The Demonologist: The Extraordinary Career of Ed and Lorraine Warren
The Demonologist: The Extraordinary Career of Ed and Lorraine Warren | Gerald Brittle
If you think ghosts are only responsible for hauntings, think again. The Demonologist reveals the grave religious process behind supernatural events and how it can happen to you. Used as a text in seminaries and classrooms, this is one book you can't put down. For over five decades Ed and Loraine Warren have been considered America's foremost experts on demonology and exorcism. With over 3,000 investigations to their credit, they reveal what actually breaks the peace in haunted houses. Expertly written by Gerald Daniel Brittle, a nonfiction writer with advanced degrees in literature and psychology specializing in mystical theology. Don't miss the Warrens in the new movie "The Conjuring."

I think enjoyment of this book depends on the readers belief in the supernatural. The book is heavily biased, as one would expect of a biography of the Warrens. I still do not believe, but I enjoyed finding out more about the lives of this extraordinary couple and the cases are they were involved with. A good read for fans of The Conjuring franchise.

1) So I did absolutely nothing this weekend. I was lazy and tired, but I did make chili.
2) drinking coffee & not wanting to go to work. It's snowing & extremely windy & I just don't want to go out there. ❄😔
3) tagged, just finished last night.
4) food to make fish tacos.
5) I love all food, but maybe Asian?

JaclynW Snow! I see snow in our mountains but it hasn't made it's way down to me. Yet. 1y
KrystleTheBookSlayer @JaclynW I hate snow, but I think the snow we're getting should melt. I'm hoping for a relatively snow free October because I'm just not ready for winter yet. 😬❄ 1y
JaclynW @KrystleTheBookSlayer I'm not ready for Winter either! I would like to enjoy an Autumn first. 😉 1y

This was somewhere between a so-so & a pick rating. I'm always skeptical of these types of books, which of course doesn't help with my rating. There were also some dull parts that somehow read like a boring textbook about demonic activity. What I did find really interesting were when the Warren's looked back at prior cases, such as Amityville, Enfield, the Annabelle doll, the story that inspired the Conjuring film, & the possession stories.

Reggie I was in shock when they asked the family if they dabbled in the occult and they said we bought her a book called How to conjure 25 lower level demons!!! For Christmas. Lol what were they thinking. 1y
KrystleTheBookSlayer @Reggie agreed, I kept thinking "where are these people even shopping at?" and "how is that remotely an appropriate gift for a child on Christmas?" I'm placing most of the blame on the parents for that one! ? 1y

This marks my second #SpookyListen of the season so far! It‘s a bit light on details- and seems to only use the Warrens themselves as a resource... but it does deliver some goosebump-inducing chills- perfect for #AudioColoring and #AudioDecorating

Starting this one. I'm not necessarily a disbeliever, but I'm certainly skeptical when it comes to tales of the supernatural when promoted as true. That being said, I do find Ed & Lorraine Warren to be fascinating, especially when so many people praise the Warren's for helping with their demonic problems. Although I'm expecting a lot of religious overtones, I think this is a perfect listen for October.

Reggie I don‘t think this book is very pushy where religion is concerned but the back half of it creeped me out because it is all based on true events. Like a couple of weeks ago a girl got a Quija pillow on Litsy and I almost messaged her she should burn it. Just because of this book. Lol, I hope you enjoy it. 1y

Finished this one last night so I'm counting it towards my #MarchReads ? I really enjoyed the stories of Ed and Lorraine's cases but I found a lot of the book read a little too textbook for me. It was still really interesting to read about some of the things they have done and witnessed. I think a little less "lecture" and less repetiveness would have made the book a bit easier to read. Worth giving it a shot though.

Lova I agree. I never finished it. Maybe I‘ll try again. 2y

This picture actually sums up my weekend pretty nicely, although I'm almost caught up on This is Us now. Long weekends are for nachos, binge-watching and Panda Jammies 😄 seriously, they are ridiculously comfy and fuzzy so they are only coming off long enough to get washed 🐼

I'll also be reading....going to finish my #currentread and hopefully one more before the end of the month!!!

I pretty much enjoyed reading this book. There wasn‘t the usual claptrap that can be found in books of this genre. There were a few points in the book I had a hard time “believing” ,for want of a better word, due to what I thought was just plain cheesy pr absurd. It‘s a hard book to totally denounce or totally hail as the definitive truth. That is left for you readers. 🙂

What a great way to start off the fall season! This book really was more informative than anything else. They used specific examples of the Warrens‘ cases and popular cases that are well known to illustrate the validity of their research. I found this to be terrifying, but also interesting to learn about. I‘m even more of a believer in the spiritual world now.

Lots of different cases of The Warrens are reflected on. Not too scary, but there were a few parts where I had to sleep with the lights on!

35% into the book
Nothing is happening
Nothing major is described
The Conjuring along with Annabelle were the only cases in details
A lot of reputation in the narrative and nothing about the lives of the Warrens
I had to DNF

30% in and I hope this book picks up a bit. A lot of repeated ideas and narratives. So far only Annabelle and the Amytiville horror are described in bit of details. Now into the Conjuring chapter.

Based on the reviews & blurbs I've read, I thought this book would be scarier than it was. The author only went into detail on two cases The Warrens dealt with & glossed over some others. I was hoping it would be like the courses or talks The Warrens gave; I think that would've made the book more interesting.

I'm late in starting #24in48 thanks to a Disneyland "hangover." I'm about 100 pages into The Demonologist. It's not as scary as I thought it would be. I suspect I had it built up in my head because of the reviews!

My stack for #24in48. I'm about 20 pages into The Demonologist. I'm kinda scared to read it. I also have some ebooks to read.
