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.
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.
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!
Avid reader 5 to 10 books a month. I like urban fantasy and Sci-Fi the most. I do enjoy a bio every now and then.
This story follows a woman named Lauren whose life is turned upside when an internet program hooks her up with a group of witches. There are many touching moments and smiles to be had here.
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.
I couldn't even finish this book. The narrator sounded like she was reading to children!! It was a chore just to listen for a few minutes at a time. I kept hoping it would get better since this is the type of book I usually like and actually did listen to half of it but couldn't take the condescending irritatingly "sweet" narrator.
I have read the ebook a couple of times and loved it each time. When I saw that it was available on Audible I just had to get it to see if the narrator would bring the book to life just like Debora Geary did when writing it. I was not disappointed Ms Pardee puts a lot of emotion in her reading and matches the tone of the writing, Great Job!! Also have A Hidden Witch and just downloaded To Have and To Code and A Reckless Witch.
