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

    "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.

    "Not Happy"

    I couldn't get through the first chapter; I was too anoyed! When a Jungian Psychoanalyst begins a sentence with, "I think Jung said..." I worry. She talks off the top of her head... I'm disappointed that I wasted my money.

    Story
    "mostly crap"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    someone who has been really repressed and lived an emotionally painful life


    Has Women Who Run with the Wolves turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    passionately performed


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Women Who Run with the Wolves?

    most of it


    Any additional comments?

    this is just the opinion of someone and it sounds rambling in nature, not like a book at all. It's like sitting down with an acquaintance for lunch and having her tell you what's wrong with you and how to fix it.
