Publisher's Summary

Are you fascinated by the subject of voodoo? 

Did you know that it’s much more than it is portrayed in the media?

Would you like to learn more about it?

Voodoo holds a place in our psyche like few other religions or beliefs and is something that has been misunderstood by people through many generations. Far more than sticking pins in dolls, as is often depicted in films and books, Louisiana voodoo has a rich history that is as exciting as it is complex.

In this book, Voodoo of Louisiana, we explore the history of this practice in detail, through chapters that concentrate on things like:

  • What voodoo Is
  • Myths and facts
  • Mardi gras, music, and food
  • Voodoo temples
  • The voodoo queens and kings
  • Voodoo practices
  • Foretelling the future
  • And much more....

Delving into the very spirit of voodoo and touching on other aspects such as racism and foretelling the future, Voodoo of Louisiana is a book that was written to open your eyes and show you something you never knew existed.

Get a copy of this amazing book today and learn the reality lurking behind the myths!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Same information in a 5 min loop

This book teaches very little and says the same thing over and over that can be said in 5 minutes.

repeats

the information in this book is about 1 paragraph. I could on stomach 6-7 chapters of listening to her restate the exact same information over and over and over. if you play the preview and out it on a loop you will gain the same knowledge.

Interesting insight.

The narration is not the best by any means but the information and perspective given by the author is extremely important.

Repetitive and Superficial

I was looking for a book with more dynamic storytelling, practicality, and historical information. instead of telling me what Voodoo is NOT, focus on telling me what it is! I support the work that this author is doing. Her accompanying PDF was a great addition to the book.

Not great...

This book is ungodly repetitive. It reads like a high schoolers report which they didn’t prepare for and through together the night before. This book could easily be one or two chapters but the author repeats her ideas over and over again and uses a very rough style to draw it out. I also don’t feel as though I learned nearly what I hoped to. I wouldn’t recommend it.

The narration ruined this book.

I was really interested in reading this book but after listening to this for 2 chapters i was done. I regret waiting my credit on this.

Can’t find the PDF?

Says it comes with PDF unfortunately I couldn’t find it.

The auto voice is a little off putting sounds like a computer voice so some of the context of the text sits a little off.

Repetitive in some parts but overall a nice read if your more interested prescribes or just a general understanding
