    I had to rewind in a few places in order to absorb the depth of the words being spoken. Definitely a candle to light the previously extinguished flame. Very warm and well suited narrator. I enjoyed this!

    "I thought it was the whole book!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If this was the entire book, I would have given it 5 stars.


    Any additional comments?

    This was my first time listening to an audio book, so I had no idea that this was not the entire book. I see now I have to look at the hours. Very disappointed. I thought I could listen to this on my commute. I had to go buy the book to finish it because it was selected for my book club. Not a happy camper at all. Well, what I did listen to, it was very good. Not so good reading it, though. I had to think too much while reading it and go back and forth rereading paragraphs to get the gist of what the author was talking about.

    "Great story but didn't agree with most points"

    Not sure I agree with a lot of what she says but it was an interesting read non the less.

    "not a good reading"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    reading was changing pace all the time. At some point it was too slow to pay attention to the book.

    insightful, gracious, liberating

    This author links valuable information from traditional stories with psychoanalytical ;theories in a fun, accessible way. wow.

    To be our natural selves is so important. Women are different from men and that's ok.

    "I LOVE THIS!"
    What made the experience of listening to Women Who Run with the Wolves the most enjoyable?

    And I feel that the author narrating it gives it additional life. I too, tried to read the book awhile back and just couldn't get into it. The audiobook is a whole other story. If you are trying to reclaim your wild woman... this is it.

    "Woman Who Run With Wolves"

    I read the book after it came out and loved it.
    This audio version was flat and boring due to the narrator. This was very disappointing. Another narrator might have given it more life.
