Might work but no style
on 3 April 2010
I didn't like the book at all not because of the curses ans hexes etc. That is the point of the book. But from the language and tone Ms Morrisson uses. Talking all the time about 'all that crap' having a 'hissy fit' and the like made it awkward to read. I felt that it would have been much improved by a more cultured use of the English language, of which I am sure Ms Morrison is very capable.
Also I do not understand why this book is described as honest by so many. If it were as honest as all that, then there would be no notion of curses etc only being used only as a defense by good people who have had enough. If this were so then Swifting the Energy, which shows how curses etc can be turned for good use, would be all you need. Honestly this is a book for people who want to go the way of original witchcraft and curse when they feel like it. There is a lot of Hoodoo in there and a little Yoruba quite a bit of Wicca. I feel that a lot of the curses would probably work but I am not going to try them. Good book if you want to curse, or steal someone elses partner.
