Witchin' by Fiona Horne
When I signed up to review Witchin' I didn't know what to expect. The publicist hadn't told me much about the book at all, but I agreed to review it anyway. I had heard of Fiona before, and I figured it would be worth reading one of her books.
When Witchin' arrived, I was started laughing at the pink cover. Looking at the cover art, and seeing some of the art used inside, it's somewhat difficult to take the work seriously as an adult male. It has a cotton-candy appeal, clearly aimed at teenage girls. By the color alone, Finona has almost guaranteed that no male would read it. Frankly, they might as well perfume it and retitle it "Wicca: A blossoming young woman's guide to self-empowerment". Thankfully, I feel I'm under an obligation to review the book since they sent me a free copy. What was inside was a pleasant surprise.
Going through the book, I find that it really is targeted toward teenage girls. At the same time, it does a really good job of putting information in a clear and accessible manner. It's easy to read, and talks about all of the really important aspects of Wicca. Not only that, but instead of talking down to her target audience, Fiona has a realistic view of what teens are like and the kind of environment that they're living in.
Witchin' doesn't go into a lot of philosophical detail. This is both a good and bad aspect. Witchin' does not expose the target audience of deeper philosophical insight. On the other hand, considering that many teenage girls haven't been exposed to philosophy before, a thorough discussion of the topic would both confuse them, and loose their interest. Fiona does a good job of covering the basics, so that readers can get comfortable with a lot of the concepts, so that they're better prepared for more advanced texts.
One of the really nice things I noticed about this book is that there are no really far-fetched theories. Nothing about bizzarre phenomenon, or concepts that have huge flaws in them. The information provided is straightforward, comprehensible, well written, and sane. Sometimes this leads to concepts being a bit over-simplified, which can be a problem. However, oversimplification in a few areas is a small price to pay for having a clear reference that makes sense to its readership.
All in all this book is a good first reference, especially for teenage girls. Though sometimes in spots it tries a too little hard to be youthful ("Yummy"? Who, aside from 9 year olds say "Yummy"?), Witchin' manages to be a clear, thoughtful, and useful resource for those who are new to the craft.

Very Fluffy 17 janvier 2005
Par Jameta - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Going passed Ms. Horne's history and reputation, this book itself isn't too bad- it was the first one I read. However, after looking into the subject more, the text is too light and does not teach the concepts of Wicca adequately (it goes straight to the spells). I recommend to anyone, young or old, seriously looking into this path to read something from Scott Cunningham or Dorothy Morrison's "The Craft".

It's okay but very fluffy 21 février 2004
Par Shannon Mock - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I liked the fact of the book that it was an easy read and that the author is quite affable throughout the whole thing. The thing I did not like about it is that it really didn't aim on important things. It basically is a good supplement but I don't think it should be something that a person interested in the craft starts out with. I liked the fact that the author told about her teen years but also, was a bad thing because she became so distracted about telling us about her teen years that missed some aspects of the craft.

This book was very fluffy and comprised mostly of spells. I'd say if you are debating, then get the other book. Most likely it would be better.

Teen Witch Book 27 décembre 2004
Par Nichol A. Decastra - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is a rather good book for teenagers and for those that are just starting. Because it goes into the basics without saying it in words that make it hard for the reader to understand. She also gives examples for her own teen years; which I found very helpful. There are a few of things I wish she had gone more into but I believe she just went into what she believed was more important.

I also liked the fact that she didn't limit it to just Wiccans but others following magickal paths has well. She also doesn't limit it to just one sect of the Wiccan religion. Which I found very nice since a few books I have read over seem to focus on one Wiccan sect instead of a more boarder population.

Be Blessed! 4 mai 2003
Par "luxienne" - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Anyone with an interest in the Craft should first read one of the classic texts by Scott Cunningham (Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner) or Silver RavenWolf (To Ride A Magic Broomstick) for the basics, which aren't really covered here. Horne has some ideas that don't comply with those of many other Wiccan authors, but she is very fresh and incredibly fun to read. This book does a nice job of addressing the specific concerns of the teenaged witch (social issues/intolerance, family). It's a nice supplement for teens.
