The book its self has lots of interesting information but the audible version itself is organized in a weird an inefficient way.

The classes/exercises are merged with the information sections, so when you need to go back and do the daily training exercises they provide, your suck not only having to remember which chapter each exercise is found (no titles are provided with the chapters as well) but you also need to scroll to the precise location on the time bar to begin the exercise. It's really inefficient, considering how often you need to listen to the excercises to prepare.

Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

i find this book very interesting. it was wonderfully performed, and the content very intriguing. I have found myself on more than one occasion rethinking certain aspects of our every day life because of certain statements in the book, statements that make you think things we take for granted today. while the book itself is a dystopian it also leaves me feeling fortunate for where and how I can live life today.
