5.0 out of 5 stars Short dual language story
Loved this short story and the way it has been adapted for the kindle. Also great to see English/Spanish version together.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed
This product should be described as an 'extreme short story'! I have just read it on the smallest font on my Samsung Galaxy Tab and it totals 4 pages - and that includes the English as well as the Spanish. Not even worth 74p.

Amazon - can't you put some sort of page count on your KIndle books?

1.0 out of 5 stars Why is dictionary disabled? V E R Y short., 3 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Lady in White / La Dama Blanca (Short Stories for Studying Spanish Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
As others have said, its very short. Also, why is the dictionary function disabled? I like to look up unfamiliar spanish words up to get more info, but I have to come out, get into the dictionary, and search. Why doesn't the word come up automatically, like it does for other works? It seems very meant to disable it.

Otherwise, a good concept, but I wouldn't bother again from this author.

1.0 out of 5 stars Another mechanical translation: avoid., 1 April 2014

This review is from: The Lady in White / La Dama Blanca (Short Stories for Studying Spanish Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I bought two books in this series, the other being Crown of Fire. They are both word for word translations that I suspect have been through a machine. The English is not natural but full of Spanish constructs. The book is worthless for anyone studying Spanish and even worse for any Spanish speaker who thinks it will improve their English. A hint to the "author¨: read your translation back to yourself before publishing or better still get it done by someone who knows what they are doing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dual Spanish and English Language Book, 28 Mar 2013

This review is from: The Lady in White / La Dama Blanca (Short Stories for Studying Spanish Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
You need more than holiday spanish to read this book, but because it is dual language, you can easily learn the words you are unsure of. It teaches you how the spanish really speak grammatically. I would recommend this book as a language learning aid
