Présentation de l'éditeur

Ed and Lorraine Warren are considered America's foremost experts on demonology and exorcism. With thousands of investigations to their credit, they reveal what actually breaks the peace in haunted houses and how it can happen to you. Don’t miss the Warrens in the blockbuster film, "The Conjuring." In The Demonologist, the Warrens discuss many of their cases including “Annabelle” and “The Enfield Poltergeist” – those case files are the basis for the upcoming films “Annabelle” and “The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist.” If you think ghosts are only responsible for hauntings, think again. Used as a text in seminaries and classrooms, this is one book you can't put down. Now includes exclusive photographic documentation of phenomena in progress.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Un bon livre sur les Warren 30 septembre 2013
Format:Broché
Après avoir vu the conjuring, j'ai souhaité approfondir le sujet. Le livre raconte des enquêtes célèbres des Warren comme le cas d' Amitiville ou d'Annabelle. Ces chapitres sont intéressants mais hélas entrecoupés de chapitres plus généralistes tentant d'expliquer le phénomène général qui se répètent beaucoup. Le livre est écrit dans un anglais simple et se lit donc sans trop de difficulté, prévoyez une appli de traduction tout de même pour le vocabulaire. Je le conseille à tous ceux qui voudraient en savoir plus sur les Warren.

More than the description of actual possessions, this narration is beautiful as it keeps reminding us about how being a good person is important and how focusing on the positive is the real reason we , humans, exist on earth.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Demons are Real, and cause illness, mental and physical 26 novembre 2004
Par L. Haney
Format:Broché
I have been in the exorcism/sanctification and purification work for over 17 years now. This book will teach you many logical and extraordinary things. Do not read this book just as a "lark" or a story, for these things are real. There are many books that tell of these aspects but also create an attitude of fear as they do. This can instill false fear, since faith and trust in Love and the Lord's power turns all fear aside, and demons out on their rear! Another book that is incredible, and has several chapters on deliverance and cleansing prayers, and how to tell if it is medical or demonic, is by Tiffany Snow, The Power of Divine, A Healer's Guide. It's a book on healing, but that is what Jesus did also - deliverance right along side healing. Many of the illnesses that conventional medicine can't get rid of are actually demon infestation.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 You might not be prepared for this. 7 octobre 2004
Par M. E. Boisvert - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I know I was not prepared for this. I love horror movies and books, have seen the Exorcist, the Omen, Rosemary's Baby, The Exorcist III, etc. I have read both the Exorcist and it's sequel, Legion. And I have even seen the Warrens' seminar four times. I sat down with this book expecting a good scare and some good entertainment. What I got was something else altogether.

To start, The Exorcist is a cakewalk compared to this. It puts any Stephen King or H. P. Lovecraft story to shame. It's simply the most frightening book I have ever read. This is partly due to how convincing it is and partly do to how it portrays real horror. It describes the intelligence and strategy of the demonic spirit, and the insanity, terror, and consequences they're capable of. The Exorcist seems like a very mild case of exorcism after reading this.

But more importantly, this book makes you think. It wasn't written to scare or even to shock. It was written to inform. I didn't come into this a believer, either in the supernatural or religion. I was a curious enthusiast who found the Warrens to be fascinating, even if they are just conartists. (Maybe they are, maybe they aren't. I don't care.) But since I've finished it I've had to completely reevaluate my stance on religion. I think it gives a deeper understanding of true evil and a very real God. This book didn't make me run out and find Jesus, but it did make me rethink religion. One very important reason for this is that the book, even though the Warrens are Catholics, doesn't cater to one faith. Instead it paints a picture of religion that includes all faiths. It basically backs up the belief that all major religions worship the same God, just in different ways.

The case for the existence of demonic spirits is so carefully thought out, so tactfully delivered that one can't help but wonder. I couldn't help starting to believe. This is a very different type of book than The Exorcist or Rosemary's Baby. For one I found reading it at night unbearable.

The book goes on to make the bizarre and ridiculous stories like Amityville seem so much more possible. After reading this the so-called "evidence" that these stories are hoaxes will seem laughable. It will be clear that those people just don't understand.

