A Good LIttle Book

What did you love best about The Beginner's Guide to Astrology?

The author introduces each sign/house/quality in a memorable way. Nan describes the glyph, gives some background, a little speculation (but not too far out!) and then transitions nicely into the next. I never lost interest and unexpectedly learned a lot.

Have you listened to any of Nan De Grove’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

One commentator stated that he did not care for the author's voice or manner. I rather liked listening to Nan!

good beginner info, poor performance

good review or beginner info. the performer did sound a bit like they drank milk before their first reading of the script. but it's well worth it for any student looking for a short and sweet review session

Couldn't finish

I'm sorry but authors shouldn't read their own books. Or someone should have told her there's no need to pause after every word. it sounded like it would be a good book I couldn't finish. I even sped it up to 1.5x but the pauses and the slowness just made me unable to concentrate on what she was saying

Narration

Very informative. My issue only lied with the narration, it was difficult to continue listening because of the amount of mouth noises (smacking lips, saliva, etc).

Too much

Didn't care for narrator. Desperate attempt to sound mysterious. Voice better used reading a child's book.
