I love to listen to audiobooks. It is great when the narrators get into the story and really bring the characters to life.
The narrator of this book made you feel as though you were in the room talking to him. I loved it. The recounting of the stories is fascinating! Check it out!
I found I couldn't stop listening to it. I listen while I do my work at work and one of the nights I was looking for an excuse to stay late to hear more!
What made it the most enjoyable was the fantastic stories. I came in skeptical because of the media backlash against the Warrens and I wanted to hear more. While they seem a little polished, true, at the very least they are wonderful story tellers and tell those stories with rich detail.
Uncomparable as far as my experiences go. It's essentially a fluid collection of their most impressive cases and instructions on how to deal with negative energy in your own life and how to resist possessions.
He was fabulous at instantly switching from one character voice to another. His voices all sounded different and had no annoying speaking habits.
I was just fascinated.
Take the content with a grain of salt, but it sucks you in and definitely makes you think about what could be out there.
I love listening to audiobooks while I work. My interests in books is all over the place...science, history, spirituality, ufo's, etc.
Informative, Addictive, Creepy
The case files that are presented are very well written. The knowledge on the subject matter that Ed and Lorraine Warren pass on through the author is very extensive and is presented in a way that is easy to follow and understand.
The voices of the various demons and other characters were all very well done. The narrator does an excellent job which I found added to the appeal of this book.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone that is curious about the subject of ghosts, demonic possesion and exorcism. Very well written, very well narrated....This is one book I will definitely be listening to again.
A 32 year old with a painfully short attention span. Audio books brought me back to reading.
I guess the obvious one would say The Amityville Horror, but that's touched on very lightly in this book as well. The other obvious one would probably be The Exorcist, but I haven't actually read that one.
Oh wow, where to begin? He really brings life to the characters in the book, and he literally gives them voices, and rather distinct ones at that. I immediately knew who was talking every time before the narration even specified. I really cannot get over what an amazing job he did, if I could throw on some extra stars in my rating I would.
I don't know if moved is the correct word, but as soon as the Annabell story mentioned the doll I said "ah hell no" out loud. That definitely got a reaction out of me.
I'm an atheist. This book didn't give me a sudden belief in God. It did however, bring demons "alive" (figuratively speaking) enough for me that I got to thinking how many possible near misses I'd had in my life. It also moved me to decide it was time to throw away the Ouija board I've had for the past sixteen years. I'd only used it a couple of times within the first two years of getting it, and it's spent the rest of its years tucked away under a bed, but better safe than sorry. I have enough problems without demons thank you.
Yes. After watching "The Conjuring" and knowing who Ed and Lorraine Warren were, it was really interesting to hear more about their lives and the cases they were involved in. In the telling of their work, it really opens a persons eyes and reminds the listener that good can overcome evil.
The most compelling aspect was how Haberkorn relayed the story of the Warren's and how he used his voice to create an edge to the telling at the intense parts of the story.
No, not yet.
I don't think I could capture the content any better.
BOOKS!! SO MANY WONDERFUL BOOKS!!! GO SEAHAWKS! #12thMan
The mix of stories. The book is broken into chapters that each are their own story.
After seeing, "The Conjuring", I wanted to learn more about the Warren family. I found the idea of exorcism, demons, possession and ghosts very compelling.
The story on the Annabelle Doll.
I could listen to this in one sitting. It has a good flow and definitely keeps you on your toes.
I love Horror movies and books. I have seen most of the scary movies ever made...
That being said, this book (and not to mention the movie), was some of the few times I have actually felt spooked. I actually had trouble falling asleep a couple times and I never get scared.
Classics, history, historical fiction, marketing, Napoleonic stuff and of course 'Boys own Adventure'. This is my bent. Occasional self help as well.
This books starts off with a nice sceptic view and moves into spooky nicely and then just ridiculous. Come on, why would demons trouble themselves with us. Why do you have to go through so much administration and pseudo waffle to get rid of them. I am the first to admit that science does not have answers for everything but demonic forces and fallen angles, REALLY!
Makes for good movies this stuff but it is pure entertainment. Things that go bump in the night. No real science has even come close to proving this stuff. I am sure it is all a government conspiracy of alien forces controlled by secrete religious organisations within religious organisation who are pulling the string, or some evil agency who does not have our best interest at heart.
Todd Haberkorn does a good job narrating the book and Gerald Brittle's writing is clear and well versed.
I think you either believe this material or you don't. I guess my question is if there is demonic forces why aren't the angles taking care of business, seems they are asleep on the job.
Never the less I suggest if you are not committed to either side of the debate, listen to a sceptic book at the same time and start to make up your own mind. Lastly, is the book worth listening to, yes if you like a little spooky entertainment, however if you are looking for answers no.
The best book yet, I have actually listened to it 5 times. The narrator is great!
Something about this book that truly gives you the chills. The stories and the lessons the Warrens share with you, hopefully you will never be in a terrible situation.
I love that new England accent.
Don't mess with the Ouija board.
Yes. The book balances between getting the reader to understand the down to earth grounded personalities of Ed and Lorraine Warren against the highly unusual and extremely dangerous work they did. There is a lot of detail missed in the first listen worth going back and hearing again.
Ed Warren as a lay person living in our time juxtaposed against a very real and very ancient religious battle between God and Satan. Ed and Lorraine are true heros going into rescue people they did not know.
Voice inflection and cadance
The most amazing tidbit to me was the affirmation of how truly the power of love and happiness can immunize people from potential demonic infestation. How Satan using despair to gain entry into someone's life.
This book is a very fact based documentary on the work of a well-known and highly respected couple.
This is an educational and objective look at the spiritual world. The narration is exceptional and the narrator brings you in with his ability to switch to many different voices. Definately worth the credit and it will have you taking an extra look around the bedroom when you turn the lights out.