Many reviews here will tell you that strange things happened to the reader while they were reading the book. This is ridiculous and untrue. For one, this book is doing just what the Devil doesn't want, exposing his truth. Reading it is quite safe and will make you less likely to experience something like this. Knowledge is key. The greatest trick the Devil ever played was convincing the world that he doesn't exist.

So I urge you to read this. You won't forget it. You won't regret it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 (A++) A Frightening Book About Real Documented Demons 31 octobre 2003
Par OverTheMoon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This is extraordinarily terrifying non-fiction. First off all I can safely say that many would find themselves better off not reading this book if they are of a nervous disposition. It is extremely serious in tone and probably one of the most compelling dissertations on the phenomena of ghosts, spirits and demons that I have come across. This is not your casual, "I saw a ghost floating across a room in a haunted house" or "I felt a cold spot in my bedroom and watched a glowing orb" type ghost book. It is more along the lines of "This entity was ripping my living room to shreds, writing obscene messages on the walls and appearing behind me as a disfigured monk with no eyes who then proceeded to attack me while my family screamed in terror as they huddled together on the staircase."
I was really unsure of what I was getting myself into here. I heard that this book had a cult following and that Stephen King basically calls it his best book of reference. I was aware that this book was about two "ghost hunters" - Ed and Lorraine Warren and covers some of their research, spanning some 60 years, along with various case studies. What I did not know is that this book actually makes a valid statement on the entire issue of haunted houses, ghosts and demons and even goes into elaborate explanations for these phenomena. Truth be told I have read some highly professional books on this very topic before. Here is a word of advice. If you are seriously interested in learning more about the Occult then read "The Tibetan Book of the Dead" by W.Y.Evans-Wentz. It has forward by Jung. It is an ancient Tibetan Holy book that elaborates on and explains many different types of psychic phenomena but the book is not classed as such. It is a religious/psychological book about Tibetan Buddhism but it clarifies a lot about the supernatural. So I was well armed going into this one with at least a little more knowledge on the subject that your average reader.
The first thing that struck me was the authenticity of what I was reading. There are many books on this topic that would make me laugh or at least see another logical reason for what was going on. "The Demonologist" is having none of that. It is straightforward - here is another world, YOUR WORLD, where demons actually exist creating misery for peoples lives. Everything is explained in relentless detail without sparing the readers unease about such a topic. The book moves between cases of demonic disturbances (incorrectly referred to as Poltergeist activity according to the author) and the lives of the two researchers/demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren. Most of the book is done in an interview fashion with Ed and Lorraine answering many questions and telling several stories about their many encounters with the diabolical. One story, about a family called the Donovans, will blow your mind. The case is also illustrated with photographs of demonic activity in progress. There is also transcripts of conversations with ghosts and demons from tape recordings.
Ed and Lorraine Warren are not "ghost hunters" per se. Ed actually uses religious strategies and holy objects to establish and combat the very physical presence of an "inhuman" spirit that is usually violent and on the offensive. Lorraine uses her sixth sense to establish connections with "human" spirits that are passive and inoffensive and are just looking for resolution to their misery. The book mostly concentrates on the malevolent "inhuman" type.
There is also something tremendously otherworldly about the book itself as if it carries with it some sort of direct connection to the Warrens experiences. "Potent" would be the best word to describe it. I am telling you right now in an honest manner, do not go near this book if you think you will be uncomfortable about the subject matter. The mildest parts of this book are utterly mind shattering and the more disturbing elements will deliver instant insomnia with unfeigned paranoia by the truckload. Only for the hardened spiritual explorers who can deal with the "demon shock" - The Exorcist is kindergarten in comparison.
**As a note there is apparently a problem with the US edition which has been heavily edited and is missing pictures. The UNCUT edition is available from the UK. I went the extra mile and got the UNCUT version but I have not seen the US edition so I can not say with certainty that this is the case except that other reviewers too have pointed out that the US edition is cut. Get it from Amazon UK if you want the UNCUT version like I did.**
My only critic about this book is the pictures. Please reprint them as quality standard middle section pictures next time! The resolution was not the best - however, like the rest of the book, they certainly are unsettling.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Rock-Solid. It's In My Top Ten Non-Fiction List. 1 juillet 2004
