    "Good info, though not ideal for an audiobook"

    I'll start out by saying that this is an encyclopedic type reference book, as opposed to a chaptered nonfiction book. So while the information provided is interesting, it wouldn't necessarily be something you sit down and read start to finish. The topics are alphabetized, which is great while flipping through a reference book for your desired topic, but it seems disjointed while listening to the audio version of the book.

    The author states in the foreword that it is geared towards beginners so I'm not sure why the other reviewers seemed surprised by that or felt that it's condescending, though it could be another result of it being an encyclopedic book.

    All in all I would pass on this book in audio form, but definitely look for it as a physical book to reference as needed. The author noted several other beginner witchcraft books and I think I'll be looking into those as audiobooks instead of continuing on with this one.

    "for me a bit childish"

    this is the first book I have listened/read by this author. I felt that it was directed to a very very young person. I think if I were I the 11-14 year old range I may have connected.

    "What an awful dissapointment"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    if people exist who would enjoy this book, i dont know who they are, nor do i care to.


    What was most disappointing about Silver RavenWolf’s story?

    Wow... where oh where to begin? to start i will say, i got to somewhere in the 39th chapter before the relentless preachiness actually brought vomit to the back of my throat. in that time i can honestly say in the very rare moments when this book is not giving useless sarcasm, and an ironic feel of being judged by a christian ministers wife, there were a few moments where some interesting points of wiccan/pagan history/folklore was shared. as for any of the specific majik offered in this... um... well, i will not, not due to my lack in the subject, but considering the source, this is no opinion i will ever recommend following.


    What didn’t you like about Pam Ward’s performance?

    the only thing i have to say about pams performance is that i got the feeling she actually identified with the judgmental tone of the author. so if she was just doing her job, reading this piece of trash for a buck, then i cant blame her.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Solitary Witch?

    if you remove all of the nonsense, i feel like theres a really decent pamphlets worth of pagan history in there.


    Any additional comments?

    listen at your own risk... youve been warned.
