really liked it
Read in January, 2006

I initially liked the writing and would have rated it a 4 were it a work of fiction, but since it was trumpeted as a true story and since it was clearly such a monstrous piece of bullshit nonsense, I gave the book a 2. Ed & Lorraine Warren didn't deserve a higher rating and I figured that any author who would get lumped in with them and with this ridiculous and exploitative story didn't, either.
However, I just listened to Ray Garton being interviewed on "Monster Talk" where I learned that he pretty much feels the way I do, doesn't like the books, and is certain that the people involved with the story made it up to cover their son's mental illness as well as to help with their financial difficulties. So, THEY (the Warrens and the Snedekers) were the bullshitters and Garton has never been anything but contemptuous about them. Good on him.
