Say something about yourself!
Yes and no. While there were some interesting parts that were like hearing a good spooky ghost story the book itself was not so great. For me it felt like the Warrens, particularly Mr. Warren was just spouting his greatness. The narrator was awesome and the best part of the book.
No. It was not a good enough book for me to recommend.
I had no favorites.
YES.... this felt like an extension of the movie. The only way to improve it would have been have Lorraine Warren do her vocals. But no matter. This book was a home run. You need more books of this caliber out there.
The stories,,, though I know there are many more not yet told...sequel please..?
He is a fantastic actor/ reader. Don't use any other reader if there is a followup with just Lorain.
Some of it scared the crap out of me... I will say that. I had nightmares for several days. I never get nightmares/
Audible this is your clue to get more compelling supernatural Christian nonfiction books out there. There is a market for it. This book needs a sequel. I have seen enough UFO crap. This is you next target to make money.
I don't think I would because I've already heard it. Maybe in a couple of years.
The fact the these cases are true. I believe strongly in God and good, therefore it only stands to reason that evil also exists.
He did a great job with the voices. I like the way he put inflections in Ed's voice,
Not necessarily - the information can be disturbing, so taking breaks is necessary. The stories are broken into nice sections making it easy to find stopping points.
The cases described in this book are amazing to listen if not undesirable to believe. Ed and Lorraine are amazing people and God bless them for doing what they did and even more importantly for spreading the word. Evil exists and our best weapon is God and love.
I hope there are more people with Ed's gift out there someone to help.
And everybody please.... Get rid of Ouija boards!!!
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 albeit completely unrealistic (and in my opinion, entirely made up). I purchased this book during the week of Halloween and wanted to get into the spirit of things. Plus, it's fun to be scared.
It's is a book about demon hunters, and supposedly a nonfiction account of two people who uncover ghosts and exorcise demons for a living. At first the book seemed interesting and kept my attention. However; the further I got into the book, the more unrealistic it became for me.
I'm more of a skeptical person upfront, and I'm not fooled easily (at least I think I'm not.) As the outrageous claims became more abundant, I just began to look at it as entertainment, plus it helped on some sleepless nights, but some of the stories in the book are just complete BS. There were a few chapters with interesting/creepy/fascinating stories but they were inter-spliced with long stretches of repetitive information and repeated cautions.
Basically...don't use a Ouija board.
The narrator was actually really good, and I think I'll see what other books he's read.
Overall: If you like a good or mild scare, this could be your book, but stay realistic throughout the book, then you'll know what I'm talking about.

I am a Christian and have been my whole life. My mother was a nun straight out of high school. After giving 5 yrs of her life to God, but realized she wanted to be a mother. While I am no longer a Catholic, I remain a Christian who has willingly given my soul over to Christ so that I may be added to His book of life. Believing in God is to believe in Satan. I find myself drawn to learning all I can about demonology so that I may be prepared for whatever evil may choose to throw at me. I cannot protect my family through prayers alone. I must arm myself with knowledge so that I may quickly take action should God test me or should my children, unknowingly invite evil spirits into our home. I am often misunderstood. Many believe I am foolishly dabbling in the occult; a dangerous hobby, but that is far from the truth. In seek to protect my loved ones. Does it not seem logical to be informed just exactly how to do so? Many of the atrocious events described in this book begin with seemingly harmless "child's play", plain disbelief that such horror and evil exits, and sadly, selfishness, greed and the desire for MORE MORE MORE. I can't help but wonder, if properly informed of the horrendous experiences, potential lifelong, emotional, mental, and physical scars their actions would bring about, if tey would have chosen a more Godly path. Knowledge is power, but even more powerful is keeping the faith and to never stop believing in the ultimate power and love of our Lord to keep us safe from such evil. God Bless.

Nothing, it is one of it's own.
He brings it to life. It is one of the biggest parts that makes this look so great. he uses different tones for the people involved, but not in a silly way. He is truly a mastermind in the best ways.
I did in the aspect that i can;t stop coming back to it. It takes such a deep look into the paranormal and the lives of the Warrens. I learn more every time I re-listen.
Worth the credit or money. I recommend it to everyone.
I enjoyed the performance and the story, if it were presented as fiction would have been great but something in the insistence that it was true just wasn't quite adding up to me. Maybe it was the dramatized reading rather than actual recording of run-ins with the supernatural or that all of the stories are from the 70's which was 30-35 years before the book was written and at this point it's nearly 50 years ago. I had expectations of being frightened or convinced from my skepticism and neither thing happened. I was entertained and I guess "learned" something new-ish? So that's a win!
The source material.
There is nothing to compare it to that I know of. Sadly I wish there were more books out there like this one.
His voice was level, he was recalling things, not trying to add anything and for a book like this, that is exactly what you want.
Yes and no. I wanted to know what happened next, but at the same time the book made me uneasy a feat that is not easy to do. I go to sleep to horror movies and spend a lot of time working in the genera, this however unsettled me and I enjoyed that. It is nice to know I can still be put on edge.
