anybody who didn t I won t start a witch hunt pun intended I think that if you never have met anything paranormal, it s totally understandable if you don t believe in any of this.So, it s normal that you won t believe in the paranormal untilsomething unexplainable would happen to you.If you believe in God, then you have to accept the existence of demons There is no light without darkness Even the Bible mentions about demons and exorcisms PERSONAL EXPERIENCES My family have a couple of ghost stories just to name some highlights First, my paternal grandfather died when I was a kid and some time later many stuff starting to get lost in my home and reappearing again later He didn t live with us, and while he was my paternal granddad, it was my mom instead the one who was certain that he was him behind of that Some night, my dad was out working, I was slept and my mom was the only one awake my brother hadn t born yet , so she talks to the air and she said to my grandpa that she knows that he love us very much but the thing about dissapearing stuff was scaring her too much, so she pleaded him to stop doing that She didn t tell anyone that she did that for quite some time but right after she did the talking , the stuff stopped to dissapear in my home.Second, my mom was really close to my maternal great grandmother and when my great grandma was dying, the process took several time One night, my dad got sudddenly awake and for a split second he swore that he saw my great grandma at the door of their room watching my mom He awaked my mom and advised her to call to my maternal family s house since he thought that my great grandmother had died She phoned right away and they told her that indeed my great grandma had died like half an hour ago and they were still making calls to tell all the family the sad news.Yep, true stories I gained nothing making up these 101 ON THE WARRENS The book is about the lives of Ed and Lorraine Warren, that they were paranormal investigators since the 1940 s and they were quite known by clergymen of several religions, college scholars and even the military but it was until the Amityville case that they got publicity enough to be known by general public.Lorraine Warren is still alive 2014 when I read this book and she has clairvoyance skills Ed Warren was a demonologist, one of the only seven demonologists recognized at least on the 1970s and the only non priest person allowed by the Catholic Church to make exorcisms Both dealt with hundreds of paranormal cases on the United States and England since the 1940s until early 1980s SOOO, THE BOOK The book was quite good and a very entertaining reading, however it didn t cover all the most important and famous cases of them While the book mentions here and there the topic of the Amityville case, it isn t exposed on detail About that particular case, I don t know if it was a decision since the polemic status of may be a hoax However, there are several other cases like the Snedeker , Union and Stepney Cemeteries and Smurl cases, even the Perrons case, aren t commented in detail here, not matter when the publicity on the cover of the book mentions that that particular case that inspired the film of The Conjuring.BUTWhile the cases that the book does cover are quite interesting and I didn t know about some of them.Honestly expected a most complete biography of their cases, especially the most famous ones I know that their career was quite long, but definitely the book should cover the most known cases.However, the cases that the book covers, indeed are captivating, so I have no real complains and I enjoyed a lot the reading and yes, it got real spooky at several moments.Besides the info and details about some of their cases, the book also it gives extended explanations about the differences between kinds of spirits, human and inhuman ones, and also the typical signals of the process of a haunting in any house Many of those cases with people involved in hauntings, they were guilty for being playing with books with dark rituals and most commonly with ouija boards Certainly not matter if you believe or not in those things, there isn t any excuse to start playing with dangerous stuff like that In some really rare cases, the person affected didn t do anything to deserve it, they say that it s like one every ten years that this may happen So, in the most cases, someone in the family must do something to provoke the haunting.Quite interesting enough, besides civilian families in most cases , in the book is detailed a paranormal case on the West Point Academy and the military command there, asked for the Warrens to help them And you can bet that so prestigious institution wouldn t call them if they wouldn t believe that they were dealing with something paranormal.On the book too, they detailed various cases of hauntings and demonic possessions presenting the transcripts of recordings while talking with the possessed people And one of the highlights is that the book indeed cover the famous case of the Annabelle doll.So, while I expected that the book would cover all the major cases of the Warrens, still the book is well written, quite entertained and highly recommended to any interested on the real deal of the paranormal phenomena

