Publisher's Summary

Ghosts know no season, respect no boundaries, and offer no mercy. Ed and Lorraine Warren, the world's most famous and respected demonologists, have devoted decades to exploring, authenticating, and conclusively documenting countless cases of otherworldly phenomena.

Best-selling books and hit motion pictures, including The Amityville Horror, A Haunting in Connecticut, Annabelle, The Conjuring, and The Conjuring 2 have been inspired by the Warrens' extraordinary real-life experiences with the supernatural. From the grounds of the United States military academy at West Point, New York, to the backwoods of Tennessee, Ghost Hunters chronicles their first-hand confrontations with the unknown, the unholy, and the unspeakable.

Here are the accounts of teenage girls who trifled with Satanism and séances, only to fall victim to the most horrifying of spirits. A village terrorized by a murderous, unstoppable force too evil to be anything but Hell-born. A family's home besieged by the relentless, destructive fury of poltergeists. The real facts behind the house of horrors in Amityville. In all, 14 terrifying tales, all the more spine-tingling because they're true!

©1989 Ed and Lorraine Warren with Robert David Chase (P)2016 Graymalkin Media

Decent Ghost Stories Terrible Narration

Are these the scariest stories I have ever heard? No, but they are entertaining. This is one book that is better to read.
The narrator has the most annoying voice and often adds an R to words which end in an A. He also tends to drop the final R in a word and end those words with an A sound. (Americarrrrrrr, killa)
If that wasn't bad enough when he read the female parts he would go into an irritating quasi falsetto. I should have just read the book.

Lacklustre offering - contradictory accounts

There is so much wrong with this book so lets start with whats right as tht would be a shorter list:
1) entertaining narration
2) nice 'fireside tales' kinda feel for around a campfire

the not so good
1) contradictory accounts of the Warrens' same stories. If you've read/listened to their other books, you would have heard of most of these stories but you'll be royally confused as details shift here and there. makes u wonder if it's all made up by the diff writers
2) the writer (or the warren's) vocab is rather limited. Demonic, supernatural. rinse. repeat
3) ridiculous religious notions - a youth who enjoys a bit of porn is suddenly possessed. because porn is wrong but verbally abusive, possessive, controlling mothers are a gift from god.
4) too little detail in many of the stories.

all in all, dont expect too much, take it as light entertainment and you'd be fine.

Not the best

It was a good book, but the stories were so fake sounding and dim witted. Don't get me wrong, some of the stories where okay. But as the book progressed it was dumber and crazy sounding. MEH. 😶

Skeptics need not apply

What disappointed you about Ghost Hunters?

This text tends to assume a lot on the part of the listener - while the "Conjuring" films leave a lot to the viewer to decide, this book just assumes that you believe in the Warrens' brand of parapsychology and in their vaunted ability to combat the paranormal. More frustrating is the fact that the book appears to be written with little in the way of suspense, atmosphere, or dread - what I assume to be major revelations are delivered with all the impact of a lightly-tossed pillow due to the author's bland and rather unimaginative relation of the events of several cases.

Has Ghost Hunters turned you off from other books in this genre?

Yes. While I am not a beliver, I did enter this book expecting what the title seemed to offer - a collection of ghost stories with the Warrens at the center. Far from my expectations, the book has more in common with an unimaginatively-produced documentary than it does with the films that led me to want to read it in the first place.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Todd Haberkorn?

The narrator has a competent reading style, but his voices for Ed and Lorraine Warren border on the cartoonish. While these might be based on how the individuals actually speak, it's jarring and further contributes to the tonal disconnect between the subject matter and writing style.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Ghost Hunters?

The text overall needs a less credulous tone, and the Warrens themselves might benefit from a bit of restraint in choosing how they depict themselves and events within the text that bear their names. If you're writing what are effectively ghost stories, you should perhaps attempt to deliver on the visceral promise of the genre rather than reduce everything to a series of largely colorless anecdotes.

Any additional comments?

If you're a fan of the Warrens, or a believer in their particular brand of self-promotional "demonology", this is a harmless read; if you're looking for something with any kind of texture, suspense, or eye towards being anything more than a glowing review of the Warrens' career, you will be sorely dissapointed.

Ed and Lorraine Warren strike again!

I was so excited about reading this book because I've been a big fan of Ed & Lorraine since I watched the TV series, "A Haunting." This book is like an anthology of some of the cases they have worked on through the years.

Of course, we read about people becoming demonically possessed. Houses or towns that are cursed and people are experiencing some pretty scary stuff! Of course, Amityville is in here! Lorraine helped a few police officers solve some murder cases. I was shocked that there was even a story about Bigfoot in here!

Done!! Give me a break!!

I enjoy books about the supernatural very much. However, the way things are told in the book annoyed me. Ed & Lorraine Warren's commentary is saccharine sweet. They appear so overly sweet that it becomes unbelievable. I found myself rolling my eyes at their Pollyanna attitudes. I didn't even finish the book!

Can't Help Myself

What did you like best about Ghost Hunters? What did you like least?

I can't help myself. I like these people and I love learning about their investigations.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Not sure but it was enjoyable enough that I want to read more. I would have had the authors read it though. I like Ed's voice.

What three words best describe Todd Haberkorn’s voice?

I don't recall.

Did Ghost Hunters inspire you to do anything?

Read all of their books.

Any additional comments?

Love this couple and their books.
