Top critical review
Straightforward, witness confirmed account of events written to warn and help someone with similar problems.
on 17 November 2015
It is difficult to write about something like these happenings. I do not think I would be able to do the job any better than the author of this book. The thought "Is this possible at all" never crossed my mind, as I think modern science doesn't know everything and can't explain many things.
The prose is a bit flat, but this is what to expect if you try to stick to facts and you are not a professional writer. I winced once or twice at passages like "I gathered my blond tresses..." though.
If you forget the literary quality of the writing and focus on the events in the book, some things immediately jump at you. First, the unpleasant, to say the least, phenomena seem to be connected to individuals. Second, Ouija boards are often involved, even if one used them a long time ago. Third, Church doesn't seem to be exactly helpful. I was truly glad to read that the priests did eventually perform Exorcism and it made things better. Another thing is - once direct and obvious danger like spontaneous combustion is over, people tend to forget what they are dealing with and engage into a dialogue or even play with poltergeist. I couldn't help thinking it is probably extremely dangerous, to encourage communication with something like this.
I am glad the family is now safer and can have their lives back. They are very, very brave people. It was touching how they cared for their dogs amidst the worst nightmare of their lives too.
