This is the second edition of a uniquely empowering, international word-of-mouth best seller about wild landscapes, female mythology, and the challenges facing modern women. It is a book for any woman who has ever lost her way and who sees a wasteland at the heart of modern existence and longs to live a more authentic, rooted life once again.

I’m so disappointed, and a total waste of a credit. I think the company has let the author down badly with this choice of narrator. I can’t bear to listen! The book seems lovely but the voice has killed it. I’m asking for my credit back. It is the first truly unlistenable audiobook I’ve come across. What were they thinking??? I’d rather have root canal treatment than listen to this pretentious, unsympathetic, unnatural reading.

There are hangovers, there are bad hangovers, and then there's waking up inside someone else's head. Thirty-something bartender Charlie Wilkes is faced with this dilemma when he wakes up to find himself trapped inside The Black Room - a space consisting of impenetrable darkness and a huge, ethereal screen floating in its center. It is through this screen that he sees the world of his female host, Minnie.

Bloody good yarn, watertight and compelling. Well plotted, funny in the right places, and I liked the characters, not despite the fact that they are rather "ordinary", but because of it. Author reads well, he has a good voice for performing and gave good life to the characters. Good idea for a story, well executed, and well read.
