Publisher's Summary

Men come and go, but magic is forever...right?

Wrong. After a few months of letting witchcraft slide, Jane Madison discovers that not using her powers has her rapidly losing them. Meanwhile, her warder is avoiding her, her familiar has moved out, her mother is abandoning her again, and her grandmother is...getting married? With her world turned topsy-turvy, Jane is at her wits' end trying to set things right. Staking everything on a last-ditch spell that backfires spectacularly, Jane is left full of questions. Will her powers return? Will she find true love? Will she talk her grandmother out of orange and silver bridesmaids' dresses?

What magic does the future hold for this modern girl?

    Story
    "Good Story, bad experience."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator makes this book 'hard to listen to'. It sounds as if she is running the Boston Marathon while she narrates. She takes a breath two or three times in a sentence, adding commas and periods to the manuscript that surely are not there. And when is the last time you knew an adult to pronounce Library as "Lie Berry". It ruined the whole book for me and the story actually seems interesting. I just can't get through the reading.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story line is good; the characters are interesting. It sounds as if the writing is done well too, if you can get past the narration.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Emma Galvin?

    Someone like C.J. Critt may bring it to life.


    Was Magic and the Modern Girl worth the listening time?

    Unfortunately I have tried twice to listen and the narration is so distracting I keep switching off to books I've heard many times for peace of mind.


    Any additional comments?

    Give me my credit back....LOL

    "Decent story. Love the characters. Poor narration"

    Narrator pauses and breaks phrases and sentences in weird places in storytelling. Can be distracting. Not a smooth reader. Bizarre.

    What did you like best about Magic and the Modern Girl? What did you like least?

    Good continuation of the story. Narration was terrible. Simply painful to listen to the whole book.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Emma Galvin?

    Probably I could have picked someone off of the street to read it to me and would have had a better chance of getting a good narration.I really hate to be so harsh but the narrator's voice and cadence of reading was so irritating. I did not want to finish after the first few sentences but did not want to lose the money I had paid for the book so I finished it. She mispronounced some words, paused continuously where no pause should have been (between sentence phrases), put inflection on words that did not need emphasis and did not put any emphasis on others that needed it. Her voice and manner of speech sounded like a hyped up teenager who was always just on the edge of yelling. I kept thinking the voice and pattern of speech reminded me of someone and finally remembered - she sounded like Rocky on the original Rocky and Bullwinkle cartoons. Probably have only heard one worse narrator through Audible books. I should have listened to a sample of the book first - have learned my lesson!


    Was Magic and the Modern Girl worth the listening time?

    Yes but was so hard to finish due to the terrible narration. There were times I wondered if I were listening to a computer generated narration but surely that would have been better?


    Any additional comments?

    I will never choose a book with this narrator again.