    Awful Just awful One of the worst books I ve read It was recommended to me as being one of the scariest books ever written, but it turned out to be laughable For those of us who grew up during the occult scares of the 70 s and 80 s, this book demonstrates the nonsense people believed in and had children afraid of during that period The basic message is Don t Play With Ouija Boards you ll get infested, oppressed, and ultimately possessed by demons who look like giant lizards if you were to Awful Just awful One of the worst books I ve read It was recommended to me as being one of the scariest books ever written, but it turned out to be laughable For those of us who grew up during the occult scares of the 70 s and 80 s, this book demonstrates the nonsense people believed in and had children afraid of during that period The basic message is Don t Play With Ouija Boards you ll get infested, oppressed, and ultimately possessed by demons who look like giant lizards if you were to see their actual form In most true haunting and possession stories, the devil seems to follow film special effects technology, as he can only seem to do what is currently available at the movies This book reads like a 1980 made for TV movie of the week novelization So beyond the Ouija boards, I learned to avoid acquaintances and relatives who may have an interest or own anything occulty, mirrors, gifts from friends, rich sorcerers, secondhand furniture, picture of deity from other religions, dolls, anyone who had a loved one die recently, raping ghosts, rocks falling from the sky, levitations, dematerialization and rematerialization of objects, anything in 3s And if you need to get rid of evil spirits go to church, have only positive thoughts, paint you rooms white or yellow, cut down a tree to allowlight into your home.Don t waste your time on this book

    Total garbage Fake as the Fox Sisters in time Margaret Fox Kane s conscience got to her and she confessed they were faking it, spilling all Fake as The Amityville Horror fraud which some participants confessed was a very well planned hoax that began with them deliberately buying the house, and subsequent owners have debunked it, yet people still believe it s true I laughed out loud at times, most of all at the doll story Oh well, I enjoyed The Conjuring and most of the Annabelle movies Pa Total garbage Fake as the Fox Sisters in time Margaret Fox Kane s conscience got to her and she confessed they were faking it, spilling all Fake as The Amityville Horror fraud which some participants confessed was a very well planned hoax that began with them deliberately buying the house, and subsequent owners have debunked it, yet people still believe it s true I laughed out loud at times, most of all at the doll story Oh well, I enjoyed The Conjuring and most of the Annabelle movies Patrick Wilson is so easy on the eyes Ed Warren didn t look a thing like him As if When I first read The Amityville Horror I believed it and was terrified When some friends and I went there and parked outside one night along with many other lookie loos we were seriously creeped out That was before I read Carl Sagan s The Demon Haunted World and subscribed to The Skeptical Inquirer which has now been surpassed by many excellent web sites Still, it s fun to be frightened, money was made, in the case of the Fox sisters a life was ruined, in the case of Amityville the damage had already been done before the hoax was begun, and in the case of the Warrens perhaps they deluded themselves but I had the feeling reading this they were laughing all the way to the bank

    I truly tried I really, really did I love anything that belongs to the realm of ghosts and ghost stories They re my favorite horror stories and movies of all time so when I say the advertisements for The Conjuring, I had to read this book.Incidentally, I did read the book first but I don t feel that whole read the book after the movie or else you ll be ruined really applied to me The movie wasn t scary at all and that s truly saying something I mean, cheesy TV series like A Haunting and I truly tried I really, really did I love anything that belongs to the realm of ghosts and ghost stories They re my favorite horror stories and movies of all time so when I say the advertisements for The Conjuring, I had to read this book.Incidentally, I did read the book first but I don t feel that whole read the book after the movie or else you ll be ruined really applied to me The movie wasn t scary at all and that s truly saying something I mean, cheesy TV series like A Haunting and Haunted terrify me.What ruined this book for me in order of least to worst 4 The number of times the author used the word diabolical It was diabolical how many times it was used Was there something NOT diabolical Pft.3 The examples of diabolical demonic things in peoples life just wasn t concrete enough It was like oh, you talked on a ouija board and that s why you had a flat taken to the extreme AND ON BOTH SPECTRUM If you won money, it just be because a demon is luring you into something terrible It s like you can t win I will say that comparing it to old witch trials like throwing into a pond make sense now You re damned if you do and damned if you don t Basically Find your dream house Watch out Demons are closing it Got a painful hangnail Fuck Go find that holy water ASAP.2 The bragging was way, way, WAY too over the point He says, over and over, how he s the ONLY non catholic exorcist recognized by the Church and how much proof he s gotten over the years All of which is BS If he had such solid proof, than it would ve been documented That s what scientists want, right Documentation, not you tell us what you saw over and over and over again.1 The worst, though, was his assertion that demons steal money to teleport into the bank accounts of satanic wizards Famous cases like the Amity Horror were the brother in law lost 1500 for his wedding was teleport into an EEEEBIL wizard s bank account Apparently Sounds legit He states that these ebil wizards never have to work a day in their life That the money just floats into their bank accounts and I thought geez, do these two have something against trust fund babies I mean, I m all for the evils of greed and all that but come on

