For me , i don't like dark book and horrible movies , because for me it look more dramatic and it is presenting ideas not exist on our live and its can bring fear to people in nothing . For example the clown who kidnapped children and no one know where he take them .

I don't like to read dark books.

Thank you very much! This lesson is exactly my level of English. And a very interesting one.


it has an error with the listening file. Could someone check for us?

Thank you.

Hello NKCHI,
I'm sorry to hear you're having problems with the audio. I've tested the audio and it is working correctly as far as I can tell, so the problem is a local one. Please check the settings on your device and perhaps try accessing the page from a different device (a laptop or desktop computer rather than a mobile device) to see if that helps.

Yes,I do like. The last dark book was THE NIGHT. The lowdown of the book is a story about the Holocaust it's written by a guy who had gone through this. I immersed myself in this story and need to say have begun to complain significantly less about difficulties with which I encounter in my life.
