Hello everyone! I was recently given a book, To Be a Goddess, by Francessca De Grandis, by a friend of mine . She said it was pretty good probable something I would like. I was wondering if you guys had any input on her? I've never read her books before, I only know of this one and the follow up, for the life of me I can't remember the name.. I was going to sit down and start this one tonight?

So what do you all think of her will it be worth my time?

thanks,

Experiencing emptiness is also experiencing peace, and the potential of peace is its unfolding as harmony among all people, animals, plants, and things. The precepts formulate this harmony, showing how the absence of killing and stealing is the very condition of mercy and charity.

I've avoided the author myself, but I've not heard good things, it must be said. She's generally next to $RW in the bookshop.

I really don't care for her either.  I've read a few of her books and every time I do I have to stop a few chapters in and just put the book down because I don't agree with what she says.  I think her books are really for people on the outside of paganism, who might want a taste of it but who don't want to make the leap to calling themselves pagan.  I thought her books were boring, silly, had tons of misinformation, and had no relevance to my life.  I know it sounds a bit harsh but I honestly avoid anything written by that author.

My advice to you is to read the book and come to your own conclusion.  Who knows, you might love what she has to say?  There's only one way to find out.   Grin

If it's worth your time only you can tell.
It wasn't mine in my opinion.

There were about two or three things in it, I liked a lot - the way she said them and what was said.
But a lot more things didn't fit with me and the way I see things.

The worst is the Diploma you can fill out for yourself that's at the end of the book Shocked
I mean wtf?

Personally I think she is around the bend.
I have the feeling somewhen, somewhere she cracked.
