    I havn't read one book by the Warrens yet that I don't enjoy! This book definantly had me spooked! Ed and Lorraine Warren are/were (Ed is with God) demonologists, so naturally everything paranormal is going to be a demonic infestation to them. I can see where they might get the impression about the demonic on the hauntings they talked about in this book, but they even included a way to make the big hairy man shaped creature, better known as bigfoot, a demonic force.
    I would not read this one if I

    I was very disappointed with this book. I was expecting to be scared, and creeped out, but every story fell short. They were dry case files. There was no suspense at all. I was expecting and hoping for so much more!

    This is the name of a great book written by Ed and Lorraine Warren with Robert David Chase. I was excited to get this book as I had already read THE DEMONOLOGIST (also written by Ed and Lorraine Warren), which was a most intriguing book. Most of us in the paranormal arena are all too aware of this dynamic duo. But for those of you who aren’t familiar with the Warrens, they are the only non-clergy approved by the Catholic church to perform exorcisms. The Warrens have been all over the world and a ...more

    It was an entertaining book, as far as fantasy goes. I do not put much validity in people who think that demons take the shape of human entities and harm the living. Their investigation of the Amityville House has been debunked by many investigators.

    While undeniably sincere, Ghost Hunters lacks all the tantalizing content expected of the genre. Hardly ever reaching farther than a victim's background, this book will disappoint any reader looking for detailed accounts of the paranormal.

    There were parts I found interesting, but overall this was just ok. I totally thought this would be my cup of tea. In reality, it didn't end up being anything like I thought it would be, and I just felt kind of meh about it.

    It's a compilation of short stories. I would've liked more detailed narratives better. I still find the Warrens very interesting people.

    Fifteen stories of the supernatural featuring Ed and Lorraine Warren, the demonologist psychic researchers. While the book is a bit sensationalistic in places (I think it's the co-author's doing), the stories themselves are really interesting and (yes, well) frightening. At the core of these stories that recount some of the Warrens' notable cases are the Warrens themselves, who seem quite down-to-earth, humble, likeable, and not prone to exaggeration or sensationalism. I admit: I was fascinated ...more

    Just finished this book after having seen the movie, "The Conjuring"... pretty creepy and pretty interesting, about demonologists Ed & Lorraine Warren. This is a collection of some of their cases, where they cast out demons & face "ghosts" in haunted houses and possessed people. They are devout Catholics, a down-to-earth intelligent couple who believed they were put together to help those who are trapped and savaged by demonic forces. Makes you examine exactly what you believe and why. T ...more

    Waste of money. I was really excited do read this after having read several books on this topic and being generally fascinated by the supernatural, but was disappointed. Actually got bored after "Chapter" 3. Don't waste your time on this.
    PLUS. I found the information in this book to be different from their accounts of the same stories in another book I read (which was actually quite good, it's called "Demonologist" by Gerald Brittle, gave me nightmares that), which makes me think they may actua

    A fascinating study of the supernatural

    Ghost Hunters by Ed and Lorraine Warren is a fascinating exploration of various cases that been brought in on. From a haunted village to a teen who messed with a Ouija board to a disturbed young man who found the touch of a woman rather cold, we get to explore some interesting supernatural settings here and see how the Warrens responded to them. Anyone who wants to know more bout the Warrens and the cases they investigate should check out this book.

    The stories featured in Ghost Hunters are exciting and spooky - the short story anthology format works very well. Whether or not you believe in the supernatural, some of the stories are compelling; this is a great read for anyone who liked the movie "The Conjuring" and is especially fun to read around Halloween.

    As for the actual writing, some of the stories were poignant; others were sensationalized or lacked sufficient detail to pull readers in. They read as though different people wrote each o

    After some further reaserach into their past, I learned alot about the Warren's and living one town over from Monroe got me to believe that somneof these things happened. With a majority of the stories in this book coming out of Connecticut it gave me a haunting realization that I live in one of the most haunted regions, especially when my bestfriend's front yard is supposed to be the most haunted place in New England, (easton, Ct Union Cemetery) though not discussed in Ghost Hunters, very convi ...more

    I remember I loved checking this book out from the library. My favorite story was the one where Lorraine Warren basically cracked a murder case open because a certain face kept haunting her in her dreams. I felt like the way it was written I could picture the face staring back at me and the murder scene was described excellently for someone with little experience in writing a crime scene. Just a good read if you like the paranormal or you are a fan of Ed or Lorraine Warren.

    What a great read to get you in the mood for the Halloween season. It was so interesting reading all the case files from Ed and Lorraine Warren and getting to know what their life was like working in this field. I was definitely scared a couple of times. If you are into real life ghost stories and the supernatural than I would recommending picking this book up. It was a fast read and was overall chilling at times, its not something I would usually pick up.

    Very interesting and informative

    I recommend this book for people who are interested in the fascinating lives of Ed and Lorraine Warren. Could not stop reading! Very informative and entertaining. The Warrens never disappoint when it comes to outlining their own in-depth experiences of their respective careers as the most fascinating documenters of the supernatural and other worldly realms!

    Relatively brief accounts of some of the cases of Ed and Lorraine Warren (who are featured in the move The Conjuring). Overall, well done. Creepy and unnerving at times. Learning of the small Connecticut town, Dudleytown, which is now abandoned and considered one of the most well known ghost towns.
    Feb 03, 2015 Brian rated it liked it  ·  review of another edition
    The writing is fairly elementary with a few awkward sentences that can be tweaked by the deft hand of a copy editor. The religious subtext of the Warrens' anecdotes is a little old school, but above all it gives a good cross section of their alleged 2,000 investigations. Worth the read if you're into ghosts, and can handle the heavy handed all ghosts are demons explanation.
    Robert Chapman
    As a long time fan of the horror movie genre, I'm no stranger to Ed and Lorraine Warren and their work. When I saw this book I just had to jump at the opportunity to learn about their lives and hear the details of actual cases from their careers.

    Although this book is a quick read, it was none the less very enjoyable and insightful.

    If you scare easily you should Not read this book. But it is a great read for the researcher and for people who have experiences with the paranormal. It is filled with very creepy true stores as told by the Warrens who are demonologist. I would not read it at night.

    I absolutely loved "The Demonologist" so I decided I'll check out another book but this one dissapointed me. I hate how the stories were quick and straight to the point. Another bad thing was the stories were not scary at all.

    Very creepy little book liked the fact it was fact based, gave very good insight into the people from the movie The Conjuring which was one of the scariest movies to come out in recent times. I do wish it would have had some pictures in it but aside from that a nice read.
    Bev Southall
    A little disappointing, I thought some of the cases depicted were a little far fetched and the cases that were very interesting did not have enough explanation. This is the first book in the series I have read but I got the overall impression it had been rushed somehow.

    I've always liked scary stories, so what better way than to read the true accounts by Ed and Lorraine Warren? While I won't give out any detail that is in the book, the one thing that I can and will say is that I wish that there were a little bit more details about the cases in the book.

    If you like things that go bump in the night, this book of supposedly true encounters with ghosts and demons will likely entertain you. Due to some of the subject matter, I would not recommend this book to young readers.

    Has some pretty impressive evidence in here. All right there are no pictures with a ghost smiling at you but the physical evidence is difficult to disprove
    A good read.
