"Quite entertaining, as much for the armchair enthusiast as for the practicing occultist." (Marion Zimmer Bradley, author of The Mists of Avalon)
I am extremely dyslexic and if it was not for audio books I probably would never read. I travel a lot and love to have a audio book playing
It was full of information and parts are hard to follow without the book in front of you but I know I would have never read it through without the audio book
It is not that kind of book it is a instruction book
This is the biggest load of bs ever published. So not publishing it would make me give it 5 stars
Who knows? I have a wide variety of interests.
N/A it is not a story.
Cut the entire book out and maybe revise the herb lore part to publish
What a crock. I have had an interest in nature based religions for a couple of years. I have done a good bit of research for myself. At first I thought this must have been written as a joke. I kept on listening and realized (sadly) that this guy was deadly serious about this stuff. Note: If I ever see somebody prancing around naked under the moon with a metal mixing bowl with glued on horns tied their head, I will laugh myself to death. This is the most idiotic book I've ever listened to. The guy that wrote this was a pervert. This is not a book about nature based faith. This is a book about weird made up rituals and pomp and ceremony. He writes an extensive section on how to make your own knife from scratch (this is really important and very easy to do according to "Uncle Bucky") Sure, because I keep an anvil,tongs and hammers in my kitchen for just such occassions! There is a lot of instruction on the proper style and color of robes to wear and detailed instructions on various complicated rituals. I fail to see what blindfolding and tying up a person naked then rubbing a knife over their body has to do with nature or spirituality (illustrations on how to tie up a naked person provided on the website).I guess this book has some value -as entertainment. The narrator does a good job and the herb lore is moderately interesting.
