Publisher's Summary

Cartes Postales from Greece is an extraordinary new audiobook from Victoria Hislop, the Sunday Times number one best-selling author of The Island, The Return, The Thread and The Sunrise. It is fiction in full colour - magical and unique.
Week after week the postcards arrive, addressed to a name Ellie does not know, with no return address, each signed with an initial: A. With their bright skies, blue seas and alluring images of Greece, these cartes postales brighten her life. After six months, to her disappointment, they cease. But the montage she has created on the wall of her flat has cast a spell. She must see this country for herself.
On the morning Ellie leaves for Athens, a notebook arrives. Its pages tell the story of a man's odyssey through Greece. Moving, surprising and sometimes dark, A's tale unfolds with the discovery not only of a culture but also of a desire to live life to the full once more.

Wonderful - dig out your passport!

I cannot wait for my next trip to Greece after reading this. Lots of short stories and fables woven into the main narrative. Each tale provoking a different emotion and mood, and each as captivating as the last. The whole thing beautifully read by the author and others. I've bought the book so that I can re read my favourite stories and list all the places I need to go to asap!!

Very little substance but well narrated.

The last chapter made the book for me, it was what I actually thought the book was about.
In between was a bit unstructured.
