Interest in Wicca, witchcraft, and magic has increased exponentially over the past few decades. It is estimated that there are over one million practicing Wiccans around the world today.

  • The history of Wicca: its modern foundations as well as its ancient inspirations
  • An introduction to the God and Goddess and their multiple aspects
  • The Wiccan holidays of the Wheel of the Year: the Sabbats and the Esbats

Good book, terrible narration

This is a good book. However, the quality of the recording itself is poor - very tinny and hollow sounding. Add to that the fact that the narrator is frequently unable to pronounce words in the text (eclectic was pronounced "uh-CLECK-lick," recognize became "RECK-uh-nize," etc.) and it becomes very difficult to listen to. I enjoy audiobooks as read by a diversity of narrators, but the ability to properly pronounce common words seems an obvious prerequisite for anyone chosen to read something aloud.

The sound of narrator is grating...

Kris Keppeler should not be allowed to narrate anymore books. I'm sure she is a lovely person, but she has major vocal fry. I cannot finish the audio book because her voice is too irritating. I'm sorry if this review seems harsh, but I'm just being honest.

Wow!

As a person who has experienced injustice on a personal level and seen others hurt by it, i felt helpless with the religious influences that I was raised with. Ultimately feeling a "tough luck" kind of vibe from the heavens. But knowing that balance and the ability to empower myself gives me new hope for what good I can do. This was a refreshing and informative read with no pressure. I feel truly inspired for the journey ahead. I highly recommend this piece for anyone in need of a healthy start on their wiccan way or seeking information on what wicca is all about. Fears dispelled! Blessed be!

Great information! A perfect starting point

Alright, so I'm not done with the book yet but I felt like I needed to put in a review - reading the reviews before purchasing almost swayed my choice. Here are a fee of the things I've noticed so far and I am interested and do plan on continuing and possibly listening to the rest by this author.

Narration: If you're picky about your narrators I would definitely give this a sample listen before purchasing. Her voice is a bit grainy and monotone - she's not the worst but also not the best.(*If you've ever heard Doreen Virtue read... it's kinda like that but actually a bit better.) Her enunciation is not on point either. However, she is a pretty clear speaker and has a good tempo. Not too fast, not too slow. (Looking at the positives here!)

Information: This book is FULL of information for anyone that is eager to practice or just curious, there is a lot of details about origination, and it is very beginner friendly, everything is broken down into process-able pieces for the mind. It's full of good stuff to get your started.

I would definitely recommend this book to someone who is okay with monotone narration, someone who is interested/intrigued by wicca/witchcraft and looking to possibly begin practicing. It's a very good "square 1."

Wonderful Introduction

I liked the whole book very much. It is informative, not pushy and it gives a peak into Wicca without the need to be the only truth for everyone. Thank you very much indeed, I will read this again to be sure to not miss anything that would be helpful to me.

Great info, poor performance.

This book was packed with great info but really hard to follow because of the narrator. Between mispronunciations, illogical breaks, and a strange cadence, I would have much rather read the book myself.

An Excellent Guide to Wicca

I was expecting this guide to be very very basic, and although it does go over the core beliefs and practices of Wicca, I found lots of new information here. I particularly like how the author goes into reasons for why Wiccans do and believe particular things, some of the interesting history and even breaks down ritual for beginners.

For anyone starting out or simply interested in Wicca, I would truly reccommend this guide as it is clear, to the point and very educating.

Wicca for begginers.

of good at writing these, but. found this audio book by accident, and I'm just starting Wicca, and found listening to it better than reading the books, though I do love reading the books, I am more of an auditory, and visual learner, I feel I've got more from this book, than on the two years I've been reading.thank you to the audio person who read it. XxxxxX
