Since books on occultism are very rare in audiobook form, it is difficult to find good ones. The chapters in this book seemed like it might have been dull, but it was not. Even to someone well versed in occult history, there was a wealth of information explored very intimately here. A good achievement in esoteric literature.
Peter Levenda's "The Secret Temple" is very similar. It is also somewhat juicier and written from a more esoteric perspective. "Cults, Conspiracies, and Secret Societies" by Arthur Goldwag covers more material but is not quite as in-depth.
He is sort of the ideal narrator because he reads in a way that is very matter-of-fact without too much inflection to influence the tone f the actual text.
"Little known streams of occult philosophy and activity operating within infuential circles and movements in occult history."
It was a bit tedious at times. Its failed attempts at being hip were a bit corny. The erotic element in the book wasn't really explored well.
Yes. The story was compelling and its take on magic was unique, even though plot motifs borrowed heavily from Harry Potter and Narnia.
Expressive and efficient...sometimes verging on the brink of over-doing it.
There already is one.
