"This book was 10 days late to the library :( I stopped reading it to start reading the Joyce Magnin books that were ordered by interlibrary loan. A friend let me borrow this book. So, now I've got to find it so I can finish it & give it back to her. I told Dr. B I was reading it at my last doctor's appt. & he said, "It's a fun little book." Well, I appreciate his modesty, but it's more than a fun little book." Nov 14, 2012 10:16PM

This is an excellent book. I enjoyed reading it. Especially about demons. It seems as if demons is a tabu subject, where they are real. I wish I had read this book last spring before my time spent in the hospital.
