I really enjoyed this. It's both accessible and profound. It got me wonderfully through a few days in bed with the flu. The themes are universal, but the writing style simple and engaging. Very enjoyable.

When Hungry, Eat

This review is from: When Hungry, Eat (Paperback)
I was full of high hopes for this book. The theme is an important one. But this was too heavily filled with irrelevant and rather mawkish domestic detail. It was rather like reading a personal diary that had been spruced up for public consumption. The trouble is like most of our diaries, it's just not that interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally involving and educational too!, 19 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love this book. It has everything: great characters, a thrilling plot, masses of humour. It also gives you an insight into a bit of fascinating welsh mythology. I particularly love the way Nan and the other elderly characters are given a part in the story and Ava is a Star! I would wholeheartedly recommend it.

This is a great read populated by warm, complex, beautifully described characters that you really care about. A wonderful insight into a hidden world but with universal resonance.

Becoming the Enchanter: A Journey to the Heart of the Celtic Mysteries
Becoming the Enchanter: A Journey to the Heart of the Celtic Mysteries
by Lyn Webster Wilde
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Becoming Enchanted, 13 Nov. 2002
I found reading this book is both exciting and unsettling. As a psychologist I am fairly sceptical usually about otherworldly or magical experience preferring to maintain a clear boundary between the realms of fantasy and reality but this book had an extraordinary effect on me. I had some haunting dreams and the atmosphere in the air around me seemed tinged with magic while I was reading it and for some considerable time afterwards. I felt that the compass points by which I normally orient myself psychologically had somehow gained an extra dimension and the boundaries of my world had stretched and moved in unexpected ways.
Lyn Webster-Wilde's prose is very easy and accessible and the story rattles along at a great pace. She manages to convey a sense of connection with 'the otherworld' and also the emotions that accompany the experience of gaining glimpses of this other place. Reading 'Becoming the Enchanter' reminded me of the way I felt reading The Narnia books by C.S. Lewis as a child which left me with an overwhelming sense of the reality of this 'otherworld'.
