False Friends: Book Two by Ellie Malet Spradbery

I received a copy of False Friends: Book Two through the LibraryThing Early Reviewers & I have to say, I really don’t see the point of this book. It is just a never ending (ok, slight exageration, it does have an end) list of English phrases, with their French counterparts. I will readily admit that I didn’t read these – why would you? Skimming was bad enough! This isn’t a book it’s a English/French phrase dictionary. To make matters worse, though they are presented in some form of order, it certainly isn’t an order that would ease searching for a particular phrase, say while in France on vacation. Also, there is no pronunciation guide, so again, it’s just a random collection of phrases that if you don’t already speak better than basic French you probably won’t be able to read, let alone say.

As suggested by the title, this is the second book in a series (which hopefully stops at two).
