Fictional (?) biographies of historical ppl involved in magic and mysticism
- Mary Karowski
All of the stories sound the same
I enjoyed the narrators cadence and pleasant voice in general. I did not enjoy the "true stories" that the author put forth. Before every account of magic, the author applies the disclaimer "the legend suggests" or "some people believe". I don't think true stories need to be partially discounted before the tale is even told.
With every Magician, they are bright and write of alchemy. In most cases they go on to find the philosophers stone and move to Asia. I felt like I was reading the same story with a different name and time during the dark ages. The Narrator was great and I would enjoy hearing her read again. I received this book for the purpose of review from the narrator or author at no cost through audiobook blast.
