Publisher's Summary

Ronald Hutton is known for his colorful, provocative, and always exhaustively researched studies on original subjects. This work is no exception: the first full-scale scholarly study of the only religion England has ever given the world, that of modern pagan witchcraft, which has now spread from English shores across four continents. Hutton examines the nature of that religion and its development, and offers a microhistory of attitudes to paganism, witchcraft, and magic in British society since 1800. Village cunning folk and Victorian ritual magicians, classicists and archaeologists, leaders of woodcraft and scouting movements, Freemasons and members of rural secret societies, all appear in this book. Also included are some of the leading figures of English literature, from the Romantic poets to WB Yeats, DH Lawrence, and Robert Graves, as well as the main personalities who have represented pagan witchcraft to the world since 1950.

Horrible narrator

I can't even say whether or not I like the book's content because the narration is so bad that it's hard to understand what is being said. This book is read in a very slow, robotic, monotone voice. It is horrible.

Ruined by Narrator

I have no idea if this is a good book as the narrator killed it for me. This "narrator" doesn't actually narrate the book - he just speaks each word in one long monotone. Grab anybody off the street and ask them to read the book out loud and they will do just as good or better a job. I am asking for a refund as I cannot understand how audible can use such a robotic narrator.
