying by myself for a few years and was constantly refering to the english translation.

The stories themselves are quite abstract, similar to those of Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

4/5 stars

Brilliant for building your German (8/8 people found this helpful)

I am inclined to agree with "wattsawatts2000" in that this is an excellent book, though indeed it has quite complex grammar in places and would suit A-Level students or those with a good working knowledge of written German. The notes added by the editor are very useful, and the English translations are very true to the German but without comprimising the English sense. I've found it a very useful and interesting way to build upon my existing German, and the stories are also very readable in English anyway. I would definitely recommend it to anyone of AS/A-Level standard (or equivalent) who would like a challenge!

4/5 stars

A little misleading (53/54 people found this helpful)

This is a good set of german short stories. However, the back cover blurb is a little misleading. It says that it is accessible for all levels which is not true. Any book which has the sentence "They served from an African lake there, which instead of having been caught in nets, had been anaesthetized chemically" can not be classed as being aimed at "all levels". However the stories are challenging for students at A-level and I can recommend them for keeping your German ticking over in the summer holiday between the AS and A2 years. The layout is excellent as well, and makes difficult sentences easily crackable without having to refer to the dictionary a lot.
