I wasn't expecting much - I like to download a few undemanding fluff-books for when I am out walking my dog. But this fails to deliver even that. The plot is less than banal, the writing is poor and repetitive, and as other reviewers have noted, the whole thing is made still worse by the extremely annoying narrator. The inappropriate, constant happy twinkle in her voice is hard to take.
I would not recommend this book to anyone.
There is too much repetition in this book, and some of it isn't believable, even for a fiction book. The basis of the story would be good if I didn't feel like I was being sent to school to learn all about witchcraft.
The typewriter clicking noises is completely unnecessary. The narrator did what she could with the story, I suppose.
The child who is a 4 year old witch genius.
I hesitated before buying this because of the mixed reviews. I am a big fan of books about supernatural topics, so I gave it a try. It just doesn't go anywhere and I never felt connected to any of the characters. Save your credit!
I usually like a more erotic story but this one was great. Entertaining story that progressed at the perfect pace so you got thoroughly engaged.
Looking forward to more books by this author.
At the top of the list and I have read many audio books.
Jamie's coming face to face with his destiny
Her voice was easy to listen to, did not grate on the nerves
I have read all the books in the Modern Witch series and found the audio book just as good. It held my interest throughout the book. Iam looking forward to the others in the series going audio.
Great, relatable characters brought together through majic. Its a wonderful yarn about discovery and the unlocking of gifts, and finding a new suportive community that encourages greatness!
I hope the rest of the series is available in audible format.
Magickal, Fantastic, Entertaining
Aerwyn - the most powerful, littlest, and lovable witch!
Moira - great accent!
The celebration at the end was wonderful - wish I'd been there!
I just finished listening to A Modern Witch, and I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed revisiting all these folks again for the first time. Listening to the book was every much as pleasurable as when I read it, and I can’t wait until the next audio book comes out! I have always been one for re-reading favorite books, and each time around I notice things that I missed in the first reading. Thank you for making this book available as an audio book, Debora!
I sat through this entire book thinking it had to get better. It didn't. When one of the main characters is supposedly a 4 yr old "witchling" who can't understand why adults are "nekee" but does understand how cells separate in a woman's womb and create twins what the heck did I expect. This was just a particularly lame book with not a lot to offer. The narrator seemed to be constantly amused by something that the listener just wasn't in on. Do not waste your time.
This was terribly boring. The narrator wasn't great; the story didn't really get you hooked at all. I listened for over 2 hours hoping it would get better and it didn't. That's 2 hours of my life I'll never get back.
I enjoy mysteries, wrapped with violence and sprinkled with romance.
I don't think so. This was a series that I was interested in trying, but I found the lack of a plot, drama or a crisis makes the story...LAZY.
As I was following story's slow storyline I started to ask, "Hey, Is she going to hook up with the guy, is this the plot?" The love connection in the story isn't even a motivating force for the main character.
I USE THIS BOOK TO PUT ME ASLEEP AT NIGHT!
This was my first and last.
Any scene with the kid.
Goodness I hope not. It would be cancelled after the second episode.
EVANOVICH ROMANCES tend to be simple, slow and predictable. This is how Geary's book compares except most of Evanovich's romances are better!
I have all of Debora Geary's books and love them all. With almost all of the books out today, violence and near death are the norm. With these books, they are about family, fun, and solving problems without near and bloody death around every corner. The characters are like people you would know and quirky. GREAT easy reads.
