  • To Ride A Silver Broomstick: One Thing Not to Be Thankful for This Mabon

    Sep 20, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Silver's writing style is humourous, she has that one-on-one feel
    Cons: Dogmatic, no historical background presented, suggested readings without description, sections glossed over

    Summary: Whether you've noticed it from my profile, or know it from my other Pagan book reviews - I am a Solitary Witch. It means I am not a part of a coven, nor do I go to any sort of Pagan gatherings. I have studied magick (remember the k always, please, ... read more

    Pros: Beginner-friendly, involves hands-on study.
    Cons: It's a book. Some people don't use self-realization, and take the author's beliefs as "gospel".

    Summary: Silver Ravenwolf has definitely made a name for herself throughout the world as a Witch and most times, if you ask a group of Wiccans for a book list, they'll recommend "To Ride A Silver Broomstick" by Silver Ravenwolf. Why? ... read more

    Pros: RavenWolf has a great and engrossing writing style.
    Cons: Flakey as anything, RavenWolf didn't stop after this one book...

    Summary: I had a difficult time believing this book was written by someone serious about witchcraft and not some teeneager discovering the occult for the first time. It's a good read, true, but I thought it was too full of fluff and irrelevant personal ... read more

    Pros: easy read, lots of info
    Cons: there are some more advanced topics in this book that would be better left to an intermediate book

    Pros: a friendly, informative book for beginners
    Cons: the cheesy cover

    Summary: In my opinion, this book is THE BEST book to get started with-- it is truly Wicca 101-- but it isnt a baby step. Silver has a style that is very personable and yet knowledgable. She knows what she is talking about, and can explain complex concepts ... read more

    Pros: some useful information
    Cons: some parts too advanced for beginners

    Pros: Friendly tone, covers a lot of ground, an easy read
    Cons: Not for more experienced Witches

    Summary: This book gets great reviews from beginners and teens. It also gets great reviews from people who don't like to work too hard or think too much. I guess it makes their brains hurt. I actually had one guy on a BBS carry on what was essentially a two-week ... read more

    Pros: Great step by step information
    Cons: Not for the dabblers

    Summary: To Ride a Silver Broom Stick. The title all in its own brings on the usual Halloween fantasies of a group of overweight green skinned women dressed in black with pointy hats and noses. Its an attention grabber, and stops there. My title was very ... read more

    Pros: Easy to read.
    Cons: None

    Pros: Good introduction
    Cons: A little on the fluffy side

    Pros: Informative, Objective
    Cons: Not My favorite author at ALL

    Summary: I am the first to admit I am NOT Silver Ravenwolf's biggest fan. I have even been known to say that I'd rather eat dirt than recommend one of her books to somebody. However, To Ride a Silver Broomstick is admittedly a well-written book for the ... read more
