    "Scottish history as never before"

    Fantastic story, I didn't want it to end. I loved the characters and the accents given to them by the narrator. I especially loved Corrag's view on nature in all her winter glory. The gory bits were realistic without being overdone. I was brought up near Inveraray (among many friendly Campbells and McDonalds) and this gave me a special interest in the story. I learned a lot about Scottish history from this book.

    "Beutiful, eerie and utterly captivating"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Corrag to be better than the print version?

    As I haven't read the book physically, I cannot compare the audio edition with the print version, but the narrator was astoundingly good. The story was already excellent but the haunting narration pushed it further up to a great piece of literature.


    What other book might you compare Corrag to, and why?

    I cannot really compare Corrag to anything else I have ever read, although it has many elements common with other books I like. It is set in historical times, in Scotland, it tells of unsettled times, from a womans perspective. There is a kind of love story (or rather a longing for the other person), suspence, violence. The language and narration is poetic and beautiful. I don't think you can listen to it without responding emotionally to it. It is not a book that could have been written by just anybody, so beautiful. A book I know I will listen to again and enjoy very much.


    Have you listened to any of Caroline Guthrie’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to any other of Caroline Guthrie's performances (I am sure I will though) but can without any hesitation say, that her performance was stunning and utterly suited to the story.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The whole book was deeply moving.


    Any additional comments?

    A big recommendation as one of the most emotionally gripping books I have ever listened to. I am a big fan of the Outlanderbooks as read by Davina Porter, (representing sprawling and lifelike universe narrated, nay, almost acted very lifelike and convincing) but Corrag narrated by Caroline Guthrie is more poetic and eerie, obviously a much shorter book and focusing on very few characters, but in a way, all the more beautiful for it.

    "Beautifully narrated, emotional story."

    A must read for anyone who is remotely interested in history, justice, and the enduring strength of human kindness.
    The author transports you,the reader/listener, to a world of wonder in the Scottish highlands laced with unimaginable hardship and injustice. The beautiful observation of the natural world had me living and breathing every moment of Corrag's remarkable journey.
    I could barely tear myself away. Be prepared to be moved, outraged and thrilled.

    "Excellent audiobook"

    This was a fascinating story and so well read! The reader was just amazing at the different accents and made the whole experience so completely immersive it was as if you were being talked to by the different characters.
    A dark story which I imagine reflects life at that time and very sympathetically told.

    "You NEED to listen to this book!"

    An unforgetable read, this book transports you to another time and another place. I sat on buses feeling the wind of the Scottish Highlands and the cold stone walls of the cell Corrag is in, sharing her hopes and fears.

    A great look at a key event in history and the life of those people who were called 'witch'.
