This gentle audiobook, narrated by Kim Mai Guest, shares the Danish concept of hygge (pronounced "hoo-gah") with the rest of the rushed and lonely world. The production quietly explores definitions of hygge--the feeling of contentment, community, and belonging, cultivated alone or shared cozily with others--and expands the universe of small actions we can take to invite more of hygge's warmth and light into our everyday lives to "create an enclosing circle of warmth." Sounding contemplative, even meditative, Guest shares the history of everything hygge and is completely at home pronouncing Danish words and phrases. Though at times a little dry and repetitive, this audiobook is quite pleasing taken in small doses--with a lit candle and cup of tea. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2017]
