Description

How do we find the courage to always be true to ourselves, even if we are unsure of who we are? The Witch of Portobello is the story of a mysterious woman named Athena, told by the many who knew her well - or hardly at all. "People create a reality and then become the victims of that reality. Athena rebelled against that - and paid a high price." -Heron Ryan, journalist "Athena's great problem was that she was a woman of the 22nd century living in the 21st. Did she pay a price? She certainly did. But she would have paid a still higher price if she had repressed her natural exuberance. She would have been bitter, frustrated, always saying, 'I'll just sort these things out, then I'll devote myself to my dream,' always complaining 'that the conditions are never quite right.'" -Deirdre O'Neil, known as Edda Like The Alchemist, The Witch of Portobello is the kind of story that will transform the way listeners think about love, passion, joy, and sacrifice.

Customer Reviews

Narration annoying after a while

The narrator uses the same voice for most of the characters- it gets annoying very quickly. The story may have been good but it was over shadowed by the narrator’s inability to use different voices. Also the main character, Athena, comes off whiney and unsympathetic in the narrator’s voice.

She does a horrible job reading!

She does a really bad job of reading because it's so boring! All the characters sound EXACTALY the same and it gets really annoying after a while. The book doesn't sound so bad but the reader just did a horrible job.

Love the nook not the naration.

The book is great but the reader is terible so buy the book.
