A little misleading, 25 July 2005
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.
