I loved the book itself. The stories were great and made for really great practice for reading the language. However, the price is insane! This book is tiny and there is no way it should cost over 20 dollars. I think it's good for Spanish teachers to use this in the classroom, but do your students a favor and make photocopies of the stories.

I have no idea about the merits of the stories in this book. It was a required book for a Spanish class that I ended up dropping for other reasons, so I was able to return this book. However, this is a cheaply made, pulp paperback that should sell for between $5 and $8. There is absolutely no justification for the almost $70 cost of this book. I fully understand that academic titles are pricey due to a limited market and the intellectual effort of the authors. In the case of this book only the first applies as there is no effort involved besides compiling the stories. If I could have given this book zero stars, I would have because of the blatant scam involved.
