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.

Magical.

The quality of the content needs no emphasizing as this is one of the best books I've come across in a long long time. However, I would like to give a huge shoutout to the narrator. I was apprehensive of the audiobook version and in two minds about whether to read it or listen. The narrator couldn't have done a better job. The pace, the mood, the pronounciation, the tonality, everything is as perfect as it gets. Kudos. it was a magical experience.

Guess I know what "Abridged" means now....

Would you listen to Women Who Run with the Wolves again? Why?

Only if I could get the "entire" book on audio, didn't realize this wasn't the whole book

What did you like best about this story?

Love her storytelling!

What about Clarissa Pinkola Estes’s performance did you like?

The way she tells stories

Any additional comments?

I'm REALLY disappointed that this was so short - is there another way to get the entire book on audio?

Book is superb; Audible edition is a ripoff.

I didn't realize "abridged" meant only two chapters. The book is one of my all-time favorites. This audible edition is a letdown.

Is not the entire book

This does not include the entire book. Just a compressed version. Not all the mythes are included. No chapters and is hard to follow.

Really short

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

I also have a new appreciation for the word 'abridged.' This book is difficult to 'summarize.' The audible version is a good overview, but I wish I knew that the stories would be missed. I would have spent this 2 hours reading my book book.

Women who run with the wolves

too abridged - too softly spoken

Would you try another book from Clarissa Pinkola Estes and/or Clarissa Pinkola Estes?

I love the actual brick and mortar book . And I have two more of hers - unabridged - in my cart right now.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Too softly spoken. I listen while driving and it's hard to pay attention with her soft, slow voice. It also lulls me to sleep a little. I've restarted a couple times, realizing that my mind was wandering and I had missed so much.

Any additional comments?

I love the actual brick and mortar book - and it's huge. I can't believe they condensed it in to less than 3 hours. It's too abridged

This is not the original book. If you were hoping for the audio book version of Women Who Run With the Wolves, this is not it.

I feel conned

Unfortunately this audio version is not the whole book. It's merely a couple of chapters, out of 16. I bought it to listen to in the car, on my way to and from work, as I don't have the time to read the book at the moment. I was left with the feeling of having been conned. What a rip off!!!

Too short

Any additional comments?

This was far shorter than I expected. It was not clear just how abridged it was. Having read the book many years ago I was looking forward to hearing the depth of the work but it stopped after two chapters. I wouldn't choose to pay this much for such a short version. Very disapointed.

Abridged version narrated by the author

An excellent recording by the author herself, who as a storyteller and “cantadora” is exactly the right person to read it, and at times, sing it.

Note that it is not the full book. I did not know this before I downloaded it and was a little disappointed. However the recording at 2h20m long is very accessible and a great introduction to the book (which is very long and dense). It covers the main concepts and stories of the book. Excellent and highly recommended.

Amazingly insightful!!!!

An amazing read for both men and women. For women, this book finally makes sense of why our lives are the way they are. For men, it allows men a greater understanding of the innate beauty present in every woman. This is a book that every young person should read or have read to them. It explaines why every person is a unique individual and should be honoured as such.

A book for the wild woman in all of us...

Any additional comments?

Clarissa Pinkola Estes is a beautiful story teller. Every message she shares is done so with eloquence using tales of old brought magnificently into the here and now. I cannot recommend this enough.

Incomplete

What would have made Women Who Run with the Wolves better?

Sold the complete version, or at least let people know. Extremely disappointed, hard copy has many more chapters and stories in full detail. It’s a great incomplete book.

What was most disappointing about Clarissa Pinkola Estes’s story?

Her story is wonderful, but this audiobook is not complete.

Amazing and insightful

I read 'Women Who Run With the Wolves' in a paperback last year and loved it. I downloaded the audio book to save me time in re-reading it only to find that the audiobook was significantly condensed. However I still adored the messages and insights within the text.

Not the book!

This is NOT the book of the same name. It is more like a lecture that captures some but certainly not all the ideas in the book. It should have a different title. There are some great concepts in here but they are not fleshed out and there is so much missing from the wisdom offered in the book. Buyer beware.

A must for all women to understand their archetypal nature

Clarissa has a natural story teller voice.
I could listen to this woman for hours!

Women who run with wolves is a rich tapestry of myth and stories of our innate nature as women.
I find it’s like Clarissa has bought out into words the things that lay deeply in me, unexpressed (till now),by the languages of this world.
It’s insightful to those who know themselves, and those who are looking to further understand their inner selves.
I love this book.
It’s something I can, and do listen too again and again.
