Even grown ups need a bedtime story.

If you could sum up Bedtime Stories in three words, what would they be?

Goodnight, sleep tight!


What other book might you compare Bedtime Stories to, and why?

The Creative Fire by the same author, otherwise this audiobook is quite unique.


Which scene did you most enjoy?

I love the way Clarissa Pinkola Estes retells familiar tales so that they sound fresh and new.


If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Well, it's just not that kind of book, it's designed to sooth you off to sleep, so it would be something like, "You won't stay awake long enough to see the ending."!


Any additional comments?

CPEstes has such a lovely voice and she lulls you into a dreamy state in which her reading works on a subconscious level. The only thing that spoils it is the corporate man's voice that wakes you up at the end saying, "Thank you for listening to Audible." Perhaps Audible could consider leaving this off their products designed to induce sleep.

Zzzzzz - but in a very good way

Like many people, I can find it hard to fully switch off and drift off to sleep at night. I've tried several audiobooks, with varying degrees of success down the years, however, I can heartily recommend Clarissa Pinkola Estes' book.



It's not just what she's saying, but the way she says it, that will have you dozing off within minutes.



The fact that I'm yet to actually make it through to the end of the book would be seen as damning criticism for most audiobooks, but, given what Estes sets out to achieve, it is obviously incredibly high praise.



A must-download for anyone searching for sweet dreams come bedtime.