    The Demonologist had been on my TBR for a while, and I felt like this Halloween season was the perfect time to pick it up I m really in the mood for some creepy books about hauntings and possessions at the moment, so naturally this one fit the bill I m a huge fan of horror movies, and The Conjuring and it s spinoffs are some of my favorites For those of you who are unaware, that series of movies including the Annabelle franchise are all based on cases that Ed and Lorraine Warren handled thr The Demonologist had been on my TBR for a while, and I felt like this Halloween season was the perfect time to pick it up I m really in the mood for some creepy books about hauntings and possessions at the moment, so naturally this one fit the bill I m a huge fan of horror movies, and The Conjuring and it s spinoffs are some of my favorites For those of you who are unaware, that series of movies including the Annabelle franchise are all based on cases that Ed and Lorraine Warren handled throughout their career, and several of them are included in the book The Demonologist outlines many of the cases that the Warrens worked, including the Amityville Horror case It talks through the history of the case, what causes hauntings and possessions, and some background on the religious elements that go into exorcisms This book is definitely going to be hit or miss for people, depending on your beliefs and whether or not you re a fan of horror I won t get into this in depth, because it s not the place, but I ll say that I don t believe in the supernatural, but I LOVE horror movies, so even though this book is classified as nonfiction, I read it like it was fiction and enjoyed it regardless That said, I m not about go to playing with an ouija board or trying to summon demons as a joke just in case I m wrong no need to test that theory Ha Anyway, I ended up reading the book in one sitting because I was so intrigued There were definitely parts that creeped me out, and some that I found myself rolling my eyes at, but that s not surprising given the that the book was written in the 70s All in all, I was completely hooked, and loved reading the passages and responses to questions that the Warrens were asked by the author I think fans of horror movies, or who want to hear true accounts of exorcisms will enjoy this one This was a 5 star read for me, and definitely got me out of the reading slump I d been in

    A reader s enjoyment of this book is going to depend entirely on how they feel about possession, exorcisms, and he supernatural in general It s not going to convince anyone one way or another, so the skeptics are likely to find it ridiculous, and the believers will likely find this interesting and at least slightly terrifying.Personally, I found myself somewhere in the middle, since I m a big fan of The Conjuring films, and was really looking forward to learningabout Ed and Lorraine A reader s enjoyment of this book is going to depend entirely on how they feel about possession, exorcisms, and he supernatural in general It s not going to convince anyone one way or another, so the skeptics are likely to find it ridiculous, and the believers will likely find this interesting and at least slightly terrifying.Personally, I found myself somewhere in the middle, since I m a big fan of The Conjuring films, and was really looking forward to learningabout Ed and Lorraine I have to say, I wished the book was a bitpersonal, characterizing them as people, but The Demonologist is 100% focused on the career as the title suggests of the pair The book discusses various cases the Warrens were involved in very briefly for certain cases , while also detailing their point of view as far as dealing with the demonic goes It does get repetitive every case comes down to the basics weird things happen, demons are exorcized, things get better As for whether or not this is fabricated there are still a lot of questions when it comes to the validity of the testimony, and the extent of Warrens involvement in certain cases

