Publisher's Summary

Jane Madison has a problem. Or two. Or three. She's unhappily working as a librarian. She has a crush on her oblivious Imaginary Boyfriend. And she just learned she won't receive a well-deserved raise; instead, she can live for free in a cottage on the library grounds. When Jane settles into her new home, she discovers a hidden chamber lined with ancient books about witchcraft. Her first spell awakens a feline familiar. Her second makes her irresistible to men. Those magical workings attract a sexy magical warder, and Jane's life is quickly turned upside down. Does Jane have what it takes to become a real witch?

    "Narration is Terrible"
    What would have made Girl's Guide to Witchcraft better?

    Another reader. I had to abandon the story within the first 15 minutes because the narration was so bad.


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

    Almost anyone. Her style was practically monotonic and she paused after every second or third word regardless of natural phrasing. I'll NEVER listen to any book narrated by this individual again!

    "Cute story, awful narrator!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This was a light, entertaining book. The story flowed well and kept my interest.


    What didn’t you like about Emma Galvin’s performance?

    The narrator doesn't seem to understand the purpose of periods and commas. There were many times that the end of one sentence became part of the next sentence, changing the meaning. If you record the next book in the series, please use a different narrator.

    "listen to the reviews"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No! The story was alright but the reader sucked big time....


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I knew the ending..... before half way.....through.


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

    Anyone would have done better. I will never buy another that she reads.

    Trying to listen to the story with the narrator ruining it

    "okay story---horrible narrator"
    What disappointed you about Girl's Guide to Witchcraft?

    The story had promise but the narrator was horrible! She paused every three words. Placed emphasis on the wrong words or phrases, had no concept of conversation flow or even sentence structure. Made it extremely hard to keep listening.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    A different narrator!


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

    Amanda Ronconi would have done a great job with this one.


    Any additional comments?

    Not worth the credit. Can I have mine back?

    "quality of the recording is less than great"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Listening to this book provides a poor experience, even for the cost. There were bits that were left out, parts that played multiple times or that were out of place. I am giving the Narrator the benefit of the doubt in saying that this must be one of her earlier recordings. The Narrator was flat and akward. This Narrator has recorded other books and provided a better, less stilted performance. I enjoyed her performance of the Divergent book.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Honestly, I have not yet made it to the ending. I listened to the bulk of this on a cross country car trip, but will complete the book reading, instead of listening.


    Any additional comments?

    When listening to a story, I hope to immersed in the characters and plot. When the recording doesn't flow or the delivery is flat, it pulls you right out of the story. It becomes difficult to really evaluate if you even like the story.

    Would you try another book from Mindy Klasky and/or Emma Galvin?

    Not by any chance I would listen to another book that Emma Galvin is the narratator.


    How could the performance have been better?

    A narritator that could rwad proparlly


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger

    "Horrible Narrator!!"
    What did you love best about Girl's Guide to Witchcraft?

    I think the story would have been cute, but the narrator ruined it!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Girl's Guide to Witchcraft?

    Trying to fight past the horrible grasp of the English language of the narrator.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She paused where she shouldn't have and didn't where she should have. She used improper emphasis on words causing them to make no sense. There might as well have not been any punctuation, because she paid it no attention!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I love to listen all day as I work and run errands. I have probably taken 5 times longer to finish this book, than it would normally take. I am the kind of reader who really hates to put down a book or quit listening, the only reason I haven't just walked away from it is because the story is good, but Emma makes it so very hard to listen to for any length of time. Keep having to take a break. My 11 year old grand daughter would do better!


    Any additional comments?

    Redo the series so that Mindy might actually have a chance of getting people to continue the series. I will not get the other books because of Emma's mutilation of English and Grammar.

    "Good Book BUT...."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would but I would also warn them about the narrator. As she speaks the end of each sentence ends with an up pitch inflection


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The way she ends each sentence with upward inflection. A little off putting, Thankfully not irritating enough to not listen to the series
