This is an interesting idea for adults with an intermediate knowledge of the Spanish language, who wish to improve vocabulary and work on grammatical structures. Although the stories themselves are not the most exciting ever, the text is clearly presented and can be easily cross-referenced, and as the stories are short, they are digestible. The book comes with a short but interesting introduction about the included Spanish authors and their work, and the purpose of the book. Also included is a notes section detailing finer grammar, history and vocabulary points. The downsides are that the book is over 200 pages long, and filled entirely with words. On a purely aesthetic level, this could be a little daunting. Also, there are one or two discrepancies in the translations. Otherwise the book is enjoyable, and a handy reference text. I have not seen any other fiction books like this, and so it is a good investment, best suited for over 16s.
