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 was so good most of my friends got it and we actually refrence the material when we take about horror movies or strange stories. I also have this book in print, so I clearly think highly of it.
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.
This story was a perfect marriage of a book that left you feeling a little smarter than you did before you read it, and a good old-fashioned scary story. The reader, Todd Haberkorn, is the audiophile's Josh Groban, great range, inflection, a treat to listen to.
I think this was well written to provide an interesting yet fact based story based on their lives. there was some parts toward the end that was really spoky.