Par Marifrances - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
It's understandable that most people would dismiss a book like this out of hand. However, considering that this book really does stand in a league of its own, it would be the reader's loss to give this a miss.
I've read widely in many genres including the "ghost/spirit" genre. As a librarian, it has been my job to review non-fiction books of all varieties and judge them for quality. I also have a bit of an interest in the topic personally. So, when I say this book is most recommended, and is in fact in my Top Ten Non-Fiction List, I sincerely mean what I am saying.
I know that the subject seems a bit ... cheesy. Frankly, it's been done to death (no pun intended), but it has never been done RIGHT until Mr. Brittle's book came along. Conjecture, sensationalism, cornyness, New Age claptrap -- I wouldn't blame you if you thought this book was just another lame "Magic for Dummies" type offering. HOWEVER:
1. This book was meticulously researched and documented.
2. This book does not contain anything remotely cheesy. In fact, the cases in this book are explored with a brisk, no-nonsense tone.
3. The pictures included are worth seeing.
4. Ed and Lorraine Warren did not collect phat paychex for going into haunted houses. In fact, they did all of their work for free. Contrast that with many of the so-called "psychic researchers" we see on TV today.
5. This book reads more like a textbook than it does anything else.
6. This book does not try to push religion or in fact any viewpoint down the reader's throat. The facts are presented and you are left to make up your own mind.
7. Ed and Lorraine kick b*tt and make no apologies for their beliefs.
I was very happy to see this book available on Amazon, as it was out of print for years and the only copy I could find was on Alibris for $100.
I would say, buy this book while you can. You'll thank me -- and you'll thank Gerald Brittle, Ed, and Lorraine for being forthright about this much-maligned topic.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A well-written review of true Demonology. 6 juin 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
This book was well done, although the writer did take some liberties an adulterize the dialogue--in other words, he corrected grammar and used non-daily vocabulary that leads me to believe that he wrote his own dialogue for those parts. However, the book does bring up some interesting points about demons that need to be said in our modern times:
1) The Ouija board is not a harmless game. By inviting spirits to communicate, a door is thrown open to infestation, oppression, and eventual possession by demonic spirits.
2) Black magic is not a tool easily wielded by humans. Black magic asks demons to carry out your bidding; the price of labor usually amounts to the tune of your soul.
3) Demons have, do, and will continue to exist in the world. Because of the public interest, books of real rituals are being printed up and "sold like candy," and so demonic phenomena has begun to be on the rise.
4) Exorcism is a secret ritual that is still performed today. In one year, an average of about six hundered exorcisms is approved and carried out by Church Officials (exorcism is normally carried out by Catholic clergy).
5) Just some trivia: Demons are the slave force of hell. Devils are their managers. To name a demon or devil specifically is to acknowledge it and give it power over you and the physical realm (ghosts and demons inhabit the metaphysical realm).
6) Ghosts are human spirits that are the remnant of the dead--someone you don't know. Apparitions are ghosts of someone you know. Demons--and angels, for what are demons but fallen angels--have never been alive and never will be. They have been walking the Earth since before the end of time.
7) Never confront a demon in any form for any reason.
Stuff I can corroborate with other books on the subject. Be careful with yourselves.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Benchmark.... 14 janvier 2006
Par Holt - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I purchased my copy of this book over 20 years ago. I would assume it was from the first, un-cut printing.

I have always enjoyed reading about all things paranormal. At the time that I purchased this book, I had already read several Stephen King novels and many other books from the horror and paranormal genres (fictional and non-fictional), so I thought I was in for just another good read.

Little did I know that this book would become the measuring stick from which I would compare every other "scary" book or movie since. My reaction pretty much mirrors what other reviewers have said. Not only did it keep me awake at night, I really didn't want to be alone very much after reading it.

Sometimes, it seems that the motion picture industry and other media portrays the supernatural with special affects and plot lines that are "over-the-top", this book brought the supernatural to a grass-roots, "this could happen to me" level.

Although I'm naturally a skeptical sort and take most things with a grain of salt, I've never really been able to "move on" from this book.

I'm not a professional reviewer (I don't even qualify as a layman), I've just read a lot of books over the years. Not one of them affected me the way that "The Demonologist" did. Even now, after all this time, (25 years, give or take), the memory of some of the events portrayed in this book scares the crap out of me.

If you enjoy reading about the paranormal, pick this one up. You may, or may not, ever forget it.....
