Best I've found on Audible

Found this really good. Definitely the best I've found on Audible. It's read in a Spanish accent (rather than Latino) which was something I was looking for and I found the level perfect for me. The speed was just right - it was at a pace that felt natural, while still being clear and wasn't too fast, nor painfully slow like some other of the audio books. And it's just the story, there's no time wasted telling you vocabulary you already know which I also found annoying with the other ones. If i don't understand a part I like to rewind and listen again, jotting down the words I don't know, then study them after. I find this method much more engaging than hearing someone monotonously repeating a word and its meaning. I found this through some of Olly Richard's other online work, and I find his style of learning/teaching much better. The stories are good, interesting and varied, and of a great length. Overall highly recommended for anyone at the intermediate level!
