To be honest, this book is hard to get through. I'm still listening, but it hasn't been easy. Not nearly as poetic and magical as 'Practical Magic.' I feel this book is typical of Alice Hoffman, who has written a few books that are just amazing but many more duds. The narration isnt great either. No attempt is made to find a distinct voice for different characters. I'm not asking for completely different voices or accents or anything, but at least different characters should stress words differently.
I read Practical Magic years ago. This novel takes you into the childhood of its main characters, and does not disappoint. The narration was just right. I highly recommend!
Well told story; narration just right.
Narrator’s voice would vary by volume to the point I had to adjust the volume
Practical magic has been one of my favorite movies. So going back to the Aunts childhood , life, secrets,and history was great! I Finished listening to it in two days . Enjoyed the narrator and the flow of the book. Loved it!
