The message was good, and I wanted to be won over... but something about the delivery just rubbed me the wrong way.

Fascinating and well presented.

An interesting subject matter with great illustrative examples. The narrator does a good job keeping things flowing.

I absolutely loved this. The message and the delivery were so spot on. Never preachy. Felt like just getting caught up with an old friend and realizing some things about life along the way.

Definitely glad I read it as an audio book... Amanda Palmer's voice and cadence and timing just really added to the narrative. also music. always a delightful bonus.

Incrediably full of facts and information without being too bland. The narrator is good, albeit not great, and pleasing to listen to. Not always clear when she is reading a quote - other Macmillan books I have listened to, the narrator took on accents which nicely broke things up. But her voice is good and her pace with the constant onslaught of facts is good.

The narrator is fantastic, does a great job with the accents. The story is interesting, but also very enraging. I didn't have a lot of respect for people who climbed Everest before, less so now... but it was interesting to get the first hand account of the foolishness.

The concept is interesting, but more to the point is Clarissa Pinkola Estes narration is just really pleasing to listen to.
