Great book but can be frustrating
on 22 May 2011
I dont normally write negative reviews, especially on what is otherwise a good product, just I find certain parts of this book really frustrating. I am enjoying this book but for certain exercises which you cant really complete without looking at the answer key in the back pages unless you know about American celebrities & TV programmes as some of the exercises seem to be more of an American TV show & culture quiz but in Spanish. Most of the exercises in this book are very good & enjoyable but I feel that this book was spoiled slightly by the type of exercises I have mentioned. For example in one exercise you have to match childrens cartoon characters to which animal they are, I would have found this simple if I actually knew any of the characters(Shere Khan, Curious George, Wilbur, Old Yeller, Smokey, Templeton & Peter Cottontail), maybe I'm just not down enough with the kids despite having 2 of my own. In another exercise you have to read a paragraph about an American celebrity & write who you think it is, again you can only do this properly if you know anything about them(one was Tyra Banks, one was Doc from Snow White the other David Letterman. For these reasons I have deducted 2 stars from what would otherwise be a very good book.
