Publisher's Summary

First published three years ago before the print edition of Women Who Run with the Wolves made publishing history, this original audio edition quickly became an underground best seller. For it's insights into the inner lives of women, it established Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes as one of the most important voices of our time in the fields of Jungian psychology, myth, and women's mysteries.

Drawing from her work as a psychoanalyst and cantadora (keeper of old stories), Dr. Estes uses myths and folktales to illustrate how societies systematically strip away the feminine spirit. Through an exploration into the nature of the wild woman archetype, Dr. Estes helps listeners rediscover and free their own wild nature.

Thrilled but disappointed

Listening to the abbridged version by Estes' own magnificent voice was bewitching. However I was deeply disappointed when the performance turned out to be a very short summary of the original work. Please specify this for consumers.

Never a wasted minute!

Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes weaves a yarn like no other. All of her stories are lessons which can be re-listened to and with each listen, new information is gained.

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.

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.

Powerful Words

If you could sum up Women Who Run with the Wolves in three words, what would they be?

One of the most powerful works I've ever read. A combination of myth, reality and creative non-fiction used masterfully to tell the tale of woman.

What other book might you compare Women Who Run with the Wolves to and why?

I don't really think that there is a book that exactly compares, but I would say that it has changed my life in similar ways that books such as The Power of Now, The anatomy of the soul, and The Artist Way did.

What does Clarissa Pinkola Estes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She is a master story teller!

incomplete audiobook

I love this book and read it initially in print. the audio book is a recording from 2001 - it incorporates some of the stories in the book but isn't a complete narration of the book and is missing many parts.
The author has a great cadence and voice so it's easy to listen to. It's still worth the listen, but just know it's not the entirety before you buy it!

Abridged Version

I really wish I had read the reviews before I downloaded this book. It is only 2 chapters of the book and is not narrated as is written.
However, her storytelling is fabulous.

Too short :/

Unfortunately this is too short. I bought this as I have the book but haven't got round to finishing yet. This is a great book but it's such a shame so much has been cut out, it is more like a talk rather than a book and I would recommend the written book along side this.
