Publisher's summary

Every day, people innocently acquire ordinary personal and household items that secretly come with spirit attachments, demonic forces, residues of the dead, and curses. They are shocked when the haunted objects create a paranormal nightmare. 

For decades, John Zaffis, star of Haunted Collector on SyFy, has helped victims of terrifying spirit invasions that began with dolls, toys, clothing, games, art, antiques, furniture, jewelry, and musical instruments. His Museum of the Paranormal houses the strangest collection of haunted items on the planet. 

In this audiobook, John Zaffis and Rosemary Ellen Guiley, the two biggest names in paranormal expertise, examine John’s most frightening cases of haunted objects. These stories will make you think twice about every single item you own.

Cringe

I’m am instantly wary of anything related to Ed and Lorraine Warren but I wanted to have an open mind and decided to listen anyway. It’s hard to believe these stories because the investigator has to much of a vested interest in finding haunted items for their museum. That is no doubt why he would insist that once the items were cleansed the owners couldn’t keep them. The writing is very cringy as well so that really doesn’t help when you are trying to take the stories seriously.

Could be better

The story is good but the narrator is not very good with the voices he uses. They are annoying at times. This audio book needed a better editor as well because phrases repeat themselves, one instance the narrator said the same sentence four times! I would only pay five dollars for this if I had this knowledge as it is a good story but not well presented.

Tech issues; read back seems to get "stuck"

I noticed in nearly every chapter there is a word, partial and sometimes complete sentences that would repeat multiple times before moving on. Without a doubt more repeats than can be chocked up to dramatic narration. Otherwise an OK book. Lots of references to other books for detailed accounts of the best case examples documented which was frustrating.

Bad Stories and Awful Voice Acting

The stories told are very over dramatic and extremely predictable like a low budget syfy movie that you’d watch just to make fun of for the bad qualities. The voice acting uses every stereotypical voice you can think of and they’re all done awfully. The only parts of this book I enjoyed are the small and few facts that were thrown in, like the origins of the word genie. If you are looking for a well told collection of supernatural and unexplainable I would not recommend this book. Try Aaron Manhkey’s new books.

Better than his first book

I found this book to be better than the first Zaffis book, which I felt was a little out there and self serving. But this one is more true to his show where it covers ordinary people who encounter extraordinary items. Narrator is good at his Zaffis impersonation. There are other times he sounds like Keanu Reeves. Overall, it's an entertaining book.

Unconvinced

The material is pretty interesting in itself, but I find the tone of the writing slightly self-congratulatory and didactic about things that many people see as matters of belief or interpretation. Also, I’m sorry, but a talented voice-actor Mr Cano is not, although he does a very good John Zaffis imitation.
