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.

Art, Truth, Enlightening
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.
This book starts out sort of exciting - I was intrigued by this couple and was excited to hear the stories. However after the first few chapters I found myself bored and disengaged from the book altogether. In fact, I gave up halfway through.
This book, told from the point of view of Ed Warren starts to read like a laundry list of "accomplishments" that feels more like bragging/boasting than interesting. With all the scary stories/movies pulled from the Warren's work, I would rather read/watch one of those than finish this book.
I didn't even get to the ending
It's more than a story but almost a course in itself to know what to look for and how to react in the attempt of a spiritual attack. Key concepts: Difference between a ghost and inhuman spirit, Phases of possession.
Regardless of your beliefs, if you really dig horror movies, TV shows, and books - this is for you. Not sure I can readily believe all of what is discussed (I am a Christian), but I do find it very interesting from an entertainment perspective.
The facts! Ed and Lorraine are people I respect so much in the paranormal world and in general, and I trust everything they say. I love that they're fellow believers and that they are fearless! The true accounts in this book made this book amazing! I didn't want it to end.
I loved the 6 demons with the cockney accents! Omg they were hilarious. Now...if I was in that house, I would have been trembling but listening to them via audiobook was hilarious. They sounded like fun dudes who just liked to have a good time. Too bad they were demons hahaha.
Ed: "Turn off a light."
Demon Frankie: "Ah I can't mate, Billy pulled off my arm."
It was pretty funny before the guttural noises. EEK!
The Cockney demons replay was done very well but honestly all the reenactments of the possessions were impeccable. Very scary, believable, amazing.
The Best EFFING Paranormal Book To Read Ever By Paranormal Legends Ed and Lorraine Warren. AKA Heaven's Warriors. AKA The Coolest Couple Who Ever Lived.
Please somebody turn Ed and Lorraine's other books into audiobooks. This is the only one available! Also, I did not expect this book to be scary. And it didn't sink in until 2 days later when I was getting ready for bed, finding myself convinced I was going to spot a demon in the corner of my eye. I found the tips VERY helpful: Keep a bright house, a positive attitude about life, get baptized, NEVER touch a Ouija board, or mess with any type of magic EVER. This book was seriously a joy. A terrifying joy.
