The Demonologist: The Extraordinary Career of Ed and Lorraine Warren

The Demonologist: The Extraordinary Career of Ed and Lorraine WarrenThe Demonologist: The Extraordinary Career of Ed and Lorraine Warren by Gerald Brittle
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

At first, I was tempted to quit this book because it sounded so theatrical, but there was a lot more to it. People do a lot of things out of their own warped cussedness, but when I was working at the Dept. of Corrections, I saw something in some of the inmates that was way beyond ordinary evil. The most surprising were two juveniles, both under 14. Even though many of the personnel who had been there for years and years were talking about it. Years later I also saw a man who came to my English classes who had the same look. It wasn't just a look either. One child set his foster sister on fire, pushed her down the stairs and stood at the top and just watched her. The other killed a four year old and buried him in an outhouse.

This book was very interesting and there was a lot to think about. The Warrens certainly have a good reputation and the cases in the book were very convincing. The things they describe are consistent with other things I have read and it is obvious to me that evil certainly exists.
