There are a few greats here. First of all it is a great novel from a great writer. Secondly, even with so many gaps in my vocabulary, there are enough aids in the intermittent explanatory words and phrases sections to help keep up with the narrative without interfering with the flow. I must say that of all the teaching methods I’ve come across this is the best by far. Another endearing thing about this method is the diction when listening to the chapters. Every word is pronounced clearly.
