Learn French with Intermediate Stories
This book contains short stories by Guy de Maupassant and Honoré de Balzac. Walter Schnaffs is a fun story about the 1870 Franco-Prussian war in which a jolly fat German soldier whose only thought is about his blonde German wife and four kids, and about good food, has to join in the invasion of France.
Losing his comrades after an ambush, he finds his own way around the French countryside, led mainly by hunger.
Learn French with 'Masked Love' by Balzac
The next interlinear French to English book that we published in paperback format is a novel by Balzac. Its concept is surprisingly modern for its time, as a young woman decides to use a lover for her own plans. I won't give out any spoilers, read it for yourself.
Reading French in interlinear format saves you time and allows you to grow your vocabulary quickly and pretty easily, because English meanings are right below the French words.
