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.

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.
