Audible Editor Reviews

The Pictorial Key to the Tarot was written by famed British occultist and longtime author of everything mystic, A. E. Waite, in 1911. This is a classic and esoteric guide for beginners and curious celestial seekers on how to read a 78-set deck of divinatory tarot cards, and dutifully describes the different ways with which to decipher the mystical meanings that some believe are found within the card’s cryptic symbols.
This unabridged audiobook is narrated with commendable plainspokenness and natural insight by Alec Sand.

Antiquated text ruined by attrocious reading.

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

I think this book would be best enjoyed by robots or those with a desire to learn an extrememly annoying and affected way of reading rendering meaning and communication near impossible.

Would you be willing to try another book from Arthur Edward Waite? Why or why not?

Probably not. Waite is deliberately incomplete and obfuscatory, due in part to the time he was writing in and the commitments he perceived he had to the order of the Golden Dawn. Put simply there are now better and more complete texts available.

What didn’t you like about Alec Sand’s performance?

Utterly attrocious. A horrific stop-start that tries to add emphasis and meaning but instead gives the listener piecemeal chunks of babbled text. Irritating to the point of unlistenability. Quite frankly, I want a refund!

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Extremely disappointed. I want a refund.

Any additional comments?

Avoid like the plague.
