French Demystified 3.2 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 10 reviews.

The examples in the eBook are graphics, so will not appear large enough to read on the Nook. Only the English body text can be resized. I have good vision, but the examples are much too small to make out on the Nook. In addition, the graphics are often misplaced, so while the body introduces the examples to follow, the examples that do follow are not relevant. My money was wasted on this one. If I could give a negative rating, I would. Overall, I was more mystified after trying to read this eBook than I was demystified.