    I got hold of this book after watching the movie The Conjuring on Dvd and wanted to learnabout Ed and Lorraine Warren I am a huge horror movie fan and am well versed in movies like The Exorcist and other demonic, paranormal films out there I approached this book not just to learn about the Warren s but also because I wanted to be scared, which is why I love horror in general It is fun to be scared So I didn t take the book too seriously but instead suspended my disbelief just enough so I got hold of this book after watching the movie The Conjuring on Dvd and wanted to learnabout Ed and Lorraine Warren I am a huge horror movie fan and am well versed in movies like The Exorcist and other demonic, paranormal films out there I approached this book not just to learn about the Warren s but also because I wanted to be scared, which is why I love horror in general It is fun to be scared So I didn t take the book too seriously but instead suspended my disbelief just enough so that I could be taken in by the stories that Ed and Lorraine described I wanted to be scared listening to the audio book in the dark, as I was reading it during the week of Halloween and getting into the spirit of things While some of their claims borderline on the outrageous, there were admittedly some things brought up that made me stop and think I remember in high school being in the basement of the school theater with some friends playing with a Oujia board I admit having some dark fascination with those types of things, again mainly just for the novelty of it But this book, if anything, did make me consider that perhaps it isn t right to play around with dark things like that even just for fun or entertainment Anyway I d advise anyone I know who was curious or wanted to read this book to do so strictly for entertainment value and to be scared It does offer informative info about exorcisms in real life and a bit of the history behind it If you are a fan of horror, movies or novels and especially things paranormal, or involving ghosts or spirits, you may find something of interest here And by the way the movie the Conjuring was quite good if you are a horror fan, but I d recommend watching that movie alone for the best effect Then if you liked it, this book is a great follow up

    I read this book mostly because I think the Warrens are good for a laugh every once in awhile and that some of the stories in it could be creepy if completely unrealistic and in my opinion, entirely made up.Instead of being creepy, this book is mostly full of a kind of bizarre and excessive praise of the Warrens and how special and amazing they are and no one else can do what they do It was pretty disgusting and arrogant even though I know it wasn t written by one of them, the author was so I read this book mostly because I think the Warrens are good for a laugh every once in awhile and that some of the stories in it could be creepy if completely unrealistic and in my opinion, entirely made up.Instead of being creepy, this book is mostly full of a kind of bizarre and excessive praise of the Warrens and how special and amazing they are and no one else can do what they do It was pretty disgusting and arrogant even though I know it wasn t written by one of them, the author was so clearly enad of them it may as well have been And then there were the times whenthan anything it was just kind of sad, such as the story about the homeless man in an alley who was completely repulsive and whom Ed Warren thought was obviously possessed when in fact, he waslikely just mentally ill The second half of the book seems to be predominately taken over by asserting the opinion that many cases of possession are mistakenly identified as mental illness, when in fact, it islikely the other way around Kind of left a bad taste in my mouth.So maybe this is a good book for people who believe all of this nonsense, but it s not a good book if you re looking for something creepy and possibly interesting, like I was

    UPDATE 12 14 17 What a great opportunity to revisit this sorry excuse for a book Basically, Gerald Brittle sued Warner Bros because he claimed to have rights to the story of The Conjuring and its sequels Warner Bros said no you don t, because they are true events that really happened Brittle retorts, nuh uh, these stories can t possibly be true because they involve ghosts and demons and stuff Give me 900 million dollars or else prove that ghosts and demons are real Instead of proving th UPDATE 12 14 17 What a great opportunity to revisit this sorry excuse for a book Basically, Gerald Brittle sued Warner Bros because he claimed to have rights to the story of The Conjuring and its sequels Warner Bros said no you don t, because they are true events that really happened Brittle retorts, nuh uh, these stories can t possibly be true because they involve ghosts and demons and stuff Give me 900 million dollars or else prove that ghosts and demons are real Instead of proving that ghosts are real, they settled for an undisclosed amount of money It s always a good sign when an author is extorting money from someone else to prove that what his nonfictional book is fictional.ORIGINAL REVIEW I know, I know I should have anticipated this I mean, it is a book about demon hunters A supposedly nonfiction account of two people who uncover ghosts and exorcise demons for a living.What I expected was a kind of fun romp through the supernatural world that I don t really believe in but am still at least a little interested in I wanted to read a book written by a skeptic, like me, who would probe into the lives of the subjects and try to separate the truth from the lies.What I got was a book written by a fawning, gullible, pandering groupie whose primary objective is to swallow every lie fed to him by Ed Warren There is zero critical insight in this book no ability or even desire to discover truth.The book reeks of the outdated fear popularized in the seventies and eighties that there is a witch or a Satanist in the house next door, just waiting to call forth demons from the abyss or to sacrifice your child on a pentagram on their bedroom floor.The Warrens are frauds and that s all there is to it
