Publisher's Summary

Cartes Postales from Greece is an extraordinary new audiobook from Victoria Hislop, the Sunday Times number one best-selling author of The Island, The Return, The Thread and The Sunrise. It is fiction in full colour - magical and unique.

Week after week the postcards arrive, addressed to a name Ellie does not know, with no return address, each signed with an initial: A. With their bright skies, blue seas and alluring images of Greece, these cartes postales brighten her life. After six months, to her disappointment, they cease. But the montage she has created on the wall of her flat has cast a spell. She must see this country for herself.

On the morning Ellie leaves for Athens, a notebook arrives. Its pages tell the story of a man's odyssey through Greece. Moving, surprising and sometimes dark, A's tale unfolds with the discovery not only of a culture but also of a desire to live life to the full once more.

    Story
    "Wonderful - dig out your passport!"

    I cannot wait for my next trip to Greece after reading this. Lots of short stories and fables woven into the main narrative. Each tale provoking a different emotion and mood, and each as captivating as the last. The whole thing beautifully read by the author and others. I've bought the book so that I can re read my favourite stories and list all the places I need to go to asap!!

    Story
    "Possibly the most boring book I have ever read"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Usually I love Victoria Hislop and after reading The Island, The Thread etc I was so looking forward to reading this, but what a disappointment, I hated it. Story within a story within a story within a story............ on and on it went with more and more lack lustre characters being introduced. Finally I lost the will to live and gave up. Sorry but I can only recommend to those suffering from insomnia.

    "Dull, dull, dull."

    I found this book slow, dull and at times almost morose. The narration added to the mood. So disappointing.

    "What an amazing story!"

    I have never been to Greece, but this has made me want to visit more than ever! The amazing stories within the main story grab hold of you and drag you forwards in a way that you would never have expected. Some leave you feeling cold and edgy; others, warm and content. The combination of the whole book leaves you wanting more in a way that only a trip to Greece itself could satisfy!

    An amazing book, beautifully read and brought to life.
    Highly recommended!

    "Good"

    I thought the individual stories were interesting but the overall story was a little weaker.

    Story
    "Cartes Pistales"

    I usually love Victoria Hislop's novels but I was slightly disappointed with this one. I t was really just a collection of very short stories linked together by a journal. The individual stories are good as were the narrations but the book was not what I expected.

    "Makes you yearn to go to Greece."

    A great collection of short stories joined together by a simple, but lovely, narrative. The stories really capture the culture and society of Greece both now and in decades gone by. A really enjoyable read.
