Not quite what I was expecting
on 27 November 2013
Given John Matthews' reputation I was expecting more from this book. I do wonder if it's an early work, because it's not up to his current standard at all. The book becomes very repetative in its message - we humans are making a mess of things but it will be all right if we mend our ways. I'd hoped for something more insightful as to the sidhe themselves, but that never comes across, instead being covered by a much repeated 'I wasn't told that' and variants on it. In fact we learn very little of what it was he did encounter.
If you've not read any of John Matthews' spiritual books then this might be a passable starting place, but if you've read at all widely on the subject this won't tell you anything new.
