    1. The most interesting thing about the book is that it uses real-world practices of magick in realistic situations. For someone who is even partially versed in the occult it is a fun read and not at all dumbed down.I wish the stories weren't so insular, it would have been better if there was an over-all plot.


    2. I found this book to be, in turns, aggravating and enthralling. Some parts of it I really enjoyed, some parts dragged on, and I nearly put it down. I tend to be a bit put off when an author casts themselves as the narrator. It also made those parts of the book about other people seem too observational (or I wondered how the narrator knew what was going on when she wasn't actually there). I enjoyed the language of the book overall - I had no doubts about the author's grasp of language and advance [...]


    3. I agree with other reviewers that the quality is uneven. A couple of the stories I would have given five stars to, but the narration doesn't seem very well controlled. We don't find out enough about the narrator's life for it to work fully in the memoir style, I often thought that other characters would make more appropriate narrators for the short stories than the author, who is too distant and observational for them to be truly emotionally involving. The best pieces were probably the two stori [...]


    4. A lively exploration of ancient mythos in the context of Oxford in the 1990s. Some of the longer stories failed to sustain my interest until their climax, however, this book was an enjoyable first exposure to the Qabalah et al.Favorite line: It was not love at first sight because they both knew, as yet tacitly, that this was their past as well as their future.


    5. I really wanted to like this book.Had too high expectations probably. when  you see a book with occult stories and the word magick on the cover, with a K the last thing you expect is a theistic book full of catholicism and a wicca-wanna-be-magickian perspective and "so mote it be" rituals.The stories are quite dull, mundane and not that imaginative. They feel a bit pointless to be  honest and the characters are just not that interesting.In the end, I had to put it down cos I could not stand to [...]


    6. This book has the most beautiful poetic prose I have ever had the honour to read. The words invoked such strong sensory reactions, and once I opened the book I had to stay until the end.


    7. I wanted to like this book given the subject matter and the fact the author and I share many areas of common interest.However, I found it somewhat disappointing. The quality of the stories was quite uneven - some of them being too fantastic and others too mundane. I thought it rather a mistake on the part of the author to cast herself as the main character even if in real life she'd worked in such a bookshop. It made it seem a memoir rather than fiction.


    8. Couldn't work happily through this at all - the author is the protagonist so it wavers through being memoir one minute and a weak fiction the next. Her use of language is at times lovely but this is at the cost of sense; a good parallel would be the Blavatsky meanderings.
